Go Back

The Next Step Is Love

Words & Music by Paul Evans, Paul Parnes

Lyrics:

Yesterday, I slipped away
The sun is welcoming the evening shadows
On a perfect day and the next step is love
The next step is love

We walked barefoot through the misty meadows
Laughing at eacht other in the rain
Made some faces at some people in the park
Didn't bother to explain
Fun, fun, look at us run
Going nowhere special really fast
But we've yet to taste the icing on the cake
That we've been baking with the past

And the next step is love
So what are we waiting for?
The next step is love
Girl, it's for sure

Love will be a place to run to
From the world they've built to you and me
We'll be closer than we've ever been
Though looking back it's so hard to believe
Hang it all out or bring it all in
The best we've picked upon the way tonight
Changes are coming but together
We can make it through somehow

Yes the next step is love

More info:

Elvis recorded The Next Step is Love on June 7, 1970, at RCA's Nashville studios. The song was written by Paul Evans and Paul Parnes. In the 1970 documentary Elvis - That's The Way It Is, Elvis was seen rehearsing The Next Step is Love at MGM in preparation for his up coming Las Vegas engagement. The version on the soundtrack album, however, is the studio recording. His single release spent nine weeks on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, peaking at #32. It fared better on the Easy-Listening chart (#5, 10 weeks). A six-week stay on the country chart resulted in a top position of #57.
