Downhill Slide
Dallas Wayne

V.1
DIRTY CLOTHES AND DIRTY DISHES ALL OVER THE FLOOR
DON'T BOTHER KNOCKIN' I WON'T ANSWER THE DOOR
I RIPPED THE PHONE RIGHT OUT OF THE WALL
SO "I'M SORRY I WON'T BE ABLE TO TAKE YOUR CALL"
AIN'T SHAVED FOR A WEEK CAUSE I DON'T WANT NOTHIN' SHARP
I JUST SIT HERE ALONE AND CALL YOUR NAME IN THE DARK
MY FRIENDS SAY "SON, AIN'T YOU GOT NO PRIDE"
I SAY LEAVE ME ALONE, I'M ON A DOWNHILL SLIDE

CH.
I'M ON A DOWNHILL SLIDE
I COULDN'T STOP IT IF I TRIED
I'M ON A DOWNHILL SLIDE
ON A MIDNIGHT RIDE WITH WHAT'S LEFT OF MY MIND
I'LL BE SURE TO WAVE HELLO AS I GO BY
BUT JUST LEAVE ME ALONE, I'M ON A DOWNHILL SLIDE

V.2
LAST NIGHT I DREAMED WE WERE IN THIS ELEVATOR
AND YOU WERE TELLING ME THAT YOU WOULD LOVE ME FOREVER
THAT WAS JUST ABOUT THE TIME THAT THE CABLE BROKE
THEN YOU DISAPPEARED IN A PUFF OF SMOKE
I SWORE I HEARD YOU LAUGHIN' AS I RACED TO MY DEATH
I WOKE UP SCREAMING, THE SHEETS WERE SOAKING WET
SO I GOT MY BOOK OF DREAMS AND I LOOKED INSIDE
IT SAID "I HATE TO TELL YOU SON, YOU'RE ON A DOWNHILL SLIDE"

V.3
WELL I WENT BACK TO BED AND I DRIFTED OFF TO SLEEP
I DREAMED THAT I WAS HUNGRY, WANTED SOMETHING TO EAT
SO I FOUND ME A DINER, WALKED IN AND SAT DOWN
YOU WERE THE WAITRESS DRESSED IN YOUR WEDDING GOWN
YOU SAID "YOU DON'T NEED A MENU, I KNOW JUST WHAT YOU NEED
I MADE IT MYSELF, HONEY, BON APPETIT"
IT WAS MY HEAD ON A PLATTER AND MY HEART ON THE SIDE
I ASKED YOU WHAT'S THIS CALLED, YOU SAID "A DOWNHILL SLIDE"

REPEAT CH.
