Slip slidin' awaySlip slidin' awayYou know the nearer your destinationThe more you're slip slidin' awayI know a man, he came from my home townHe wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crownHe said "Delores, I live in fearMy love for you is so overpoweringI'm afraid that I will disappear"Slip slidin' awaySlip slidin' awayYou know the nearer your destinationThe more you're slip slidin' awayI know a woman, became a wifeThese are the very words she uses to describe her lifeShe said "A good day ain't got not rain"She said "A bad day's when I lie in bedAnd I think of things that might have been"Slip slidin' awaySlip slidin' awayYou know the nearer your destinationThe more you're slip slidin' awayAnd I know a father who had a sonHe longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he had doneHe came a long way just to explainHe kissed his boy as he lay sleepingThen he turned around and he headed home againSlip slidin' awaySlip slidin' awayYou know the nearer your destinationThe more you're slip slidin' awayGod only knows, God makes his planThe information's unavailable to the mortal manWe're working our jobs, collect our payBelieve we're gliding down the highwayWhen in fact we're slip slidin' awaySlip slidin' awaySlip slidin' awayYou know the nearer your destinationThe more you're slip slidin' awaySlip slidin' awaySlip slidin' awayYou know the nearer your destinationThe more you're slip slidin' away
