Slowly Slipping Away

Slowly slipping away I’m planting flowers babe
But they remind me of a funeral wake
I till the garden anyway
There’s nowhere that I can be
Without the thought of you that follows me
It makes it hard enough to breathe
Slowly slipping away
But you’re all I want when the sweetness goes astray
Slowly slipping away
But you’re all I want when the stars all start to fade
There’s nothing that I can do
Tomorrow is too late and tonight is too soon
But baby how can I refuse?
The stars out in the sky
Burn like hell but babe I’m cold as ice
It makes it harder when you’re right
Slowly slipping away
But you’re all I want when the sweetness goes astray
Slowly slipping away
But you’re all I want when the stars all start to fade
Heavy hearted we can’t make it on our own tonight
I’ve been stalling between hope and demise
Heavy hearted we can’t make it on our own tonight, tonight
Slowly slipping away
But you’re all I want when the sweetness goes astray
Slowly slipping away
Slowly slipping away
But you’re all I want when the sweetness goes astray
Slowly slipping away
But you’re all I want when the stars all start to fade
Slowly slipping away
