Mel Street – Slip Away lyrics

While the tiny drops of rain
Race down my windowpane
There's a flood of loneliness
Running wild inside of me
My hand reaches for the phone
Dials the number at your home
To beg you once again to slip away

Though I know that it's not fair
That the one who's with you there
Buys the slippers that you leave beneath my bed
Slip the ring from your finger
And quickly after dinner
Make some excuse, and darlin
Slip away


Slip away for just an hour
Let me live for one minute
Everything in me is wanting
To hold you once again
Stealing minutes; hours; days
I just live to hear you say
"I love you", so darlin'
Slip away
