"One Step Closer Away" as written by and Jeffrey John/martin Burrows....
I know your name, I heard you call
A distant voice behind the wall
Something stands in our way
She said
She said

I know a place where we can go
Where on one cares and no one knows
If it's passion or play

You speak in tongues
You read my mind
I'd give it all
To see a sign
But you're taking forever

Time stands still and you stay
One step closer away
Will it take us forever

And so, I climbed the wall, I needed proof
Uncertain signs, need certain truths
With every step you take
She said, she said

You need to search, between the seams
You need to twist within the dream
You're one step closer away

You speak in tongues
You read my mind
I'd give it all
To see a sign
But you're taking forever

Time stands still and you stay
One step closer away
Will it take us forever

Time stands still and you stay
One step closer away
Will it take us forever

You've always been
You've always known
That all this time
I've been alone
I've always searched
For what I've lost
Beneath a rose
Behind a cross
You're always there
You're everywhere
Will it take us forever

You speak in tongues
You read my mind
I'd give it all
To see a sign
But you're taking forever

Time stands still and you stay
One step closer away
Will it take us forever

Time stands still and you stay
One step closer away
Will it take us forever

    General Commentamazing song! i think its about wanting to be with someone really badly, but each step you take is "one step closer away". you try so hard but it gets you nowhere.
