  • I can feel you slipping away from me
    A little bit further now every day
    I'm holding on, but I can't believe
    This is how you want it to be

    Oh, you're slipping away
    Oh, you're slipping away

    It feels like walking down a long, dark road
    You never talk to me the way you did before
    You ride through the city with your head held high
    And all I can do is watch you go by

    Oh, you're slipping away
    Oh, you're slipping away

    I'm gonna give it all I've got to give
    I've got to hold on, see what tomorrow brings
    You're slipping away, but give me one more try
    One more chance to wipe these tears from my eyes
    You're slipping away
    Oh, you're slipping away Writer/s: JEFF LYNNE
