Slipping In The Water

I watched him on the outside

Slipping in the water

Caught him in my headlights

I caught him in the full moon

I guess I’ll never know

What drove him to the lake side

I guess I’ll never know

Why he slipped into the water.

It was twenty-five to ten

I was talking to my daughter

We caught a final glimpse

As he slipped into the water

I guess I’ll never know

this story was unfolding

I guess I’ll never know

We’re witness to this carnage

He stood there on the shore

Staring in the darkness

With his feet there in the dust

Just like I did

How was I to know

As he dived into the water

I saw him coming up for air

Just like I did

I watched him in the water

Slipping into the darkness

But I caught him in my headlights

And I caught him in the full moon

I guess I’ll never know

Who drove him to the lake side

And I guess I’ll never know

Why he slipped into the water

He stood there on the shore

Staring in the darkness

With his feet there in the dust

Just like I did

But how was I to know

As he dived into the water

Saw him coming up for air

Just like I did
