slip lyrics – alejandro escovedo

sometimes my friend she knocks
sometimes she just crashes in
she’ll tell a joke or two then she waits
sometimes i laugh, sometimes i cry i don’t hear a thing
sometimes she just gets bored and leaves

hey you, won’t you come and sit with me
i never promised anything, i just need for you
to slip away with me

i try to read between the lines, she won’t say a thing
i climb the walls for a better view
i turn my head and call her name, she won’t look my way
i climb the walls for a better view

hey you, won’t you come and drink with me
i haven’t broken anything
i just need for you
to slip away with me

sometimes my friend she knocks
sometimes she just stumbles in
she’ll tell a joke or two then she waits
sometimes we laugh sometimes we try we don’t feel a thing
i climb the walls for a better view

hey you, won’t you come hold on to me
it’s not the answer to anything i just need for you
to slip away with me
