The First Step

I can tie my own shoelaces
In three different ways
I don't mind the darkness
Or stumbling around in the haze
In a crowd I'm a riot
But when it comes to one on one
I'm all lost for words
At the first step

I might get married
In downtown Vegas
At the drive through
With the blessing of Elvis
She might be an old flame
Or a girl I just met
But that's where I stall
At the first step

I see you here
It's been ten years
We were just friends
I feared anything else
But now I've changed
The one you knew is dead
But still I falter
At the first step
