Lyrics

THE SLIPSTREAM

Are you waiting for the big return
The payoff you have always yearned
Would show?
If only you could get it right

Is the blame the game you played until
The penny dropped
Oh God it’s not out there
The place to find
What I’ve been looking

Long and hard
And far and wide
No stone unturned
An endless ride
Of never knowing
Taken where the wind was blowing
Gasping for the truth
Desperate for a sign of proof
THE SLIPSTREAM
Flowing

Like Florence with the
Twigs and leaves
So far from shore
But holding fast to hope
Taking comfort where you can

In a moment when it’s all too much
And the glimmer of the stars
Is all you’ve got
Know they can be enough

The marathon
The wandering
The quest for meaning
On the other side
Of pain is beauty every time

Gasping for the air of truth
Desperate for a sign of proof
THE SLIPSTREAM
Flowing

THE SLIPSTREAM
I’m listening
I pray
Protect me from imperfect storms
The riptide
My whole life
Is flashing right before my eyes

Long and hard
And far and wide
No stone unturned
An endless ride
Of never knowing
Taken where the wind was blowing
Gasping for the truth
Desperate for a sign of proof
THE SLIPSTREAM
Flowing

Are you waiting for the big return
The payoff you had always yearned
Would show?
If only you could get it right
