"Step By Step" as written by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson....
I was just a joker in a serious game
I Didn't have the Heart to play
But sooner or later
I'll find a reason to throw it away
Risin' on the crest of a natural wave
That Never seems to break my way
I'm livin' without it

But I got to Do something about it
Step by step little by little
Step by step take it line by line
Move move move, move a Little closer

I was Just a runner in a one horse race
Livin' on the don't pass line
Sooner or later
I Got to lose cause I'm wasting my time
Lady luck must have been a wonderful girl
She's never been a Friend of mine
I'm living without her
But I still got that mountain to climb

Step by step little by little
Step by step rake it line by line
Move move move, move a little closer

Step by step the Deal is mine

    General CommentThese lyrics are a little bit wrong:

    I was just a joker in a serious game
    I didn't have the heart to play
    But sooner or later
    I'll find a reason to tkrow it away
    Risin' on the crest of a natural wave
    That never seems to break my way
    I'm livin' without it
    But I got to do something about it

    Step by step, little by little move a little closer to me
    Step by step take it line by line one day at a time
    Move move move, move a little closer to me
    Step by step
    The deal is mine

    I was just a runner in a one horse race
    Livin' on the don't pass line
    Sooner or later
    I got to lose cause I'm wasting my time
    Lady Luck must have been a wonderful girl
    She's never been a friend of mine
    I'm living without her
    But I still got that mountain to climb

    Step by step, little by little, move a little closer to me
    Step by step take it line by line, one day at a time
    Move move move, move a little closer to me
    Step by step the deal is mine

    Step by step little by little, move a little closer to me
    Step by step take it line by line, one day at a time
    Move move move, move a little closer to me
    Step by step, the deal is mine




    sounds like someone gambling or betting on a horse race maybe anyone have any ideas?

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who doesn't take risks, but realizes that he now must make a risk.

    Song MeaningThe person who doesn't 'have the heart to play', doesn't, because he assumes he will lose anyway. This song is about building hope in the face of hopelessness. Maybe you can talk yourself into hope, but at the same time, it doesn't change the reality of your chances of success (not so good).
