Richard Marx – Slipping Away lyrics

I said I wouldn't cry
The day you say goodbye
It's not like I'll never see you again
I guess the things you need
You just can't get from me
But you still can reach out to me now and then

My head is spinning round
All my defenses down
I have held the world in my hands
But I can't keep you from slipping away,

If time will show me grace
And you to a better place
Then I can live knowing it wasn't in vain
It hurts so much to know when love means letting go
And no one can tell me that they've felt my pain

No strength can stop you now
Will someone show me how
How to live it over again
'cause I can't keep you from slipping away

I will never break your power over me
I could never shake the thought of you burning in my mind
You're all I see

Repeat Chorus

Oh, I can't keep you from slipping away
Oh, Slipping away,
