The Little Mermaid the Musical - One Step Closer Lyrics


"One Step Closer" is a song from the Broadway musical The Little Mermaid performed by Sean Palmer (Prince Eric). Music by Alan Menken and Lyrics by Glenn Slater.

Dancing is a language that is felt instead of heard
You can whisper, sing or shout without so much as a word
Try it, go on, like so...

Just let your emotions tell your body what to do
See how much a single gesture can reveal!
And ev'ry little step
Ev'ry single step
Is one step closer
To saying what you feel

Once the music hits you, inhibitions fall away
And you find that you're expressing things
Your voice daren't say
Don't be afraid, let go!

Soon as you surrender, what's inside will sweep on through
As the boundaries between us disappear!
And ev'ry little step
Ev'ry single step
Is one step closer
To talking loud and clear

A dance is like a conversation
Except you never need to make a sound
And once you've begun
You speak as one
Give and take
Back and forth
Round and round

A dance is like a conversation
Except your lips don't ever need to part
And once you've begun
You speak as one
Cheek to cheek
Toe to toe
Heart to heart

Dancing is a language that is felt instead of heard
But it says much more than language ever could
And ev'ry little step
Ev'ry single step
Is one step closer...
One step closer...
One step closer
To being understood
