"Slide Away" as written by and Andy/hutchence Gill....
Are you gonna wake again?
Are you gonna take it down?
Oh babe, I don't wanna deal it
Oh, make it alright
Gimme some, my love
Away, away, away

I just wanna slide away and come alive again
I just wanna slide away and come alive again
I will see that love again, and find a life again
I just wanna slide away and come alive again

I wanted to let it go
Just couldn't let it go
I wanted to let it go
Just couldn't let you go

I would catch you
(Just couldn't let you go)
I'd catch you as you fall
(Just couldn't let it go)
I would catch you
(Just couldn't let you go)
I'd catch you if I heard your call

But you tore a hole in space
Like a dark star, falls from grace
You burn across the sky
And I would find you wings to fly
And I would catch you
I would catch your fall

I just wanna slide away and come alive again
I just wanna slide away and come alive again
I will see that love again, and find a life again
I just wanna slide away and come alive again

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. I guess everyone wants a fresh start at some time or another. A touching side-note, Bono, who was a good friend to Hutchence, apparently wrote lyrics for this unfinished song after Hutchence's suicide. Making Bono's verse both beautiful and painful. Rest in peace, Michael, I hope maybe you found what you were looking for. ?

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous- gogeously depressing too. :(

    The lyrics that Bono wrote ache of sadness. About wishing you could have been there and done something at the time. The chorus- "I just want t slide away"- is proably exactly as it says- wanting to slide away, to let it go, forget everything and go see the ones you love. It's about trying to find yourself and yur life again.
