Slipping Husband Lyrics

Sit down dear we gotta talk
You're acting like a kid
We don't wanna hear about
The things you never did

You coulda been a legend
But you became a father
That's what you are today
That's what you are today

Spending all your time
Somewhere inside...

    It's about a husband who is physically home but mentally not home.He's thinking about getting old and things he may have missed out on by getting married.
