Willie Nelson – One Step Beyond lyrics

I'm just one step before losin' you.
And I'm just one step ahead of the blues.
But I know that there's been pain an' misery.
Long before this old world had ever heard of me.
And I know it will hurt to see you go,
But we'll just add one more heartache to the score.
And though I still love you as before,
I'm just one step beyond carin' any more.
Instrumental break.
Bet that you're surprised that I could feel this way,
After stayin' home an' waitin' night and day.
For someone who cared so much for me,
You'd come home just long enough to laugh at me.
I don't know just when my feelin's changed,
I just know I could never feel the same,
And though I still love you as before,
I'm just one step beyond carin' any more.
