One Step Forward (and another one back)

I've always wanted to sound like the music I hear, not like the way I sing. That doesn't happen here, but there is a heartfelt innocence to the cry.


Oh father, do you love me?

Father, do you need me?

Father, can you hear me?

I'll walk to you

One step forward and another one back

Oh lord how many steps will I take this way?

How many steps will I have to stay?

Walking here and walking there

Praying this and wanting that

Give me hope, a straight path and your favor

You give grace and in the eyes of your people I see love

Don't close your eyes good people

Give me a straight path and your favor

Praying this and wanting that

Walking here and walking there

How many steps will I have to stay?

Oh Lord, how many steps will I take this way?

One step forward and another one back
