"One Step Ahead" as written by and Neil Finn....
One step ahead of you
stay in motion, keep an open mind
Love is a race won by two
Your emotion, my solitude
If I stop I could lose my head
So I'm losing you instead
Either way I'm confused
You slow me down, what can I do?
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 supposed to do
I can only stay
One step ahead of you

Da, da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, da
Da, da, da, dumb

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
(Uh huh)

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

    General CommentWhat an awesome song!! Neil Finn is amazing. I love the funky organ in the background - kind of reminds me of a funhouse or something freaky like that...

    General CommentSplit Enz were an amazing band and I reckon that this song and maybe I Got You could hit the top 40 if they were re released because there simply ain't this quality of song around today

    My InterpretationHe starts out wanting the relationship to move on but maybe he's being a little to hurried and that makes him confused because it's not going the way he wants it.

    Things become so entangled and confusing that in the end he doesn't see how far ahead she is and he's kind of left behind with his confusion...
