One Step Out Of Time was the United Kingdom entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1992 in Malmö performed by Michael Ball.

The song was a mid-tempo ballad, relating the singer's comfort with being "one step out of time" in relation to rejecting the reality around him, instead pining after his former lover. Not accepting that his relationship is over, and spurning the disapproval of his friends, he wishes to put "his love on the line" one more time, imploring his former lover to just let him know what he had done wrong.

The song was performed sixteenth on the night following Austria and preceding Ireland. At the close of voting, it finished in 2nd place with 139 points in spite of being the pre-contest favorite.

Lyrics

(One step out of time)
Ooh yeah...

Another week, another day
When I call you're miles away
In the arms of another
All my friends say I'm crazy
Night after night I'm waiting
You say that I'm wrong
Then you tell me that I'm coming on too strong

One step out of time
One reason to put this love on the line again
Can't believe that it's true
Now I'm one step out of time

(One step, one step out of time)
(One step, one step out of time)

When I sleep I dream of you
You're in my mind in everything I do
Well, I still don't feel it's over
I know what's right
I could be with you holding you tight
Now that you're gone
Won't you tell me where I've been going wrong?

One step out of time
One reason to put this love on the line again
Can't believe that it's true
Now I'm one step out of time

Don't walk away, just let your heart
Decide that love is gonna stay
I know it's right, just think about it
Girl, ooh... for a while

Another week, another day
When I call you're miles away
And I still don't feel that it's over

(One step out of time)
One reason to put this love on the line
Oh... again
Can't believe that it's true
Now I'm one step out of time

(One step, one step out of time)
(One step, one step out of time)
One step, one step out of time
One step out of time
