SLIPPIN' AWAY
Max Merritt & The Meteors


Baby I've been watchin' you
(Baby I've been watchin' you)
Watchin' everything you do
(Watchin' everything you do)
And I just can't help but feelin'
Someone else is stealin' you away from me
I see it written in your eyes
And you confirm it with your lies
Though the way the weave can hold me
I would rather that you told me, where you wanna be

Oh, oh, oh, you're slippin' away from me
Oh, oh, oh, you're slippin' away from me
And it's breakin' me in two
Watchin' you slippin' away

Baby, I've been watchin' you
(Baby, I've been watchin' you)
Watchin' everything you do
(Watchin' everything you do)
And I just can't help but feelin'
Someone else is stealin' you away from me
I see it written in your eyes
And you confirm it with your lies
Though the way the weave can hold me
I would rather that you told me, where you wanna be

Oh, oh, oh, you're slippin' away from me
Oh, oh, oh, you're slippin' away from me
And it's breakin' me in two
(Breakin' me in two)
Watchin' you slippin' away
And it's breakin' me in two
(Breakin' me in two)
Watchin' you slippin' away
And it's breakin me in two
(Breakin' me in two)
Watchin' you slippin' away

Baby I've been watchin' you
Watchin' everything you do
And I just can't help but feelin'
Someone else is stealin' you away from me
I see it written in your eyes
And you confirm it with your lies
Though the way the weave can hold me
I would rather that you told me, where you wanna be

Whoa, oh, oh, you're slippin' away from me
Whoa, oh, oh, you're slippin' away from me
And it's breakin' me in two
Watchin' you slippin' away
And it's breakin' me in two
Watchin' you slippin' away

(Fades to End)
Yes, it's breakin' me in two
Watchin' you slippin' away
I said, it's breakin' me in two
Watchin' you slippin' away
