A Step Too Far Lyrics

by Elton John

It's so strange he doesn't show me more affection than he needs
Almost formal, too respectful, never takes romantic leads
There are times when I imagine I'm not always on his mind
He's not thinking what I'm thinking, always half a step behind
Always half a step behind

I'm in every kind of trouble, can't you tell, just look at me
Half ecstatic, half dejected, all in all I'm all at sea
Easy terms I thought I wanted, fill me now with chilling dread
You can never know the chaos, of a life turned on it's head
Of a life turned on it's head

I am certain that I love him but a love can be misplaced
Have I compromised my people in my passion and my haste?
I could be his life companion, anywhere but where we are
Am I a leader? Am I a traitor? Did I take a step to far?
Did I take a step to far?

Did I take a step to far?

I am certain that I love him but a love can be misplaced
Did I take a step to far?
So strange he doesn't show me more affection than he needs
Did I take a step to far?

I am certain that I love him but a love can be misplaced
Did I take a step to far?
