One Step Lyrics

(Hey, mister, hey mister)

A world

(Hey, mister, hey mister)
(Hey, mister, hey mister)

I've got my world
Why should I think about the rain falling?
Inside lookin' outside
Tryin' to put one foot in Eden (Eden, Eden)

Come stay, you stay
Try looking sideways, try looking other ways
Imagine how I must be feeling
And each time I pray
I wonder which way I should be meaning

(Hey, mister, hey mister)
One step
One step away from you
I'm only one step
One step away from you

Hold on a minute!
Here comes the real world, I need it (Need it)
Say, I been sitting outside
So long, looking in it

Here comes the biggest world
The biggest world I've ever seen
Say, no need to tell me that
'Cause I know, 'cause I know
'Cause I know where I've been

(Hey, mister, hey mister)
One step
One step away from you (In the biggest world)
I'm only one step
One step away from you

Imagine how I must be feeling

One step
One step away from you
I'm only one step
One step away from you

I've got my world
Why should I think about the rain falling?

(Hey, mister, hey mister)

Try looking sideways, try looking other ways
Imagine how I must be feeling
Mmm, the world is reeling

(Ooohooo...)

I'll be waiting for you
I'll be waiting so long
Waiting for someone to tell me
What's going on (Oho, yeah)

Why should I think about the rain?
Why should I think about the rain falling?
Why should I think about the rain?
Why should I think about the rain falling?

(Hey, mister, hey mister)
One step (in my mind)
One step away from you (In the biggest world)
I'm only one step
One step away from you

One step (in my mind)
One step away from you
I'm only one step
One step away from you

(I can't find)
One step (in my mind)
One step away from you

(I can't find)
One step (in my mind)
One step away from you...

Kissing the Pink is a dance/synth pop group from Scotland and England. Members included Nick Whitecross, John Hall, George Stewart, Josephine Wells, Pete Barnett, Sylvia Griffin, Simon Aldridge and Steve Cusack. Their first single was "Don't hide in the shadows", made with Martin Hannett, but it wasn't until they changed managers and signed with Magnet Records that they began to get any airplay. They recorded their first album in AIR studios with producer Colin Thurston, who had engineered Bowie's Heroes and later worked with Duran Duran amongst others. Kissing the Pink had wanted Brian Eno to produce the album but Magnet thought Thurston would make a more commercial impact. After a series of near-misses with tracks off the upcoming album the single "last film", with its memorable whistling, reached the top 20. The album, Naked, didn't sell a lot of copies but was a favourite with the college crowd who presumably appreciated its intelligence and wit. Most people when they talk of Naked marvel at the sheer variety of songs on the album, and while this may be its abiding strength, at the time it probably made the album too hard to classify, and thus it was largely ignored.

Their first Hot 100 entry was "Maybe This Day," which hit #87 in 1983 In 1985 following the departure by some of the members they shortened their name to KTP and began having hits on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. The most successful was "Certain Things Are Likely," which spent three weeks at #1 in 1987. That song also became their second Hot 100 entry when it peaked at #97 later that year. From the same album "One Step" was the biggest selling single in Italy that year. When they were given an award on an Italian television show they mistook it for an ashtray.

During the late 1980s their music became even more club friendly and by the end of the decade they had recorded several albums'worth of music that broke new ground in up and coming dance genres. While their pursuit of the avant garde through experiments with form, sound, and equipment, pushed their music into many new areas, the neo-pagan rave scene of 90s Britain also gave their lyrics a mystical flavour, with such sessions as the Ascendant Masters, Jon Hall's Techno-Shamnic Ritual, and the Dalai Lama tracks, using synthesizers and filters along with frequently furious rhthyms to hypnotise the listener.

The band are to feature on four tracks on the new X-Press 2 album Makeshift Feelgood, alongside Tim DeLaughter, Kurt Wagner and Rob Harvey from The Music
