  • What if you could go back and relive one day of your life all over again
    And unmake the mistake that left you a million miles away
    From the you, you once knew
    Now yesterday's shame keeps saying that you'll never get back on track
    But what if I told you

    You're one step away from surrender
    One step away from coming home, coming home
    One step from arms wide open
    His love has never let you go
    You're not alone
    You're one step away

    It doesn't matter how far you've gone
    Mercy says you don't have to keep running down the road you're on
    Love's never met a lost cause
    Your shame, lay it down
    Leave your ghosts in the past 'cause you know that you can't go back
    But you can turn around
    You've never been more than

    One step away from surrender
    One step away from coming home, coming home
    One step from arms wide open
    His love has never let you go
    You're not alone (not alone)
    You're one step away
    You're one step away

    Lay down, lay down your old chains
    Come now, and take up your new name
    Your best life up ahead now
    You're one step away

    Lay down, lay down your old chains
    Come now, and take up your new name
    Your best life up ahead now
    You're one step away

    Lay down, lay down your old chains
    Come now, and take up your new name
    Your best life up ahead now
    You're one step away

    So come on home, come on home
    One step from arms wide open
    His love has never let you go
    You're not alone (you're not alone)
    You're one step away

    Lay down, lay down your old chains
    Take up, take up your new name

    Lay down, lay down your old chains
    Take up, take up your new name

    Lay down, lay down your old chains
    Come now, take up your new name
    Your best life up ahead now
    One step away

    Lay down, lay down your old chains
    Come now, and take up your new name
    Your best life up ahead now
    You're just one step away Writer/s: BERNIE HERMS, JOHN MARK HALL, MATTHEW WEST
