"Slip Away" as written by Gabrielle Aplin, Nicholas William Atkinson and Edward James Holloway....
Locked inside my mind, passing time
With nothing to lose
Trying to find a reason to fight
With nothing to prove

I’ve been waiting for the light to glow
Waiting for the love to show
Waiting for you

I’m just laying in the fading light
Waiting for the chance to strike
Waiting for you

But it’s never right
It’s never good enough for you
Can’t speak my mind
‘Cause you don’t wanna hear the truth
You only tell me,
What you want me to say
You’ve made your point
But I can do this myself

How could you do this to me?
It’s getting harder to breathe
Can’t hold me down, can’t drown me out
'Cause I’ll slip away slowly
The closer you hold me

Temporary moments to fight
Distorting the view
Visionaries chasing the heights
For something to do

When everything's been done before
You’re still knocking at my door, begging for more
When you're spinning me another line
Thinking I'll just take them blind, is that all I’m for?

But it’s never right
It’s never good enough for you
Can’t speak my mind
‘Cause you don’t wanna hear the truth
You only tell me,
What you want me to say
You’ve made your point
But I can do this myself

How could you do this to me?
It’s getting harder to breathe
Can’t hold me down, can’t drown me out
‘Cause I’ll slip away slowly
The closer you hold me

How could you do this to me?
It’s getting harder to breathe
Can’t hold me down, can’t drown me out
‘Cause I’ll slip away slowly
The closer you hold me
