Allan Clarke – Slipstream lyrics

Caught in a slipstream
Moving to a bad dream
I wasn't ready for the jet lag
The worst trip I ever had

Two up, two down
On the wrong side of town
Don't be old fashioned
Throw the glass around

A baby cries from a tenement below
We were together then
But that was long ago

Now listen to the wind
As it cries to me in vain
She's uptown now
And moving on again

[Chorus:]

Slipstream, ooh, you know
I'm falling apart at the seams
Caught in a slipstream tonight

We used to paint the mission
Down on Fifth Street, North of Vine
We did it all for peanuts
Didn't pay us for our time

Then we started chasing rainbows
That waved overhead
I tried to fly there with you
But my wings were made of lead

Now listen to the wind
As it cries to me in vain
She's uptown now
And moving on again

Caught in a slipstream
(Caught in a slipstream)
Moving to a bad dream
I wasn't ready for the jet lag
The worst trip I ever had

Slipstream
Ooh, falling apart at the seams
Caught in a slipstream tonight
Yeah, tonight

[Repeat chorus 2x]

Now I'm caught in a slipstream
Yes, caught in a slipstream
Caught in a slipstream

Caught in a slip, bad dream
You know I'm caught in a slipstream

Caught in a slipstream
(Moving on a bad dream)
Moving to a bad dream
(You know I'm caught in a slipstream)

Caught in a slipstream
Moving to a bad dream
