Slip Sliding Away (Live) - Lyrics

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip sliding away

I know a man he came from my home town
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown
He said, "Delores I live in fear my love for you is so overpowering
I'm afraid that I will disappear"

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip sliding away

I know a woman became a wife
These are the very words she uses to describe her life
She said, "A good day ain't got no rain"
She said, "A bad day's when I lie in bed
And think of things that might have been"

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip sliding away

And I know a father who had a son
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he'd done
He came a long way just to explain
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
Then he turned around and headed home again

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip sliding away

God only knows, God makes his plan
The informations unavailable to the mortal man
We work our jobs collect our pay
Believe were gliding down the highway
When in fact were slip sliding away

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip sliding away

Slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip sliding away, mm
