I Can’t Wait Until I See My Baby’s Face

length: 2:26
producer: Clyde Otis
writer: Chip Taylor, Jerry Ragovoy

I can't wait until I see my, my baby's face
When I tell him that I'm through
Yes, I'm through with him
'Cause he's been running round
And I got to, to put him down
I can't wait to see the look
The look in his eyes

I wonder if he'll cry
When I tell him this is goodbye, yes it is
Or will he try to change my mind
And make me stay? yeah

Or will he turn around
And, with a smile on his face
Just walk away?
Just walk away

I can't wait until I see my, my baby's face
Gotta find out what I mean
What I mean to him
'Cause just one tear is all he's
got to, to shed for me
And I know that l will run, yes I'll run to him
I'll hold him tight
Never, never let him go, no-o-o

And I can't wait until I see my, my baby's face
You know, I just can't wait until I
see my baby's, baby's face
You know, I just can't wait until
I see my, my baby's face
I can't wait until I

One Step Ahead

length: 2:36
producer: Clyde Otis
writer: Eddie Snyder, Charles Singleton
I'm only one step ahead of heartbreak
One step ahead of misery
One step is all I have to take
Backwards, to be the same old fool for you
I used to be
I'm only one step ahead of your arms
One kiss away from your sweet lips
I know I can't afford to stop for one moment
'Cause I'm just out of reach of your fingertips
Your warm breath on my shoulder

Keeps reminding me
That it's too soon to forget you
It's too late to be free, can't you see?
I'm only one step ahead of your love
I try and yet I can't take two
Seems like I'll have to take that one step backwards
'Cause one step ahead is a step too far away from you.
'Cause one step ahead is a step too far away from you.
Just one step ahead is a step too far away from you.
