A slip away (Ett Snedsteg Bort)

A slip away

I know how life has treated you
So, I don't blame you
I just miss the old you
Let us say how it (really) is

If you miss your step, it is a long way down
Tell like it is (as it is)
(brother)

You live life on the edge
They say that sand of life has ran out from hourglass
So, you have your future in your hands
From the bottle you find your soul/spirit

You say that you will flee the country
Leave the shit to live on the beach
Damn, we lost you the same moment
as you found it

Love is running in your arms
But I feel your tears
They sting more than my own (tears)
So I won't blame you

I just miss the old you
System only gives you one chance, one chance
The street is just one slip (mistake) away
In their eyes, we have no place

They leave you alone
System only gives you one chance, one chance
The road to living on the street is short
if you fall behind, you will never catch up

No, you fall down quickly
Don't know anymore what I am running from
But the pressure to perform is eating me from inside
I have to get out of this ratrace (paddock)

My body has no worries, but no goal
In the city, everybody is becoming educated
To gain status or become a loser
Do we seriously believe that life will be better

When one has success but no friends anymore
In the beginning you were full of life and "wind"
Now you are successful but hollow
You aim high and reach it immediately
And everything else becomes a side effect

No,
System only gives you one chance, one chance
The street is just one mistake away
In their eyes, we have no place

They leave you alone
System only gives you one chance, one chance
The road to living on the street is short
if you fall behind, you will never catch up

No,
Empty promises and deceit we have
Our fair share
The friends are worth more
The friends are worth more
The friends are worth more

It will become too heavy to bear that alone
The friends are worth more
The friends are worth more
In this "crooked-step" system

Stuck in the gap without paper (??)
You will never be accepted
Stuck in the gap without paper (??)
You will never be accepted
