Duffy – Stepping Stone lyrics
[Verse:]
I rememeber way back way back when
I said I never wanna see your face again
Cause you were loving yes you were loving somebody else
And I knew oh yes I knew I couldn't control myself
And now they bring you back into my life again
And so I put on a face just like your friends
But I think you know oh yes you know what's going on
Cause the feelings in me oh yes in me are burning strong

[Chorus:]

But I will never be your stepping stone
Take it all or leave me alone
I will never be your stepping stone
I'm standing upright on my own

[Verse 2:]
You used call me up from time to time
And it would be so hard for me not to cross the line
The words of love lay on my lips just like a curse
And I knew oh yes I knew they'd only make it worse
And now you have the nerve to play along
Just like the mistro beats in your song
You get your kicks you get your kicks from playing me
And the less you give the more I want so foolishly

[Chorus:]
But I will never be your stepping stone
Take it all or leave me alone
I will never be your stepping stone
I'm standing upright on my own...

No I will never be your stepping stone
Take it all or leave me alone
I will never be your stepping stone
I'm standing upright on my own

Never be your stepping stone
Take it all or leave me alone
I will never be your stepping stone
I'm standing upright on my own

    I relate this song to volcano by damien rice, because for me, they have the very same meaning. It's about that time when you fall in love and realise that you're just a phase for the other one, you're the second option, you're the back-up plan. "i will never be your stepping stone" but. "the less you give , the more i want so foolishly", here's the part when she underlines the inner fights one can have while dealing with such a situation. Because she is in love with him, but he draws her happiness around a thin line of what may be/might have been.
