One Step at a Time

Music & lyrics by David Imrie

Oh Jenny marry me
Let’s walk the shores by faded seas
And maybe have a child or two
To grow as images of me and you

But oh she says
This isn’t really serious
I wish you’d take things
One step at a time

My dreams you crush so carelessly
I hide a tear she doesn’t see
We’re man and woman both in need
I don’t know why you complicate it so

And she just looks
Anywhere but me
Oh and at my heart
Upon my sleeve

I sometimes wish a war would come
To feel the pressure of the bombs
That rain down deadly from the sky
To make the most of now

Because
Time goes by
And all that I do with peace
Is cry, cry, cry

[repeat 1st verse]
