"Let It Slip Away" as written by and John Hiatt....
Love only stays for a little while baby
That's what I said cause I was scared
Too scared to say what you mean to me baby
Too afraid to show how much I cared

Feel love well I couldn't be here
So you just packed up and said goodbye
I feel love but now it's too late
And all I do is cry

[Chorus:]
'Cause I know that your memory lingers
I think about you night and day
I know from the tips of my fingers
I had your love but I let it slip away
I had your love but I let it slip away

Could not have your heart any day pretty baby
You could be here now and it's killin' me
I'm standing all alone in the way pretty baby
In the way of love that was meant to be

I know cause your memory lingers
I think about you night and day
I know from the tips of my fingers
I had your love but I let it slip away
I had your love but I let it slip away

Feel love well I couldn't be here
So you packed it up and said goodbye
I feel love but now it's too late
And all I do is cry

'Cause I know that your memory lingers
I think about you night and day
I know from the tips of my fingers
I had your love but I let it slip away
I know that your memory lingers
I think about you night and day
I know from the tips of my fingers
I had your love but I let it slip away
I had your love but I let it slip away
