Jack Johnson – One Step Ahead

Capo 4 with

VERSE
How can you be so certain that
You’re the one flirting with fire
If each choir needs preaching and everyone’s
Reaching into their pockets to see what they got
If not a lot has changed
But if everything’s changing
Blame to see you sin
But no one sees face-to-face or eye-to-eye
This is not how it has to end

PRE-CHORUS
Who wants to be one step ahead
And the first to the punchline?
Just one step ahead
First to the punchline

CHORUS
When it feels like it’s all closing in, mmm
All the linеs we won’t cross, we bend instеad
Never mind all the noise going through your head, oh
‘Cause every time we talk
We say the same things that we say
‘Cause you never mind all the noise going through your head

VERSE
How can I be so certain in my first impressions are mine?
If each morning I wake up with circles around me that say
“I got mine, I give in, I give up, it’s too much”
”Come one, let’s give ’em hell!”
“No, why not love?” you say
“Be too hard and that’s not enough in this house of cards”

PRE-CHORUS
Who wants to be one step ahead
And the first to the punchline?
Just one step ahead
First to the punchline

CHORUS
When it feels like it’s all closing in, mmm
All the lines we won’t cross, we bend instead
Never mind all the noise going through your head, oh
‘Cause every time we talk, we say the same things that we say
And every line we cross, we say the same things that we say
Every time we try
We play the same old games, it’s all been said
Now, never mind all the noise going through your head
