Lyrics

It's getting late
In this tired old year
I lie awake
It's your voice that I hear

Indigent dreams
Out on the streets
Cracks in the sidewalk
Wherever we meet

And as the wind takes the leaves
So your ghost uncovers me
And as I rise to the day
It's slippin' away
Slippin' away

A call and response
The record repeats
The needle is skipping
I hope you can hear me

Out in the van
The radio's playing
I will shuffle the dial
Just to hear what you're saying

And as the wind takes the leaves
So your ghost uncovers me
And as I rise to the day
It's slippin' away
Slippin' away
Slippin' away

And as the wind takes the leaves
So your ghost uncovers me
And I rise to the day
I'm keeping the twilight dogs at bay
As the wind takes the leave
So your ghost uncovers me
And as I rise to the day
It's slippin' away
Slippin' away
Slippin' away

Slippin' away
Slippin' away
Slippin' away

They're slipping away
Slipping away
Slipping away
