"One Step Closer" as written by Timothy John Lever, Mike Percy and Cathy Dennis....
I've been waiting just a long time
Just trying to get through
And it's taking all of my strength
To keep me here away from you
It doesn't matter
Just how long it takes
Nothing changes
When we're apart
It's just a little bit longer
We've come this far

One step closer to heaven baby
Means one step closer to you
There'll be no more livin'
Without you baby
I'll be counting each minute
'Till i'm back to you
One step closer to heaven baby
Hold on hold on
Hold on to my lovin'

I've been saving every little bit
Of my love for you
I've been dreaming just to get by
It's so exciting, Fantasising
It doesn't matter
Just how long it takes
Just to know
We'll be back together
And this time its forever

One step closer to heaven baby
Means one step closer to you
There'll be no more livin'
Without you baby
I'll be counting each minute
'Till I'm back to you
One step closer to heaven baby
Hold on hold on
Hold on to my lovin'

It doesn't matter
Just how long it takes
Nothing changes
When we're apart
It's just a little bit longer
We've come this far

One step closer to heaven baby
Means one step closer to you
There'll be no more livin'
Without you baby
I'll be counting each minute
'Till i'm back to you
One step closer to heaven baby
Hold on hold on
Hold on to my lovin'

    General Commentwhen i saw this was called 'one step closer', i thought they had covered a linkin park track.

    seriously though, this song pushes the boundaries of rediculousness.

    General Commentthis is just terrible, not just the whole corporate bitches thing these kids have got going on but the fact these kids are like 11 or 12 and they're 'singing' love songs?

    What do these kids know about that (albeit they didn't write the lyrics themselves), talking about not "living without you baby". Yeah i can really see a bunch of 11 year old kids thinking that sort of thing.

    General Commentwell i think it's great that these young children with the toootally unique hopes and dreams at that age of becomming the next britney spears' are being exploited and as a result will miss out on their education and fizzle out into working at tesco's by the time they're 19... nothing against tesco's that is :)

    General Commentactually i believe they are a highly talented, smart, intelligent group of youngsters who deserve all the success handed to them on a silver plate. I also believe they are not being exploited by simon fuller as part of his bid to take over the music industry or that their success is any way related to their good friends s club 7 and that they will be around for many years and will stay away from drugs etc. and live clean lives and will never resort to doing any appearenes or pop years or any similar program to get some cash coming in and remind people who they were. i also believe they will always be proud that they were an s club junior.

    ladies and gentlemen i give you sarcasm:)

    General CommentDoes anyone actually like them? I mean, even S Club (7) hate them. And I'd like to kill that annoying one with the curly hair.

    General Commenti had the pleasure of debating these lyrics with a 5 year old actually. (i don't like them either, just for the record, or the music style in general) but anyway, this 5 year old has decided that these lyrics are not about love but about somebody who's friend is in heaven and they want to die soon so they can get closer to them... lol, now i could actually give her some lyrics that actually are about that.. but i think her parents might disaprove .. just felt like telling somone all of that. random i know.

    General Commenti went to school with the curly haired one.

    we threw sandwiches at her so she left.
