Slip sliding away, slip sliding away, you know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away. . .
And I know a man, he came from my hometown, 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." I know a woman, who 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 is when I lie in the bed and I think of things that might have been." And I know a father who had a son. he longed to tell him all the reasons for the things hed done; he came a long way just to explain, he kissed his boy as he lay sleeping, then he turned around and he headed home again. God only knows, God makes his plan, the information's unavailable to the mortal man; we're workin' 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 slip sliding away. . ..
