"Slipping Away" as written by Mariah Carey and Dave M. L. Hall....
I'm trying hard to understand
I'm trying hard to do the things it takes to be a man

Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be

I'm trying hard to understand "and to know just who I am"
I'm trying hard to get a break or just to give a damn

I'm trying hard to get away "but I always seem to stay"
I'm trying hard to understand a fucking word you say

Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be

Somebody help me
I' in this mess and I'm slipping away

I'm trying hard to understand "but I don't know if I can"
I'm trying hard to make the best of this mess I'm in

Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'dbe
Life's slipping away from me
I can't hold on I can't belive it
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be

Somebody help me
I'm in this mess and I'm slipping away

I'm trying hard to understand

    General Commenthey nicki i just sent you an email about this i was able to join the site after i sent the email so ill just put what i said in here................

    I am friends with this band and i can tell ya that
    this song is not about heroin or coke. Edsel writes about what he knows he does not use heroin or coke so he wouldnt write about it. It's basicly about dope in its early stages of life. not knowing if dope would be big and if anyone would like them music is his (edsel's) life if he isnt doing music then his life is slipping away.

    General CommentYeah, Dope is so dope! Slipping Away's about finding out who you are. One of those identity songs. The best one. Huzzah for Dope!
