Slipping Away

This song is by Martin Briley and appears on the album Fear Of The Unknown (1981).

You always said you're gonna be someone
You're always fighting but you still haven't won
Your luggage stands in the blue foyer
You're getting older and you never used to feel this way
I gave you water 'til the well ran dry
But there was something about the way you said goodbye
We didn't speak for so long
And I wish that I was wrong

But I can feel it slipping away
And I never thought I would be crying this way
But I can feel it in my bones
Can see the crack in the cornerstone
And I can feel it slipping away

I notice you've been neglecting your health
A mere shadow of your former self
You're full of guilt over something you've done
For what's to stop you reaching out just to touch someone
I'll wait and see what the mailman brings
Or blow the dust from the phone that never rings
And I know there is something in the air
I could swear

I can feel it slipping away
And I never thought I would be crying this way
But I can feel it in my bones
Can see the crack in the cornerstone
And I can feel it slipping away

I'll wait and see what the mailman brings
Or blow the dust from the phone that never rings
And I know there is something in the air
I could swear
I can feel it slipping away
And I never thought I would be crying this way
But I can feel it in my bones
Can see the crack in the cornerstone
And I can feel it slipping away
I can feel it slipping away
I can feel it slipping away
I can feel it slipping away
I can feel it slipping away
