The First Step (Is Taken On Your Own)
 

the first step (is taken on your own)

 

It doesn’t have to be perfect
It doesn’t have to be clean
It doesn’t have to be my final draft
It just has to be me

It doesn’t have to be genius
It’s not a battle to be won
The world doesn’t have to turn upside down
It just has to be done

So take a step
Roll the dice
Start the car and hit the gas
Curtain’s up
So start the show
Don’t let the moment pass

It doesn’t have to be forever
Nothing is etched in stone
Like a diver on the edge of the board
The first step is taken on your own

So take a step
Roll the dice
Start the car and hit the gas
Curtain’s up
So start the show
Don’t let the moment pass

Nothing’s further than tomorrow
And you’ve still got today to get through
The music’s changing every hour
And there’s no one to sing it but you
There’s no one to sing it but you

So take a step
Roll the dice
Close your eyes and count to three
No one’s here
To say “Let’s go!”
It just has to be me
It just has to be me
