I’ve been lost in way back when
In clothes I’ll never wear again
Ponytails and paper planes
And climbing up the tall trees
Thinking back to hide and seek,
Everyday seemed like a week
Sunday school and cigarettes
And kissing at the movies
Now it’s hard cause
I really thought that time was
Moving slowly, but I found out it was only

Slippin’ away (3x)
Slippin’ away yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

One day I found myself with you,
Saw all my girlhood dreams come true
Still, there’s other dreams
And nothing lasts forever
I put braid into my hair
But you don’t seem to see them there
And in your mind, I think
You’re off to California
And it’s hard cause I truly though
That I was in your vision
Starry eyes, I see you’ve been

Slippin’ away (3x)
Slippin’ away yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

We are water
We are the sand the wind blows on
Before we’re here
We are gone…

And so it turns in simple ways
Now the weeks go by like days
Where’s the little girl?
She’s gone and so forgotten
And it’s strange cause I truly thought
That change was nowhere near me
And all the time I was really

Slippin’ away (7x)
I’m slippin’ away yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
