I love the syncopation in this song. It has a peppy feel to it, but the words have a dark side to them. This is a song that was inspired by being upset with a friend.

Cheryl hasn't said much about this song, but from the words it appears as if the other person overreacted to something, and the singer is getting along okay.

Cheryl has said this song is about a friend - it is not about her and Cathleen. Here is a live version of One Step at a Time on YouTube.
