Such A Short Step   (words and music by Bill Pere)

 

She comes in from the cold, sits down by the fire, and dries her eyes
Quiet, alone, the crackle asks her why she cries
But her tale remains untold
She fears she'll find the glowing fire dies

He sits in the park, under a tree, a lonely stray
Autumn's leaves ask him what he has to say
But his tale remains untold
He fears all the leaves will blow away

   But how're they gonna know how smooth is the landing
   How warm is the water unless they put a hand in
   Maybe they will find the distance they have spanned in
   Such a short step is more than they thought...

They climb the hill but never reach for the sky
The rippling water trickles by and asks them why
But their tale remains untold
They fear the stream will soon run dry

   But how're they gonna know how smooth is the landing
   How warm is the water unless they put a hand in
   Maybe they will find the distance they have spanned in
   Such a short step is more than they thought...
