(muted slightly)
      [C]Guess it's just another dream
      That's [G] slipping away
     [C] Each time I fall asleep
      It seems I'm [G] drifting away
     [C] Just as you have touched my heart
      B[D]abe I wake and w[D7]e're apart
      Y[G]eah, and it's sl[D]ipping awa[G]y
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 soo[G]n
      [D]Slipping awa[G]y
      [D]Slipping awa[G]y
  [C]   [G] Drifting away
  [C]   [G] Slipping away, yeah
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
      [Bb]All I want is [Eb]ecstacy
      But [Bb]I ain't getting m[Eb]uch
      Just g[Bb]etting off on m[Eb]isery
      It s[Bb]eems I've lost my t[Eb]ouch[D] [G]
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
      [D]               [C]      [G]                                                          
      Slipping  a-wa-a-a-a-ay  -- repeat 11x's and FADE OUT
