Two Steps From The Blues (Bobby "Blue" Bland)

One month from the day I first met you Your promises proved to be untrue So step by step, I've been a fool Now I'm just two steps from the blues The reason we didn't get along Was telegrams and telephone One brings bad news, the other rendezvous That keeps me two steps from the blues Here is a chance to be loved or be lonely My heart awaits your call I know it's better to have loved and lost Than never have loved at all So, darling, let's try to make amends And if it should fail, let's try and try again Oh, it makes no difference what you say or do I'm so forgiving, I'm so forgiving And I can't go on living two steps from the blues
