Funny how life can slip away before you know what's happened it's gone
You always think there'll be another day
But before you know it life's gone and slipped away
Ask a lonely man whose hair is silvery grey
If he can count the hearts he's broken in his days
I'll bet he'll bow his head and softly say
Son before you know it life's gone and slipped away
I know a lady who lived her life at play
And I remember when she was so young and gay
But now alone she cries for yesterdays
Before she knew it life has gone and slipped away
Yes before you know it life has gone and slipped away
