One Step Behind (Paul OíBrien)

 

Every time I walk this city quay

Youíre on my mind

Every time I walk this city quay

Youíre just one step behind

 

Thereís always a river where Iím roaming

Always a tide to ebb and flow

They say, Iíll get used to your going

Times a healer, but I donít know

 

I wander through your books your photographs

From time to time

I wander through your books your photographs

Youíre just one page behind

 

Sometimes when I feel Iíve lost my way

Along these lanes that wind

Sometimes when I feel Iíve lost my way

I feel you close behind

 

Thereís always a river where Iím roaming

Always a tide to ebb and flow

They say, Iíll get used to your going

Times a healer, but I donít know

 

Sitting in a pub on Prospect Square

Just like before

Sitting beside an empty chair

With one eye on the door

 

Thereís always a river where Iím roaming

Always a tide to ebb and flow

They say, Iíll get used to your going

Times a healer, but I donít know

 

Every time I walk this city quay

Youíre on my mind

Every time I walk this city quay

Youíre just one step behind

 

 

Extra verse

(Every time I play that graveyard song

I feel you cast your eyes

Every time I play that graveyard song

Looking for the ones who cried)
