Treasure Island

Love Slipping Away


Our love flew out the window
Tossed out like an old pair of shoes
It went out soaring like an eagle
Glad to hear the news
If I could hold my life in my hand
It would be something hard to understand
It would be something I could not plan
Excuses passed around like cheap wine
Excuses that turned to lies by design
Excuses that hung on a tattered rope
Choking any chance of securing hope
Our love is drowning in a river of despair
Floating aimlessly in the current without a care
And as it slips out to sea
Our grip of love slips away tragically
The truth was hiding behind the lies
That we let flourish as love’s disguise
What a paltry game we played
The battle lost before the dragon was slayed

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
