Maybe I"m biased because I prospered up in the "90s and also was practically raised by country Music Television, yet I still think it was the best era for nation music videos.

"Don"t Let our Love start Slippin" Away" Lyrics:


We"ve to be upAll night longTrying to settle a problemHell it"s virtually dawnAin"t no time for sleepin"If our love is wearin" thin"Cause ns ain"t givin" upAnd you ain"t givin" in
Don"t let our love begin slippin"Love start slippin" away"Cause the life we"ve been livin"Gets harder everydayDon"t let our love begin slippin"Love begin slippin" away
A wounded loveWalks a actual thin lineAnd no communicationWill kill it every timeSo open up her heartBaby we have the right to work the out"Cause we"ve acquired the sort of lovePeople dream about
Don"t let our love start slippin"Love start slippin" away"Cause the life we"ve been livin"Gets more difficult everydayDon"t let our love start slippin"Love start slippin" away
