(Footsteps)

[Verse 1]
Hurry up and wait
So close, but so far away
Everything that you've always dreamed of
Close enough for you to taste
But you just can't touch

[Bridge]
You wanna show the world, but no one knows your name yet
Wonder when and where and how you're gonna make it
You know you can if you get the chance
In your face and the door keeps slamming
Now you're feeling more and more frustrated
And you're getting all kind of impatient waiting
We live and we learn to take

[Chorus]
One step at a time
There's no need to rush
It's like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It's gonna happen when it's
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

[Verse 2]
You believe and you doubt
You're confused, you got it all figured out
Everything that you always wished for
Could be yours, should be yours, would be yours
If they only knew

[Bridge]
You wanna show the world, but no one knows your name yet
Wonder when and where and how you're gonna make it
You know you can if you get the chance
In your face and the door keeps slamming
Now you're feeling more and more frustrated
And you're getting all kind of impatient waiting
We live and we learn to take

[Chorus]
One step at a time
There's no need to rush
It's like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It's gonna happen when it's
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

[Verse 3]
When you can't wait any longer
But there's no end in sight
It's the faith that makes you stronger
The only way we get there
Is one step at a time

[Chorus]
Take one step at a time
There's no need to rush
It's like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It's gonna happen when it's
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

[Chorus]
One step at a time
There's no need to rush
It's like learning to fly
Or falling in love
It's gonna happen when it's
Supposed to happen that we
Find the reasons why
One step at a time

    Ummm. Idk what question ur asking! But I love this song more thann anythiing! Its soo kool! Its about wanting something sooo much that you want to get there soo fast but you can't, so you have to take just one step at a time to get there. It takes you some time to get what you want. Trust me. I know!

    I really do absolutely love this song
    I just heard on the radio and I was like
    Oh mi gosh I gotta find it
    so yeah but its such a great message
    and it taught me a lot to just take small steps and deal with things as they come.

    When you can't wait any longer
    But there's no end in sight
    When you need to find the strength
    It's the faith that makes you stronger
    The only way we get there
    Is one step at a time.

    This means that if you feel like your giving up just find a strength cos its the only way that makes you stronger, and the first way to do it is one step at a time, it will not hapen as fast as you want it just hapen slowly until you get what you always wanted.

    Jordin sparks I realy like all the meaning of your songs.

    Just remember: "Slowly but surely.." just like in a text message.
    Love may take long but it will always take you to where you belong. Just hold on and enjoy the journey, no need to hurry coz your heart will know when you're finally home. Learn to trust the perfect time so that you may discover it's purpose. Char!
