Lyrics
She turns the key in the door
Switches the radio to max
Takes off her well pressed clothes
And tries to relax
Her mind spins into a different day
She’s in a job she hates but it pays the bills
She’s tripping through life….. feels it slipping away

Chorus
She’s still waiting for her life to change
Full of dreams she can’t ever seem to reach
They’re always out of range
So for now it’s her only way
She’s tripping through her life
Feels it slipping away

She wakes every morning and paints a smile on here face
Full of hope that this day her life will change
Because she knows she’s tripping through life
Feels it slipping away , slowly slipping away

-Lead-

Waking in her empty bed
The light still on, the day ahead
Crying through the showers touch
She asks for help
Doesn’t want that much
Pulls on stockings and black high heels
Stares hard in the mirror, tries to hide how she feels

She’s still waiting for her life to change
Full of dreams she can’t ever seem to reach
They’re always out of range
So for now it’s her only way
She’s tripping through life
Feels it slipping away

She wakes every morning and paints a smile on here face
Full of hope that this day her life will change
Because she knows she’s tripping through life
Feels it slipping away , slowly slipping away

Yet another great production from Fred the man...

If you guys decide to re-sing it you could Maybe tweak the lyrics from 3rd person to self or 2nd person and have Susan push her range a bit,she sings really well and could easily handle it.

Enjoyed it much just the way it is though :)

I hear experience
You can tell you've done a lot of production - all very clear and well - balanced. Some backing vocals would be nice, I think. All in all, a professional sound.
