"Slipping Away" as written by and G. Chandler R. Stone....
Guess it's just another dream
That's slipping away
Each time I fall asleep
It seems I'm just drifting away
Just as you have touched my heart
Babe I wake and we're apart, yeah
And it's slipping away

Here comes just another day
That's drifting away
Every time I draw a breath
It's dying away
First the sun and then the moon
One of them will be around soon
Slipping away
Slipping away

Drifting away
Slipping away

Just as you have touched my heart
I wake up babe and we're apart
It seems we're slipping away
Slipping away
Slipping away

All I want is ecstacy
But I ain't getting much
Just getting off on misery
It seems I've lost my touch

Well it's just another song
But it's slipping away
Well we didn't sing it long
'Cos it's fading away
First the sun and then the moon
One of them will be round soon
Slipping away
Slipping away
Slipping away

    General CommentI'm surprised no one else has commented on this song. It's a really great tune to begin with, and the the live version on the stripped album is brilliant.

    General Commentive seen this live, i went wild when it came on. that weekend i saw snowpatrol, muse, keane, fratellis and so on. this performance blowed me away; nothing better than the live performance by the almighty richards... not bad for an old guy is he?! :p true legend

    General CommentI think it is about getting old, and still being out there rocking.

    General CommentThere's an awesome alternate version that the Stones did. It's not from the live Stripped album, it's from something else.
