A Slippery Rope

I feel inside there ain’t no hope…
I’m holding on to a slippery rope…
I write the words, I sing the song…
Everything that can has gone wrong…

Nothing that I’ve touched has turned to gold…
Look at me now I’m just growing old…
Look at me now take a good look at me…
There ain’t no love ever gonna come to me…

These feelings inside tell me no lie…
I feel I could lay down and die…
I’m just holding on to a slippery rope…
I feel inside there ain’t no hope…

I have a good heart but a wondering mind…
There ain’t no room in this world for my kind…
Love came to me then she had to go…
How she felt about me I don’t know…

She ran from me I wasn’t what she thought…
She ran so she would never be caught…
I look to the sky it looks down at me…
I can feel it doesn’t like what it sees…

These feelings inside tell me no lie…
I feel I could lay down and die…
I got to change my life, change my style…
I got to find someone to make life worth while…

I know there’s someone out there just right for me…
She’s out there somewhere just waiting for me…
I’ve changed my tune, I’ll not give up hope…
I’m holding on tight to a slippery rope…

Your Meaning Of Life

I was walking through life with nothing on my mind…
Looking forward, never looking back behind…
Wondering what life has to give…
Wondering what the meaning of life really is…

I come to a door and open it wide…
All I could hear was the children cry…
I step through the door and to my surprise…
I’m standing on a mountain watching the sun rise…

Children running here and everywhere…
Eating all the fruit that the trees can bear…
Moms and dads wearing smiles on their face…
I can’t understand the whole human race…

I come off the mountain and into the valley…
There is crime in the streets love in the alleys…
I don’t understand where I need to go…
Life is just like a picture show…

Life has a beginning and an end…
How you live it is up to you my friend…
I’m living life with my heart on my sleeve…
Living in a time I just can’t believe..

Save your sister, save your brother too…
Nobody else looks the way that you do…
To go forward in life you have to look behind…
Pray for the next generation of mankind…

When you come to your door, step on inside…
Don’t be afraid of what you may find…
Open your eyes see what life has to give…
Find what your meaning of life truly is…

Somewhere In Time

I know you loved me, I loved you too…
We held hands in whatever we’d do…
I’d kiss you each night before we turned out the light…
You’d lay at my side holding me tight…

I watched your love for me fall from your heart…
I watched helplessly as we drifted apart…
A little bit each day then it was gone…
There was no more love for us to hold on…

Were we fools hanging on for so long…
Knowing there was something so wrong…
I loved you, you loved me I know…
That was somewhere in time, A long time ago…

You said you would love me til the end of time…
Kiss the ground I walked on, always be mine…
I don’t know what happened, still don’t today…
One day we said goodbye, went on our way…

I watched your love for me fall from your heart…
I watched helplessly as we drifted apart…
Neither one of us were to blame…
Our hearts were not in the game…

I know you loved me, I loved you too…
We held hands, in whatever we’d do…
A little bit each day then it was gone…
There was no more love for us to hold on…

Were we fools hanging on for so long…
Knowing there was something so wrong…
I loved you, you loved me I know…
That was somewhere in time, A long time ago…
