Slip-slip Away



Each and everyday
 You slip further and further away
And I don't notice it until it stings
And loud in my ears it rings
That no matter what I do
I can't hold unto you
Because you keep slip-slipping away

My heart no longer beats faster when you're near
Nor does my voice call you my dear
Nor my soul feel your warmth of touch
No longer will you be my crutch
Because you keep slip-slipping away

Tears shall no longer fall for you
And I'll carry on life as I always do
When I know that you've slipped-slipped away
