“Take a Giant Step” Lyrics

Though you’ve played at love and lost
And sorrow’s turned your heart to frost
I will melt your heart again
Remember the feeling as a child
When you woke up and morning smiled
It’s time you felt like you did then

There’s just no percentage in remembering the past
It’s time you learned to live again at last
Come with me, leave yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind

You stare at me in disbelief
Say, “For you, there’s no relief”
But I swear I’ll prove you wrong
Don’t sit in your lonely room
Just staring back in silent gloom
That’s not where you belong

Come with me, I’ll take you where a taste of life is green
Each and every day holds wonders to be seen
Come with me, leave yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind

[break]

Come with me, I’ll take you where a taste of life is green
Each and every day holds wonders to be seen
Come with me, leave yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind
