one step at a time
with beats of melodies
and warmth of love
we dance the dance of life

one step at a time
with patience in every stride
and passion as the guide
we dance the dance of life

one step at a time
stumbling on struggles
and courage turns the tide
we dance the dance of life

one step at a time
when stress is immense
yet belief remains the strength
we dance the dance of life

one step at a time
after each fall
learning to rise
we dance the dance of life
