Slipped Away

Here’s my letter to you tonight
You say you wanna make things right
A drink and lie were your best friends
That hazy fog you lived in proved too much for us to see through

You slipped away
Now you wanna talk, but can’t you see it’s a little
Too Late
Thought you’d change to save our home as silence ruled our days

But it slipped away

Your cigarette light shined in the dark
With a glass of wine you’d stumble down the hall
All those nights you checked out when I was young
Left us older with nothing to hold onto as the house began to fall

And it slipped away
Now you wanna talk, but can’t you see it’s a little
Too Late
Thought you’d change to save our home as silence ruled our days

But it slipped away

Now I’m gone and I’m grown
Part of me will always be home
Fond memories are all but gone
The coldness of your ways turned parts of my heart to stone

You slipped away
Now you wanna talk, but can’t you see it’s a little
Too Late
Thought you’d change to save our home as silence ruled our days

And you slipped away
