Slipping Through My Fingers  ABBA

Slipping through my fingers ? Abba
Verse1
[G]Schoolbag in han[Gm]d
She leaves h[D]ome in the e[F#m]arly morning
[G]Waving g[Gm]oodbye
With an [D]absent-minded sm[F#m]ile
[G]I watch her [G#m]go
With a s[D]urge of that wel[F#m]l-known sadness
[G]And I have to si[A]t down for a whi[Dsus4]le [D]
The [G]feeling that I'm loo[A]sing her forever[D] [F#]
[G]And without really enter[A]ing her wor[D]ld
[G]I'm glad whenever I[A] can share her laught[D]er, that fun[A]ny little gi[Dsus4]rl [D]
Chorus:
[G]Slipping through my fing[A]ers all the time[D]
I try to c[F#m]apture[Em] every minute
The feeling [D]in it
Slipping through my fing[A]ers all the time[Dsus4] [D]
Do I really see [G]what's in her mi[D]nd
Each time I thin[F#m]k I'm close to k[Em]nowing
She keeps on gro[D]wing
Slipping through my fing[A]ers all the time[Dsus4] [D]
Verse2
[G]Sleep in our eye[Gm]s
Her and [D]me at th[F#m]e breakfast table
[G]Barely a[Gm]wake
[D]I let precious time go b[F#m]y
[G]Then when she's [Gm]gone
There's that odd[D] melanch[F#m]oly feeling
[G]And a sense of g[A]uilt I can't den[Dsus4]y[D]
What hap[G]pened to the won[A]derful a[D]dventures
The plac[G]es I had[A] planned for us to g[D]o (slipping through my fingers all the time)
[G]Well some of that we did[A]
But most we didn[D]'t
[A]And why I just don't kno[Dsus4]w[D]
Chorus:
[G]Slipping through my fing[A]ers all the time[D]
I try to c[F#m]apture[Em] every minute
The feeling [D]in it
Slipping through my fing[A]ers all the time[Dsus4] [D]
Do I really see [G]what's in her mi[D]nd
Each time I thin[F#m]k I'm close to k[Em]nowing
She keeps on gro[D]wing
Slipping through my fing[A]ers all the time[Dsus4] [D]
[G]Sometimes I wish that I [A]could freeze the picture[D] [F#m]
[G]And save it from the fun[A]ny tricks of tim[D]e
[G]Slipping through my fing[A]ers
[G]Schoolbag in han[Gm]d
[D]She leaves home in the e[F#m]arly morning
[G]Waving g[Gm]oodbye with an a[D]bsent-minded smi[F#m]le
