Song Spotlight: “One Step Up” – Bruce Springsteen

IT’S A CHALLENGE to find a song that better documents the demise of a relationship than Bruce Springsteen’s One Step Up. It’s a challenge for me not to think of the demise of relationships every time I hear this song.

So simple, so minimal, yet so accurate and so heavy:

We’ve given each other some hard lessons lately
But we ain’t learnin’
We’re the same sad story that’s a fact
One step up and two steps back
