One Step at a Time single 3000x3000.jpg

"'One Step at a Time' was written with my late partner, Ron Grant, a talented film and TV composer and an inspiration to work with. Ron and I wrote many songs together, but this ballad was one of our favorites - an anthem to two people persevering through adversity to search for their dreams.

We realized almost immediately the song had to be a duet, with the interplay of two voices and the plight of two people perusing a dream together. At the time, James Ingram ('Just Once') was one of my favorite singers, and we were fortunate to get his younger brother, Phillip Ingram, along with Andrea Robinson, to turn this into an uplifting ballad.

We always felt this would be a fitting
theme for an aspirational film – and I
still do. In the meantime, it has been
used as a theme song for 'Cinderella
on Ice,’ which toured internationally."

LYRIC

 

Who knows where we’re goin’
Or where the road will end
So many times we’ve had to stop
To start all over again
But even if we stumble along the way
Through the darkest night
Every dream’s in sight
With a single step each day

One step at a time
One step to keep from fallin’
One step at a time
And we’re almost there
Together we’ll find a way
Until that day just take it
One step at a time and we can make

Anything you wish for
All you got to do is try
There’s nothing that can stop you
If the feeling’s inside
There’s a way
If it’s straight from your heart
There’s a way
If you got a dream and a place to start

One step at a time
One step to keep from fallin’
One step at a time
And we’re almost there
Together we’ll find a place
If we just try and face it
One step at a time

A step at a time is all we need
We’re so much closer than before
And if we find love along the way
It’s love that opens up the door
Together we’ll find what we’ve been looking for

There’s a way
There’s a way
And we can make it if we take it
