'Cause it only breaks my heart, to see you goin through there to see you
Goin through this and there's nothing that I can do and it only breaks my
Heart, you don't havta do this I'v got nothing to hold on to

'Cause you keep slipping away, a little bit more everyday now feels like I'm
Running in place you keep slipping away away just when I get you alone it
Feels like I'm on my own like the tears running down on your face you keep
Slipping away away, you keep slipping away

And it only makes me sad I think we almost made it, girl we almost made it
You know as well as I and I take you in my arms, pull you close to me but
Every time I try

You keep slipping away a little bit more every day now feels like I'm
Running in place you keep slipping away away just when I get you alone it
Feels like I'm on my own like the tears running down on your face you keep
Slipping away away you keep slipping away

Should I give up? should I let go? my mind says yes but my heart says no,
My heart says no, my heart says no

'Cause you keep slipping away, a little bit more every day now feels like
I'm running in place you keep slipping away away cause you keep slipping
Away (oooh you you)

'Cause you keep slipping away, a little bit more every day now feels like
I'm running in place you keep slipping away away just when I get you alone,
Feels like I'm on my own like the tears running down on your face you keep
Slipping away away you keep slipping away (you keep slipping away)

    He still loves a girl, he can tell she is losing intrest and that she dosent wanna break his heart, he is trying to get her back but he can't because she keeps "slipping away" so he is going to let her go

    Its simple, the guy is trying everything to please the girl with his love but the girl keeps the distance between them. The hard part is that the guy wants to give up but his heart won't. :)
