One Foot
Emile Haynie Lyrics


I'm standing in Brooklyn just waiting for something to happen
I can’t help but love thinking that everyone doesn’t get it
To my left there’s a window
Where did I go?
My reflection just planted two rows of coal
And bad ideas, but ideas nonetheless, and so

I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die
I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die


I happened to stumble upon a chapel last night
And I can’t help but back up when I think of what happens inside
I got friends locked in boxes, that's no way to live
What you're callin' a sin isn’t up to them
After all, (after all) I thought we were all your children,
But I will die for my own sins thanks a lot
We’ll rise up ourselves thanks for nothing at all,
So up off the ground up our forefathers are nothing but dust now

I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die
I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die

Maybe I should learn to shut my mouth
I am over twenty-five and I can’t make a name for myself some nights I break down and cry
I’m lucky that my father’s still alive he’s been fighting all his life
And if this is all I’ve ever known then may his soul live on forever in my song

I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die
I put one foot in front of the other one, oh oh oh
I don’t need a new love or a new life just a better place to die

In front of the other one
In front of the other one
Just a better place to die

I Provide Lyrics

I'm standing in Brooklyn just waiting for something to happen.
I can't help but love thinking that everyone doesn't get it.
To my left is a window.
Where did I go?
My reflection just blends in to rows of clothes
And bad ideas, but ideas nonetheless and so...

I'll put one foot in front of the other one.
I don't need a new love or a new life – just a better place to die.
I'll put one foot in front of the other one.
I don't need a new love or a new life – just a better place to die.

I happened to stumble upon a chapel last night.
And I can't help but back up when I think of what happens inside.
I got friends locked in boxes (That's no way to live).
What you're callin' a sin isn't up to them.
After all (after all), I thought we were all your children.

But I will die for my own sins – thanks a lot.
We'll rise up ourselves – thanks for nothing at all,
So up off the ground.
Our forefathers are nothing but dust now.

I'll put one foot in front of the other one.
I don't need a new love or a new life – just a better place to die.
I'll put one foot in front of the other one.
I don't need a new love or a new life – just a better place to die.

Maybe I should learn to shut my mouth.
I am over twenty-five and I can't make a name for myself.
Some nights I break down and cry.
I'm lucky that my father's still alive.
He's been fighting all his life.
And if this is all I've ever known
Then may his soul live on forever in my song.

I'll put one foot in front of the other one.
I don't need a new love or a new life – just a better place to die.
I'll put one foot in front of the other one.
I don't need a new love or a new life – just a better place to die.

In front of the other one.
In front of the other one.
Just a better place to die.

It's amazing hearing all the callbacks to The Format in Fun songs. This one makes sneaky references to She Doesn't Get It and On Your Porch.
