LYRICS

VERSE 1
When you wake and feel the day’s already gone
the sun is rising but your faith is going down
and you’re losing hope a change gonna come
you gotta tune your station to a higher sound

PRE-CHORUS 1
When the way seems blockaded,
and you just don’t have the might
give some praise that you’re frustrated
You ain’t wrong you’re on the edge of something right

CHORUS 1
Take a small sweet step, give it all you got
Just a small sweet step moving forward
You don’t know what’s next, and nevertheless
Take a small sweet step moving forward

VERSE 2
​And when you’re riding and the fog has got you blind
remember you’re the sky that holds the clouds
Born with a hero’s heart and a monkey mind, on the
planet of commitment, there is no doubt

PRE-CHORUS 2
When the way seems blockaded,
and you just don’t have the might
give some praise that you’re frustrated
You ain’t wrong you’re on the edge of something right

CHORUS 2
Take a small sweet step, give it all you got
Just a small sweet step moving forward
You don’t know what’s next, and nevertheless
Take a small sweet step moving forward

BRIDGE
And you know you’ve got to be crazy,
to look at the game and think you’re OK
you’re in the very last minute of the very last play,
scoreboard’s not on your side
But inside your heart is a beat,
it’s the song on your tongue and the dance in your feet,
You came here to bring to the game what you got,
win or lose ain’t never the prize!

CHORUS 3
You’ve got to take a small sweet step, give it all you got
Just a small sweet step moving forward
You don’t know what’s next, and nevertheless
Take a small sweet step moving forward
Take a small sweet step, give it all you got
Just a small sweet step moving forward
You don’t know what’s next, and nevertheless
Take a small sweet step moving forward

OUTRO
Oooh… Just take a step… Oooh… Keep moving forward!
Oooh… Just take a step… Oooh… Keep moving forward!
Oooh… Just take a step… Oooh… Keep moving forward!
Oooh… Just take a step… Oooh!
