Slipping Away

Slipping Away
By Jimmy Rankin

I’m slipping away
On a northern night
The edge of the day
No end in sight
So many places
I went wrong
So many reasons
To get where I belong

I hear you calling
1000 lightyears away
It’s all I can do to keep from falling
Stop time from stalling
As I go slipping away
Slipping away

In a strangers land
Been stumbling around
And exiled man
Been burning bridges down
On borrowed time
Looking for the best
Again and again
It always comes to this

I hear you calling
1000 lightyears away
It’s all I can do to keep from falling
Stop time from stalling
As I go slipping away
Slipping away

So many places
I’ve sold my soul
Only one reason
I need to carry on

I hear you calling
1000 lightyears away
It’s all I can do to keep from falling
Stop time from stalling
