Joan Armatrading – Steppin' Out lyrics

I'm gonna step out of emotion
Break events that bring me down
I'm so uncertain
But it's my fault
For letting you distract me
There's trouble now
I'm on the edge
Steppin' Out
Steppin' Out
Step out of emotion
Steppin' out of love

I don't want no contradiction
Your navigation's gone haywire
Your little arrow
Oh it's missed your heart by miles
You better hide
Your self-satisfied smile
Cos I'm steppin' out
Steppin' out
Right out of devotion
Steppin' out of love

Steppin' out
Steppin' out
Steppin' out
Right out of commotion
Steppin' into life

I'm gonna give myself a promotion
Award myself a great big star
I'm not so certain
That I won't make that star a crown
Because I'm free
I'm alone with me
Steppin' out
Steppin' out
Right out of commotion
Steppin' into light
