Lyrics

Back in my old hometown there were long summer days
Then there were leaves on the ground and it was too cold to play
This city's colder than cold; it’s faceless and grey
And all the dreams that you hold keep slipping away…

Slipping away, slipping away
Little by little, and day by day
Slipping away, slipping away
Little by little, and day by day
I feel it slipping away

Saw an old friend of mine; asked if he was ok
He said everything’s fine, then his eyes filled with pain
Yeah, he had nothing to lose, he had nothing to say…
He feeling worn out and used, and slipping away

Slipping away, slipping away
Little by little, and day by day
Slipping away, slipping away
Little by little, and day by day
I feel it slipping away

But put up a fight
Starting right here today
It’s time you saw the light
Before you just slip away

Slipping away, slipping away
Little by little, and day by day
Slipping away, slipping away
Little by little, and day by day
Slipping away, slipping away
Little by little, and day by day
Slipping away, slipping away
Little by little, and day by day
Day by day, I feel it slipping away
Yeah I feel them slipping away…
Oooohhh ohhhhhhhhhh
