  • Well, there's a bridge
    And there's a river
    That I still must cross
    As I'm going on my journey
    Oh, I might be lost

    And there's a road I have to follow
    A place I have to go
    Well, no one told me just how to get there
    But when I get there I'll know
    'Cause I'm taking it

    Step by step
    Bit by bit
    Stone by stone (yeah)
    Brick by brick (oh yeah)
    Step by step
    Day by day
    Mile by mile (ooh, ooh, ooh)

    And this old road is rough and ruined
    So many dangers along the way
    So many burdens might fall upon me
    So many troubles that I have to face

    Oh, but I won't let my spirit fail me
    Oh, I won't let my spirit go
    Until I get to my destination
    I'm gonna take it slow
    Because I'm making it mine

    Step by step (you know I'm taking it)
    Bit by bit (bit by bit, come move)
    Stone by stone (yeah)
    Brick by brick (brick by brick by brick by brick, mmm)
    Step by step (step by step, I'm gonna)
    Day by day (day by day)
    Mile by mile (ooh), go your way, go your way

    Say it, baby, don't give up
    You've got to hold on to what you got
    Oh, baby, don't give up
    You've got to keep on moving on, don't stop (yeah, yeah)
    I know you're hurting (I know you're hurting)
    And I know you're blue (I know you're blue)
    I know you're hurting (I know you're hurting)
    But don't let the bad things get to you

    I'm taking it step by step (oh, oh, oh, oh)
    Bit by bit (bit by bit, come move)
    Stone by stone (stone by stone, yeah)
    Brick by brick (brick by brick by brick by brick)
    Step by step (I'm gonna take it now)
    Day by day (day by day)
    Mile by mile (ooh), go your own way, go your own way

    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (I'm taking it step by step) Bit by bit
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    Stone by stone (yeah, stone by stone), brick by brick
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    Come on, baby
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    Step by step keep on moving, day by day (day by day-ee)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    Mile by mile by mile by mile, go your own way
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
    (Come on, baby, got to keep moving)
