    One Slip Lyrics

    A restless eye across a weary room
    A glazed look and I was on the road to ruin
    The music played and played as we whirled without end
    No hint, no word her honour to defend

    “I will, I will,” she sighed to my request
    And then she tossed her mane while my resolve
    was put to the test

    Then drowned in desire, our souls on fire
    I lead the way to the funeral pyre
    And without a thought of the consequence
    I gave in to my decadence

    One slip and down the hole we fall
    It seems to take no time at all
    A momentary lapse of reason
    That binds a life for life
    A small regret, you won’t forget
    There’ll be no sleep in here tonight

    Was it love, or was it the idea of being in love?
    Or was it the hand of fate that seemed to fit just like a glove?
    The moment slipped by and soon the seeds were sown
    The year grew late and neither one wanted to remain alone

    One slip and down the hole we fall
    It seems to take no time at all
    A momentary lapse of reason
    That binds a life to a life
    You won’t regret, you will never forget
    There’ll be no sleep in here tonight

    One slip … one slip
