Slip Slidin' Away - Paul Simon

Slip Slidin' Away
Slip Slidinn'Away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're slip slidin' away

I know a man
He came from my hometown
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown
He said "Delores, I live in fear,
My love for you so overpowering I'm afraid that I will dissappear."

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

And 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 is when I lie in bed and think of things that might have been"

Slip slidin' away
Slip slidin' away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you're 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

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

And God only knows
And 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 if fact we're slip slidin' away

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

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