One Step Ahead
Words and Music by Dottie Burman

Chorus:
I'm stayin' one step ahead of
That lonely feelin'.
Doin' things to keep me runnin' free.
One step ahead! One step ahead!
But that loneliness keeps catchin' up on me.

Sunday mornin' dawnin', I'm up early with the sun.
Read the latest papers, then I get some dreamin' done.
Listen to the radio or watchin' the T.V.
But that loneliness keeps catchin' up on me.

Sunday noon and soon I'll go out walkin' all alone.
There are lots of friends that I can talk to on the phone.
When the talkin's over I know how it's gonna be
'Cause that loneliness keeps catchin' up on me.

Chorus

Sunday night the light is fading from my quiet room.
Writing songs and writing poems to chase away the gloom.
Sittin' with my dreams of you, they keep me company
When that loneliness tries catchin' up on me.

Chorus

I'm stayin' one step ahead of
That lonely feelin'.
Doin' things to keep me runnin' free.
One step ahead! One step ahead!
But that loneliness keeps catchin' up on me.
I'm stayin' One step ahead! One step ahead!
But that loneliness keeps catchin' up on me.
