Ratt – One Step Away lyrics

# I waited for you baby on this hot summer night
I was so hot for ya, you were nowhere in sight
You thought I was foolin', So your heart took a flight
I guess we're star crossed lovers, We just can't get it right
Two years later I was out on the town
I saw you on the street and my heart hit the ground
I guess love is like a chain
And you're always bound
It's better late than never
Girl am I gettin through
It's better late than never
Than livin' without you
*I'm one step away
We're ships in the night but tonight
You ain't gonna get away
I'm one step away
The timing is right this time
And I'm gonna make you stay
One step away, One step away
I'm callin' on you baby like a blast from the past
I heard your heart was broken
I knew it wouldn't last
Some things go on forever
And some things burn out fast
It's better late than never
Girl am I gettin' through
It's better late than never
Than livin' without you
