SHE SLIPPED AWAY

Words and music by Cole Tyler Hottenrott

In and of his time, nothing remains. 
Walking through his life like a hurricane. 
Throw her away, in a day you are full of regret. 
Give you what she can, you go quickly tonight. 

Red line up the hall, bathed in the dawn.  
Daughter of the earth, look at her fly. 
Into thin air, in and out of her mind you fall. 
Look up, take her hand, may you lose her for sure. 

Isn’t it sad? 
Who could be glad? 
All that we had. 

Slipping away. 
She slipped away. 
Her heart kept at bay 
and his thoughts locked away. 
Keeping him up at night. 

She’s slipped away and now what will you do? 
She’s slipped away, oh boy, what can you do? 

Look you in the eye, like the lovers of old. 
Waited much too long, now she's already gone. 
Down by the ocean, and old broken bridge you go. 
In due time you find, that it’s only begun. 

Who could be glad? 
Isn’t it sad? 

Slipping away. 
She slipped away. 
Her love kept at bay 
and his thoughts so far away. 
Keeping him up at night. 

She slipped away and now what will you do? 
She slipped away, my dear boy, what can be done for you? 

Don’t let that girl get away from you. 
Don't you know she was meant for you?
