"One Degree Down" as written by and Karl Groom Richard West....
No sense in admitting I’m weary from the wait
No sense in pretending that I'm pressing on the gate
No power in a promise that I can find the cause
All it takes are a few mistakes, so how can I be sure?

What if I fall? What happens next?
What if my foundation was a thought out of context?
No power in a process that leaves me in the dark
So I'll just go with what I know - it's written on my heart
But though it's late in the day

[CHORUS] I know I'll find my way soon
Show me a place in the sun
‘Cause somewhere on the journey is the strength to go on
So let the dark fade, show me a break in the cloud
‘Cause every day I'm waiting brings me one degree down

No shame in admitting I feel a little scared
No sense in pretending that I'll know before I'm there
No power in a promise with no authority
All it takes are a few mistakes before I'm lost at sea
But though it's late in the day
[CHORUS]

I feel this inclination leading me to doubt my destination
I used up all my patience all the time I waited at the station
I don't want to break the sky
I'm not going to come back down
I don't want to lose my mind
I'm too far gone to turn back now
I can't avoid the feeling maybe all the signs could be misleading
With all my senses reeling when I saw my dreams all hit the ceiling
I don't want to break the sky
I'm not going to come back down
I don't want to lose my mind
I'm too far gone to turn back now
Can't turn back now

No need for reflecting on why it took so long
No need for rejecting this road I'm walking on
No point reminiscing on things I can't repair
All it takes are a few good breaks and suddenly I'm there
But though it's late in the day
[CHORUS]

Find my way soon
Show me a place in the sun
‘Cause somewhere on the journey is the strength to go on
So let the dark fade, show me a break in the cloud
‘Cause every day I'm waiting brings me one degree down
