Slippery Slope

Slippery Slope

The kids are all grown up
And out on their own
The house seems so empty
And she feels so alone

She thinks there is
Much more to life than this

He says he still loves her
She wonders if he does
He goes through the motions
But that’s just not enough

She feels so young
She wants to love someone

Chorus:
She’s never thought of herself
As the leaving kind
But loneliness is driving her
Right out of her mind
Straight to some places
She never thought she’d go
She’s standing on the edge of
A slippery slope

She can still turn a head
Every now and then
She’d trade it all away
To feel his touch again

She starts to cry
She knows she’s lost his eye

He wouldn’t notice her
Walking out the door
She was afraid to leave
She’s not scared anymore

She thinks there is
Much more to life than this

Chorus:
She’s never thought of herself
As the leaving kind
But loneliness is driving her
Right out of her mind
Straight to some places
She never thought she’d go
She’s standing on the edge of
A slippery slope
