Steps

What The Future Holds lyrics

One more teardrop, the surface tension breaks
And if the surface tension breaks
Then I will pour my pain and more
Then my heart stops, what will it take?
'Cos if breaks, if it breaks
'Cos if it does I'll turn to dust

One foot in the past and one foot in the future
I need to take a class on staying right here with you

I'm drowning in my history
Prisoner of past defeats
Tell me what the future holds, tell me baby
I'm terrified of things to come
Paralysed, I cannot run
Tell me what the future holds, tell me baby

(Verse cut on radio edit)
Bound and faithless, I turn to you
Pray you'll help me through
Pray you'll help me through
I'm on my knees, can you help me?

Stuck in quicksand, I think of us
I think of us in my mirage, I can't get out
And I'm scared now

One foot in the past and one foot in the future
I need to take a class on staying right here with you

I'm drowning in my history
Prisoner of past defeats
Tell me what the future holds, tell me baby

So kiss me 'til the break of dawn
And I will lie here in your arms
And I will try to live tonight like it's the last day of my life
'Cos I love you baby
Please save me from my mind

I'm drowning in my history
Prisoner of past defeat
Tell me what the future holds, tell me baby
I'm terrified of things to come
Paralysed, I cannot run
Tell me what the future holds, tell me baby
