Ultravox – Slip Away lyrics

Enter me gently
I break in the light
Cover my eyes
With the rags of my life
Was I dreaming?
Or did you say:
"The frontiers are falling
It's time to be slipping away
Let's slip away
Let's slip away"

All things fall from me
The bonds and the veils
All things blow by me
My sorrows have sails
Was I dreaming?
Or did you say:
"The empires are fading
It's time to be slipping away
Let's slip away
Let's slip away"

What am I to do?
Don't leave me
What is there to say?
I really...
We're just wasting time
Let the night takes it's place
Colour my eyes
With the dusk of this wonderful day
Let's slip away
Let's slip away

Letters from lovers
Are lining my grave [?]
Some came too early
And some came too late
Were you speaking?
Or did I say:
"The frontiers have fallen
It's time to be slipping away
As you call me
My hands they fall open
My mouth it is frozen
The (???) stumbles is (???)
I'm falling slow-motion
