Mumford & Sons – Slip Away lyrics
[Verse 1]
No more questions no more lies
Do and deal for no surprises
Cause you will never slip away
Slip away in the night

[Verse 2]
Waiting patient for the sun to rise
In reveals a stoic smile
But you will never slip away
Slip away in the night

[Chorus]
You find me waiting here for you
Come and suffer here
You find me holding my breath for you
Come and suffer here

[Verse 3]
In the violence of a mind's eye
We had a deal for no surprises
Cause you will never slip away
Slip away in the night

[Refrain]
But you're not yourself
I know you better than you
But you're not yourself
I know you better than you

[Chorus]
You find me holding my breath for you
It's never more than I can take
I wouldn't have it any other way
You find me on my knees for you
It's never more than I can take
I wouldn't have it any other way

[Break]
Don't you lie down, be still in love
Don't you leave now, be still in love
Don't you leave now, be still

[Chorus]
You find me holding my breath for you
It's never more than I can take
I wouldn't have it any other way
You find me on my knees for you
It's never more than I can take
I wouldn't have it any other way

[Outro]
But you're not yourself
I know you better than you
And you're not yourself
I know you better than you
