SLIP AWAY
by Samantha Elin

Are you keeping a list of the bad I’ve done?
Do you carry it around, I bet it weighs a ton
Has it weathered with age or faded from the sun
And do you read it like a Bible or memorize it for fun

Chorus
When it comes to the wrongs I’ve done
You remember each and every one
Sweet memories slip away ‘til there are none

You talk on and on ‘bout the lies I’ve strung
Tell all your friends the tales I’ve spun
At night you dream dark dreams of the tears I’ve brung
And you can count the times, the times I’ve almost run

Chorus
But when it comes to the love I’ve sung
You forget the words one by one
When the radio plays our song, you can only hum

Well, I wish I could forget, make my heart numb
Whisper goodbye, so long hon
Then I see a picture of you when we were young
Your graceful arms around our only son

Chorus
When it comes to the wrongs I’ve done
You remember each and every one
Sweet memories slip away ‘til there are none
But when it comes to the love I’ve sung
You forget the words one by one
When the radio plays our song, you won’t even hum
