Download contains:  Piano-vocal score, lyric sheet, mp3 demo & backing tracks

Content  -  A gentle, uplifting song about resolving conflict and forgiveness. Often the first step can be the hardest when it comes to tackling problems, or forgetting the past and moving on.  The optional harmony and counterpoint parts make this a lovely song for junior choir, as well as general singing.


Lyrics sample

One step closer,

It may be hard to make,

(One step closer, one step closer)

But try a word, a friendly hand,

Some give and take,

(One step closer)

And then you’ll understand:

It’s quite surprising what a difference

Follows just one step.
