Slip Slidin' Away

Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' 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's so overpowering
I'm afraid that I will disappear

Slip slidin' 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 slidin' 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 slidin' away...

God only knows, God makes his plan
The information's unavailable to the mortal man
We work our jobs, collect our pay
Believe we're gliding down the highway
When in fact we're slip slidin' away

Slip slidin' away...
