Agnetha Faltskog – Slipping Through My Fingers lyrics

School bag in hand

She leaves home

In the early morning

Waving goodbye

With an absent-minded smile

I watch her go

With a surge of

That well-known sadness

And I have to sit down

For a while

The feeling that I’m

Loosin her forever

And without really

Entering her world

I’m glad whenever I

Can share her laughter

That funny little girl

Slipping through my fingers

All the time

I try to capture

Every minute

The feeling in it

Slipping through my fingers

All the time

Do I really see what’s

In her mind

Each time I think

I’m close to knowing

She keeps on growing

Slipping through my fingers

All the time

Sleep in our eyes

Her and me

At the breakfast table

Barely awake I

Let precious time go by

Then when she’s gone

There’s that odd

Melancholy feeling

And a sense of

Guilt I can’t deny

What happened to the

Wonderful adventures

The places I had

Planned for us to go

Well some of that we did

But most we didn’t

And why I just don’t know

Slipping through my fingers…

Sometimes I wish

That I could freeze

The picture

And save it from

The funny tricks of time

Schoolbag in hand

She leaves home

In the early morning

Waving goodbye

With an absent-minded smile
