Slip away.

Why are we standing here
Backs to the wall
Looking over our shoulders for
The meaning of it all ?

And what are we waiting for
Now the promise is done ?
Golden girls have vanished
And their lads are long, long gone.

But the sun still rises every day
The seasons turn and turn
The past just slips away
Let it slip away
Let it slip away

And what are we hoping for
Come the end of the day ?
Will we go with a whimper
Behaving as the wind behaves?

On no ! I've had enough of
Leaving the future behind
I'm going to take a leap in the dark
And into the sunshine

Oh the sun still rises every day
The seasons turn and turn
The past just slips away
Let it slip away
Let it slip away
