    LYRICS

    VERSE 1
    When you wake and feel the day's already gone
    the sun is rising but your faith is going down
    and you’re losing hope a change gonna come
    you gotta tune your station to a higher sound

    PRE-CHORUS 1
    When the way seems blockaded,
    and you just don't have the might
    give some praise that you're frustrated
    You ain't wrong you're on the edge of something right

    CHORUS 1
    Take a small sweet step, give it all you got
    Just a small sweet step moving forward
    You don't know what's next, and nevertheless
    Take a small sweet step moving forward

    VERSE 2
    ​And when you're riding and the fog has got you blind
    remember you're the sky that holds the clouds
    Born with a hero's heart and a monkey mind, on the
    planet of commitment, there is no doubt

    PRE-CHORUS 2
    When the way seems blockaded,
    and you just don't have the might
    give some praise that you're frustrated
    You ain't wrong you're on the edge of something right

    CHORUS 2
    Take a small sweet step, give it all you got
    Just a small sweet step moving forward
    You don't know what's next, and nevertheless
    Take a small sweet step moving forward

    BRIDGE
    And you know you've got to be crazy,
    to look at the game and think you're OK
    you're in the very last minute of the very last play,
    scoreboard’s not on your side
    But inside your heart is a beat,
    it's the song on your tongue and the dance in your feet,
    You came here to bring to the game what you got,
    win or lose ain't never the prize!

    CHORUS 3
    You've got to take a small sweet step, give it all you got
    Just a small sweet step moving forward
    You don't know what's next, and nevertheless
    Take a small sweet step moving forward
    Take a small sweet step, give it all you got
    Just a small sweet step moving forward
    You don't know what's next, and nevertheless
    Take a small sweet step moving forward

    OUTRO
    Oooh… Just take a step… Oooh… Keep moving forward!
    Oooh… Just take a step… Oooh… Keep moving forward!
    Oooh… Just take a step… Oooh… Keep moving forward!
    Oooh… Just take a step… Oooh!
