I've seen the heart of darkness
Let's just say, I crossed over that line
Held hands with the hopeless
In too deep on that ride
Went around one more time

When you're standing on the edge
You don't look down till you're ready and willing to fly

Now I'm one step closer
With my arms open wide
Yeah, I'm one step closer
And I'm willing to try, this time

I hitched a ride with forgiveness
In that river of emotion, I went down, a third time
I spend the night with the living
Took a chance, looked inside
Didn't know who I'd find

Standing on the corner of the long goodbye
All alone and scared, I made up my mind

Yeah, I'm one step closer
With my arms open wide
Yeah, I'm one step closer
And I'm willing to try

I'm sick of giving up
Ooh, there's a little luck
I'm gonna get out of here

When you're standing on the edge
Don't look down till you're ready and willing to fly

I'm one step closer
With my arms open wide
Yeah, I'm one step closer
And I'm willing to try, yeah
I'm one step closer
Yeah, I'm one step closer
