The One Who Slipped Away
 

Took myself a ride in an automobile today
Down to the ocean overcast and gray
Had a look around at the real estate
Thought a little bit about the hand of fate
Canít forget the one who slipped away

I flew from Chicago in a silver airplane
Wind blowing hard through a dark and chilly rain
Wish i may wish i might
Make it to your bed tonight
Canít forget the one who slipped away

Canít forget the one who slipped away

Tucked in shadows somewhere out of time
Assassins lurk eternal in their crime
Waves of weeping willows flow
Down in the valley far below
Canít forget the one who slipped away

Well she could be most anywhere by now
In a parking lot or a billionaireís yacht luau
The golden glow of comfortsís door
Ainít shining around here much no more
Canít forget the one who slipped away

Canít forget the one who slipped away

Took myself a nap in the shade this afternoon
Woke up in a dream that was over way too soon
I remember something Ďbout the touch of grace
Feeliní a smile had crossed my face
Canít forget the one who slipped away

Wonít forget the one who slipped away
