I once had a love, a true and lasting love,
But the fool in me came out one night.
And with her loving eyes
she saw right through my eyes,
And she changed the night
I stepped across the line.

I should have watched that first step
It was a mighty big step
when I started steppin' out of line.
Though she's still lovin' me
it's not the way it used to be.
That first step did something to her mind.

I watched her slip away
a little more every day
And my conscience couldn't live
with all that pain.
She's growing colder since the day I told her
And the love we had will never be the same.

I should have watched that first step
It was a mighty big step
when I started steppin' out of line.
Though she's still lovin' me
it's not the way it used to be
That first step did something to her mind
That first step did something to her mind.
