"5 Steps" as written by James E Green, Tamir Ruffin and Wendy Miller....
I don't know how much longer
You're going to be here
So I say my prayers
Every night

One for my mother
One for my father
And one for the love of my life

So if you decide to leave today
Then leave tomorrow at the door
And take only
Half of yesterday
And Forget all hope for the present
Cause it just went away

[Chorus]
We were 5 steps
From eternity
We were 4 steps
4 steps past love
And 3 wishes
3 wishes from
Touching the heavens above

Another day is gone
Another night now dawn
Waiting patiently hoping you'll return
But not before long

Why did you say goodbye
I still feel your presence
In my bed at night

And what was reality once
A love True in form
Has now added pain
For a man scorn

Forced to wear the memories of pain
Around an empty heart

Now I sit in silence and begin to think
As laughter echoes through the air
I can't get you off my mind
But a whole new love
I could never bare

So now I lay
Me down to sleep
And I pray my Lord my soul to keep
And if I die, before I wake
Then I promise I'll be there for you always

[Chorus: x 4]
