I'm sitting in my bedroom
Overlooking Findhorn Bay
Cluny Hill inn the distance
Summer on the way
Blue skies and sailing boats
Like a picture in a book
I can't believe I got here
Or how long it took
Living one step at a time
Putting one foot in front of the other
It sure feels right
Healing on my mind
Been a long way
Been a long way to the light
I'd made it to Manhattan
Built myself a nest
I meant to get right back to doing
Exactly what I do best
Pluggin' in an electric guitar
Leading a band
Well, if you want to give God a laugh
Tell him your plans!
Summer in the city
Wilting in the heat
Buzzing up and down to Bearsville
And back to Hudson Street
I learned meditation
And how to visualize
Just breathing, being still
Never felt more alive!
Living one step at a time...
I spent the fall in transit
Circling the moon
Like a cat on a hot tin roof
Like a fiddle without a tune
I found what I was searching for
In Mrs Caddy's book
I had to go there straightaway
Have myself a look
I flew back to Scotland
Anticipation in my bones
The old country welcoming me
Like a prodigal coming home
I knelt and kissed the tarmac
In the wild Atlantic rain
Felt the fiery Gaelic blood
Rising in my veins
Living one step at a time...
I spent the night in Glasgow
Flew to Inverness
I found the place and at the first
I was not impressed
Nobody said hello
The faces left me cold
Back then how was I to know
All that would unfold?
I entered the Sanctuary
Heard the voice of a girl
Sending out a circle of light
Clear across the world
I shuddered in the Power
Like a seedling in a storm
I've been traveling to this place
Since the moment I was born
Flew back to New York City
Singing the big city blues
The sand of Findhorn Bay
Still clingin' to my shoes
I tried to re-start my life
But the life I knew was gone
I had to let go everything
But that's another song!
Living one step at a time...
So I'm sitting in my bedroom
Overlooking Findhorn Bay
Cluny Hill in the distance
Summer on the way
I'm watching sailing boats
Bobbing to and fro
Time to hit the road
The only way I know...
Living one step at a time...
