Aqualung Lyrics

2. Slip-Sliding Away



Slip-sliding away, slip-sliding away
You know the nearer the destination 
The more you're slip-sliding away

And I know a man, he came from my home town
He wore this bad shirt 
For his woman like a thorny crown
He said, "Dolores, I live in fear"
"My love for you is so overpowering 
I'm afraid that I will disappear"

He's slip-sliding away, slip-sliding away
You know the nearer the destination 
The more you're slip-sliding away

And I know a woman, became a wife
These are the very words 
She uses to describe her life
She says, "A good day ain't got not rain"
She said, "A bad day is when I lie in bed 
And think of things that might've been"

She's slip-sliding away, slip-sliding away
You know the nearer the destination 
The more you're slip-sliding away
You're slip-sliding away, slip-sliding away
You know the nearer the destination 
The more you're slip-sliding away

Mmhmmm
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 
And he turned around and headed home again

He's slip-sliding, slip-sliding away
You know the nearer the destination 
The more you're slip-sliding away
Slip-sliding away, slip-sliding away
You know the nearer the destination 
The more you're slip-sliding away
