Lyrics - Skiing

©2007Jackie Henrion/Mamaloose Music Inc. (ASCAP)


Standing alone on an icy slope

Of crystal fear

My thoughts ignite like mercury light

And then it's clear

My life's like skiing down a mountainside

It feels like falling if I do it right

Lose the old stuff, be unsatisfied

The more I let go, the more I get  - to be alive

I stop to rest, heaving chest

And burning thighs

Ready to quit, enough of this

Then I realize

(repeat chorus)

I take the lift or struggle through the drift

Driven to succeed

But I’ll come down sometime, and there’s no safe incline

No safe speed

(repeat chorus)

Life's like skiing........................down
