Slippery Slope

 

 

“Slippery Slope”

if I said

convince me

would your jumbled reasons tumble out too quickly

if we kissed

what follows

i need to know now that your arguments aren”t hollow

it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down

you’re giving me hope; i’m giving ground

it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down

into love

love love love la-love love love

love love love la-love love love

are you for real

or just some straw man

do we have more than chemistry in common

if i give an inch

will you take a mile

cuz i need more than just some cocky smile

it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down

you’re giving me hope; i’m giving ground

it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down

into love

love love love la-love love love

love love love la-love love love

you’ve got to prove your love

you’ve got to make the case

you’ve got to show your work

if you want my embrace

it’s simple cause and effect

where is the quid pro quo

appeal to my intellect

or you might as well go

it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down

you’re giving me hope; i’m giving ground

it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down

into love

love love love la-love love love

love love love la-love love love

i wanna break

through this confusion

if we’re gonna take this to its logical conclusion

i wanna move

beyond flirtation

i think you’ve won my process of elimination

it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down

you’re giving me hope; i’m giving ground

it’s a slippery slope we’re sliding down

into love

love love love la-love love love

love love love la-love love love
