She slides into the seat of her car,
Turns the key so it can start.
She drives faster than the law allows
Trying to outrace the sorrows of her heart.
She slides into a cold, lifeless house,
A place that is shrouded in gloom.
She wishes it were a home again.
She shuts herself up in her room.
She slides into a bubble filled tub,
She lets the water cover her skin.
She quickly loses track of the time,
Then wonders how long it's been.
She slides in between cool, lonely sheets,
She sprays her pillow with his cologne.
She struggles with the burden of love,
While sleeping in this bed alone.
She slides into a troubled sleep
Where life and death collide.
Tears spill over onto her cheeks
And she just lets them slide.
