Stepping Out

lyrics

I feel your hands closing, clenched around my throat.
Yeah your love’s been strangling me, and I’m now ‘bout to choke.
You been abusin’ and bruisin’ my ego for too long
Since I been bluesin’ I’ll cruise in and put it to you in a song

Baby, I heard you, it hurts you to find out
But I swear it’s fair.
And it’s time I let you know
You say don’t go
But I answer no—ohhh
I’m steppin’ out.

Soon as I stepped outside I knew it ain’t the same.
Sun gleamin’, chin up, smile beamin’—it’s a lovely day.
When we were foolin’ it was gruelin’, felt trapped in a tiny cage,
But now your lies unspoolin’ and I’m coolin’ off, heels up, far away

Through all our screw-ups, so rough, I stayed tough, blew up inside
Used to feel used up, now I’m juiced up and mighty fine, yeah
Our love’s been kicked out, back on the scene quick, with my clique now
So please don’t rock that slick pout, we both knew it wouldn't work out

Baby, I heard you, it hurts you to find out
But I swear it’s fair.
And it’s time I let you know
You say don’t go
But I answer no—ohhh
I’m steppin’ out.
