  • I remember way back, way back when
    I said I never wanna see your face again
    Cause you were loving, yes you're loving somebody else
    And I knew, oh yes, I knew I couldn't control myself

    And now they bring you back into my life again
    And so I put on a face just like your friends
    But I think you know, oh yes, you know what's going on
    Cause the feelings in me, oh yes, in me are burning strong

    But I will never be your stepping stone
    Take it all or leave me alone
    I will never be your stepping stone
    I'm standing upright on my own

    You used to call me up from time to time
    And it would be so hard for me not to cross the line
    The words of love lay on my lips just like a curse
    And I knew, oh yes, I knew they'd only make it worse

    And now you have the nerve to play along
    Just like the maestro beats in your song
    You got your kicks, you get your kicks from playing me
    And the less you give the more I want so foolishly

    But I will never be your stepping stone
    Take it all or leave me alone
    I will never be your stepping stone
    I'm standing upright on my own

    No, I will never be your stepping stone
    Take it all or leave me alone
    I will never be your stepping stone
    I'm standing upright on my own

    Never be your stepping stone
    Take it all or leave me alone
    I will never be your stepping stone
    I'm standing upright on my own Writer/s: AIMEE ANN DUFFY, ANDREW BOOKER STEPHEN
