I Slipped, I Stumbled, I Fell

lyrics

They say good intentions
Pave the way to Hell
Well I slipped, I stumbled, I fell…

Dignity walked out the door
Pride went crawling across the floor
I heard voices and I called your name
I called for more and they came, they came
Devil got a hold of me
Shook me out hung me from a tree
I'm not the girl I planned to be
Tonight
Well alright
I just slipped, I stumbled, I fell
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

Decorum made a run for it
Grace hid beneath a table til it quit
Consequence be damned I said
I'm not waiting round for any man
Propriety stopped by last night
Askin’ if I felt alright
Shame crept in as the sun came up
And offered me another cup
Regret called in bout 9am
I said I'm never talkin’ to you again
Things look different in the morning light
You can pack your bags, slink back in the night
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

Now I can't help where my mind might go
I'm tuned in to my own radio
I dug a hole and got down in it
So deep, so deep
I couldn't quit it
Yes I’m a dreamer but I’m wide awake
My heart trembles
And my bones quake
I swallowed it whole
I took the cake
I was afraid my heart would break
Yes I slipped, I stumbled, I fell
I slipped, I stumbled, I fell

Using her gifts for wry lyricism and close to the bone observation, Carmen spins gold from playful twists of phrase, letting her lyrics and gilded vocals shine among the supernatural country arrangements. ... more
