Bettye Lavette – Step Away lyrics
[Verse 1]
I been lied to, I been crossed
I been put upon and damn near lost
I been promised, I been fooled
I been deprived, but I been schooled

[Chorus]
So step away, take back your hand
I'm the only body here who can shake this thing
Shake it I will 'til it all falls down
I'm still standin' here
With my feet planted firmly on the ground

[Verse 2]
I'm a mom, I was a child
I was confused, I was almost sanctified
I been sanctioned, I been harrowed
I been revered and damn near swallowed

[Chorus]
Step away, take back your hand
I'm the only body here who can shake this thing
Shake it I will, 'til it all falls down
I'm still standin' here
With my feet planted firmly on the ground

[Bridge]
Was I gone too long?
Did I come on too strong?
Did I share too much?
Did I not care enough?
I'm just tryin', tryin'... To carry on

[Chorus]
