I love the snow

As everyone knows I spent  a whole year in Billings, Montana, then a few years coming and going.
One of the things I loved was travelling from my home (Linda Jones' home, -my Fulbright exchange partner- to Skyview, my High School) on those icy snowy mornings. It was astounding, it was just like living a scary movie. Driving was terrible, you had to concentrate and regulate your speed because otherwise you would be all over the place. I hope this link stays because it shows you exactly what it was like and how easily you could be spinning!

       The lyrics:
Slip sliding away, slip sliding away 
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away 
Whoah and I know a man, he came from my hometown 
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown 
He said Dolores, I live in fear 
My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear 
I know a woman, (who) became a wife 
These are the very words she uses to describe her life 
She said a good day ain't got no rain 
She said a bad day is when I lie in the bed 
And I think of things that might have been 
And I know a father who had a son 
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he'd done 
He came a long way just to explain 
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping 
Then he turned around and he headed home again 
Whoah God only knows, God makes his plan 
The information's unavailable to the mortal man 
We're workin' our jobs, collect our pay 
Believe we're gliding down the highway, when in fact we're slip sliding away
