"Next Step" is an unreleased song by Big Time Rush. A demo recorded by Kendall Schmidt and Logan Henderson was unofficially released online in 2013, shortly after the release of the band's third studio album, 24/seven.

The song was likely written by Schmidt and Henderson along with professional songwriters Matthew Thiessen and Brian Lee. A tweet by Henderson from November 2012, when material was being written for the album, references the lyrics to "Next Step" while tagging the other three, all of whom worked on other tracks for 24/seven.[1]

Lyrics[]

Step one, we were just two friends having fun
Step two, couldn't take my mind off of you
Step three, is when you put your arms around me
Step four, we weren't just friends anymore
When you look my way, nothing left to say
Just the way that I feel
It's all I can do
Not to touch your lips, not to kiss your face
Nothing left to say

Chorus:
Let's take it to the next step
'Cause we've never been there before
Let's take it to the next step
'Cause my heart can't take any more

Step five, is when I left those tears in your eyes
Step six, I don't even know what I did
Step seven, happened when I walked out the door
Step eight, we aren't even friends anymore
When you look my way, nothing left to say
Just the way that I feel
It's all I can do
Not to touch your lips, not to kiss your face
Nothing left to say

Chorus

Let's take it to the next step
For better or let it go
Let's take it to the next step
Or never, ever know

When you look my way, nothing left to say
Just the way that I feel
It's all I can do
Not to touch your lips, not to kiss your face
Nothing left to say

Chorus

Let's take it to the next step
For better or let it go
Let's take it to the next step
Or never, ever know
