"A Step Behind" as written by and Adam Teddy Thompson....
It's not so much that you left
It's that you didn't come back
It's not the pain that you left
But the obvious lack

I was always a step behind
I was always a step behind

It wasn't watching you go
But the way that you went
With a kiss on the cheek
And a cheque for the rent

I was always a step behind
I was always a step behind

It wasn't really your fault
'Cause you made it mine too
While you were looking around
I was looking at you.

I was always a step behind
I was always a step behind

And I hope you remember when it comes around
The gentle of release of letting me down

And the way that it felt
To be high on yourself
Blindly running into the new

I haven't re-learned to walk
It's hard to learn that
And it wasn't the fall
It was the push in the back

I was always a step behind
I was always a step behind
I didn't see it coming up from behind
I was always a step behind
