One slip Lyrics - Pink Floyd

Review The Song (10)



A restless eye across a weary room
A glazed look and I was on the road to ruin
The music played and played as we whirled without end
No hint, no word her honour to defend

I will, I will she sighed to my request
And then she tossed her mane while my resolve was put to the test
Then drowned in desire, our souls on fire
I lead the way to the funeral pyre
And without a thought of the consequence
I gave in to my decadence

One slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no time at all
A momentary lapse of reason
That binds a life for life
A small regret, you won't forget,
There'll be no sleep in here tonight

Was it love, or was it the idea of being in love?
Or was it the hand of fate, that seemed to fit just like a glove?
The moment slipped by and soon the seeds were sown
The year grew late and neither one wanted to remain alone

One slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no time at all
A momentary lapse of reason
That binds a life to a life
The one regret, you will never forget,
There'll be no sleep in here tonight

Love this song | Reviewer: Guy | 4/24/14

Wonderful lyrics and haunting melody.

My take on the song is that the man isn't marrying a woman. It is about a man having an affair with a woman (doesn't matter if he/she/both are married). This song takes place after the affair has started. He is recollecting how the affair started and what affect the affair has had on them. He is feeling guilt and ponders the reasoning on why it happened.

Still Playing in My Head.. | Reviewer: Cindy | 9/13/13

This timeless song has a staying power like no other. He falls head over heels and wonders why he didn't think about the consequences before jumping into hot water.
She reeled him in and he followed without hesitation. Haven't we all been there before?
Amazing, insightful song!

Hi guys. To me this song is very obviously about a man meeting a woman on a night out, they dance and later on make love together and ("the seeds were sown"). One of the very few things that can bind people "for life" is having a kid together.

Marriage | Reviewer: Mr Obvious | 4/27/12

Hes getting married (in the song).

Its his thoughts about the event that is marriage. The "one slip" was saying agreeing to the marriage.

"I will, I will she sighed to my request
And then she tossed her mane while my resolve was put to the test"
Someone just proposed and feels like a dog chasing a moving car that just stopped.

"Was it love, or was it the idea of being in love?
Or was it the hand of fate, that seemed to fit just like a glove?"
It happened without hardship, which made someone doubt if something this "big" was really meant to be this "easy".

"One slip, and down the hole we fall
It seems to take no time at all
A momentary lapse of reason
That binds a life to a life"

DOESNT REALLY NEED EXPLAINING

To summarize: The judgement slip was getting married.

Slip | Reviewer: WF1239 | 2/12/11

Great song...if you read the lyrics, Id say its about a man and woman who have one slip in judgment...no worries, just my thoughts on this.

"Was it love, or was it the idea of being in love? Or was it the hand of fate, that seemed to fit just like a glove? The moment slipped by and soon the seeds were sown...the year grew late and neither one wanted to remain alone"

Another Jewel by Pink Floyd | Reviewer: Dan Brown | 2/8/09

There i no doubt about it, David Gilmour is among the gods. This song shows what is to come from him,and Pink Floyd in the future, and it only gets better and better.

Roger Waters was also a very intelligent person, but in my opinion David Gilmour makes a much better front-man, delivering a beautiful mellow aura.

more than one slip | Reviewer: texas torture | 11/14/07

this is probably my fav floyd song. not only is the music excellent, the words describe a person who has been to the edge of hell - and, thankfully, back!

absolutely fabulous | Reviewer: Dagmar | 7/8/07

My favorite song from pink floyd...along with all the others. Truly , this song gives me butterflies ...

Pretty good... | Reviewer: Frit DeNillie | 4/12/07

One Slip is probably one of the best Floyd songs they recorded after Roger Waters left the band. Powerful, strong lyrics, great musical build-up and an awesome bass-guitar break!
