"Slipping Away" as written by James Fukai, Joshua Moates, Kevin Palmer and Jason Singleton....
You said, "Hold on"
But I feel like I'm slipping away
And you said, "Hold on"
But it feels like I'm slipping away

I won't let you down
The words you said to me
It's echoin' the sound
Of what would never be

I'm standing here alone
The memories remain
The same familiar home
But nothing looks the same

And I'm standing here alone
Can't tell if I'm awake
Reality is gone
In a dream I can't escape

You said, "Hold on"
But I feel like I'm slipping away
And you said, "Hold on"
But I feel like I'm slipping away

I'm getting through it now
I guess it's plain to see
That everything I am
Is not everything you need

I'm standing here alone
Can't tell if I'm awake
Reality is gone
In a dream I will escape

You said, "Hold on"
But it feels like I'm slipping away
You said, "Hold on"
But I feel like I'm slipping away

I'm standing here alone
Can't tell if I'm awake
And it feels like I'm slipping away
Reality is gone in a dream I can't escape
And I feel like I'm slipping away

    Song Meaningthis is supposed to be a site where you tell what you think the songs means... so I'll tell you what i think...=)


    you say hold on
    but I feel like I�m slipping away
    And you say hold on
    but it feels like I�m slipping away----- They were in a serious relationship and something has torn them apart... sounds like he's going in one direction and she's going in another. He doesn't know how much longer he can hold and try to make things work....it's hard to fake a smile and be happy when your really not.... he wants to give up cause he sees where the future is going. They aren't on the same page, and life just seems to have a way of doing that to people!!!!

    I won�t let you down
    The word you said to me
    is echoing the sound
    of what would never be----- by this I think he means the word "LOVE" and he has this dream of the way he wants to live his life and the kind of happiness he imagines.....but it's too far away in time....he doesn't know if he can wait that long

    I�m standing here alone
    the memories remain
    The same familiar home
    But nothing looks the same
    And I�m standing here alone
    can�t tell if I�m awake
    Reality is gone
    In a dream I can�t escape------ Yeah he obviously had a fight with her and she took her belongings and now the house is empty....and he stands there thinking of all the memories that were made in that room and he's starting to accept the reality of it!! The dream he can't escape is the life he made for himself...he is drowning in depression and he can't escape what has already been done!!!


    I�m getting through it now
    I guess it�s plain to see
    that everything I am
    is not everything you need------ Well she broke up with him..... from the way he said that.... he doesn't feel good enough for her.......but he just ran out of time.... he couldn't do everything he wanted cause of timing.
