Slip Slidin' Away (Demo Version) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away
Verse 2
I know a man
He came from my home town
He wore his passion for his woman
Like a thorny crown
He said Dolores
I live in fear
My love for you's so overpowering
I'm afraid that I will disappear
Verse 3
Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away
Verse 6
I know a father
He 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
Verse 7
Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away
Verse 8
God only knows
God makes his plans
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
Verse 9
Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away
Verse 10
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away
Verse 11
