Lyrics

The old church bell rings
And starlings flap their wings
Against the sun
Im running through
The dirty streets
Looking back, I turn
To shoot my gun
I almost made it
To the getaway car
But it was just one step too far

So I'm left here
With a pack of wolves
Trying to explain
What just went down
I was mentioning robin hood
He's not known in the
Neighborhood or town
And when I talked about
Little John in the bar
That's when I think I went
One step too far

I saw my life flash in front of me
That's not an easy thing to see

Later in the prison cell,
I'm so happy to be there
I don't mind they took my clothes,
Broke my nose, and cut my hair
But as I'm holding on to this iron bar
I'm wondering, did I take one step too far?

And I saw my life
Flash in front of me
That's not an easy thing to see

I saw my life flash in front of me
That's not an easy thing to see

One step too far
One step too far
One step too far
