Slip Slidin' Away

ŠPaul Simon, released on Greatest Hits, Etc., 1977

.

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 Dolores

I live in fear

My love for you's so overpowering

I'm afraid that I will disappear

.

Slip slidin' away

Slip slidin' away

You know the nearer your destination

The more you're 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

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

.

Slip slidin' away

Slip slidin' away

You know the nearer your destination

The more you're slip slidin' away

.

God only knows

God makes his plan

The information's unavailable

To the mortal man

We're working our jobs

Collect our pay

Believe we're gliding down the highway

When in 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

You know the nearer your destination

The more you're slip slidin' away

Mmm...
