--------------------...................

*Released 1965*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Eb)


Intro:

Dmaj7  Em7, G
Dmaj7, A

Verse 1:

         Dmaj7             Em7   G
I'm only one step ahead of heart-break,
Dmaj7              F#m  B7
 One step ahead of mise-ry.
Em                 F#m
 One step is all I have to take,
Bm
 Backwards,
          Em
To be the same old fool for you,
              A (n.c)
I used to be.

Verse 2:

         Dmaj7             Em7  G
I'm only one step ahead of your arms,
Dmaj7               F#m        B7
 One kiss away from your sweet lips.
Em                 F#m
 I know I can't af-ford to stop,
        Bm
For one moment,
                     Em
'Cos I'm just out of reach,
                   A, A7
Of your fingertips.

Bridge 1:

D
 Your warm breath,
Bm
 On my shoulder,
D                Bm
 Keeps reminding me,
          Em
That it's too soon to forget you,
     C#             F#m   C#
It's too late to be free,
          Em   A
Can't you see?

Verse 3:

         Dmaj7             Em7  G
I'm only one step ahead of your love,
Dmaj7            F#m        B7
 I try and yet I can't take two.
Em
 Seems like I'll have,
   F#m                Bm
To take that one step backwards...

Coda:

     Em7
'Cos one step ahead,
                       A    Dmaj7  Bm
Is a step too far away from you.
     Em7
'Cos one step ahead,
                       A    Dmaj7  Bm
Is a step too far away from you.
