One Step Ahead  - Split Enz
From 'Waiata' and 'Enz of an Era'.

Transcribed by John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz).

INTRO: (bass line only: no chords)
 G   F#   D   C#   C   G   C   C#

 Em/G      D/F#      Bm/D    Em/C#
 One step ahead of you
         C  G            C    Em/C#
 Stay in motion, keep an open mind
 Em/G      D/F#        Bm/D    Em/C#
 Love is a race run by two
       C  G       C   Em/C#
 Your emotion, my solitude
      A            Dm/A    A
 If I stop I could lose my head
        G          C   A
 So I'm losing you instead
        Dm/A       Dm
 Either way I'm confused
             C                 Asus2
 You slow me down - what can I do?
         Dm             C             Em/G    A
 There's one particular way I have to choose

 One step ahead of you
 Always someone makes it hard to move
 She says: "Boy, I want you to stay"
 But I save it all for another day
 If I stop I could lose my head
 But I'm ready for romance
 Either way I'm confused
 I don't know what I'm s'posed to do
 I can only stay one step ahead of you

 La da-de-da-dah (etc)
 Stop! I confess sometimes
 I don't know where I'm going
 Part of me stays with you
 I'm slowing down, what can I do?
 It's hard to stay one step ahead of you

 One step ahead of you
 Time is running out, catching up with you
 One step ahead of you
 When I hold you close can I really lose?
 One step ahead, only one step ahead
 She's one step ahead of you...
