"One Step Behind" as written by and Patrick John Judge Ryan Curtis Clark....
Cadence
Breathe out the line into the soil below
I'm one step, one step behind
And I will carry you home

Fearless
Open your eyes to learn
To feel the rising sea
Hear me
Don't let them in
To waste away your everything

When the loneliness ends
Will the panic begin?
I never know
Are we ever the same
All we need is a way
Where do we go?

Breathe in, breathe out the light
And leave your shadow behind
For this day your pain is mine
So let me carry the weight

Father
Forevermore
In dark, in light, remember me
Searching
Find in the name
The truth, the right, and take the lead

When the loneliness ends
Will the panic begin?
I never know
Are we ever the same
All we need is a way
Where do we go?
When the loneliness ends
Will the panic begin?
I never know
Are we ever the same
All we need is a way
Where do we go?
Where do we go?

When the loneliness ends
Will the panic begin?
I never know
Are we ever the same
All we need is a way
Where do we go? (Where do we go?)
When the loneliness ends
Will the panic begin?
I never know
Are we ever the same
All we need is a way
Where do we go? (Where do we go?)

    Song MeaningBehind the Song:
    Ryan Clark:
    “In the midst of writing this record, my wife and I had our first child. We named her Ryan after myself. This song is for her.

    It’s true what they say: Nothing can truly prepare you for parenthood. It is, on one hand, a simultaneous demand of everything you’ve learned in life – patience, understanding, fear, doubt, trust, faith, sympathy, hope, frustration, joy, etc., and on the other hand, unlike anything you’ve experienced before.

    Bringing a child into the world in this day and age can be terrifying. I’ve seen just how much the world has changed since I was young, and it’s easy to be fearful for the years to come. I wrote this song to encourage her, to caution her, and to let her know that I’m always close."
