  • Before it slips away

    Say something loving
    I just don't remember the thrill of affection
    I just don't remember
    Say something loving
    I need a reminder, the feeling's escaped me

    I went looking for it
    Could have been anyone's kiss
    Throwing my arms at no one
    When I gave up, I found love

    The thought flows through my mind
    And it's growing all the time
    I do myself a disservice
    To feel this weak, to be this nervous

    You say something loving
    It's so overwhelming, the thrill of affection
    Feels so unfamiliar
    You say something loving
    Without hesitation it hits me, hits me
    It feels so unfamiliar

    Before it slips away

    Your touch stays on my skin
    I feel it start sinking in
    Here come my insecurities
    I almost expect you to leave

    Were you really looking for me?
    Try your best to reassure me
    I wasn't patient to meet you
    Am I too needy, am I too eager?

    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
    I don't know what this is, but it doesn't feel wrong
    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
    I don't know what this is, but it doesn't feel wrong

    Did you hear me say it?
    Say it
    Did you hear me say?

    I say something loving
    I can't hold it inside, the thrill of affection
    Is only getting stronger
    I say something loving
    All my hesitations are fading, fading
    I feel it taking over

    Before it slips away
    Don't let it slip away
    Before it slips away
