i came up with most of this song a week or so after i got out of hospital back in 2011. i originally had the title ‘give it away’ but i borrowed the ever so popular title ‘slippin’ away’… this also features my partner in crime on lead vocals, glenn bidmead.
this along with ‘miss josephine’ are my ‘paying homage’ to the late/great jeff porcaro of the band toto & indeed many other albums as a 1st call session musician. i would never have become a musician without hearing him play with all the amazing artists he did back those years ago.

slippin’ away.

just when you think you’ve got it right
the truth behind the fantasy
has taken over me

cause i’d been searchin’ all my life
finally thought i’d found the one
now it’s all undone

i’m tired of hanging on your broken promises
just when i thought we were getting closer
it seems

we’re slippin’ away
i feel our love is slowly
slippin’ away
no longer one and only
cause you and i
we were meant to fly

slippin’ away
what can i do without you?
slippin’ away
and everythin’ about you
still breaks my heart
somebody come and save me from
slippin’ away

so tell me where do i begin?
to start on getting over you
what can i do?

if only we could start again
or maybe i should walk away
no more to say

and we were just getting to the good part you and me
then i turn around
it’s over you say

i know what you’re sayin’
but do you know?
say it’s not so

and all the games you’re playin’
they don’t fool me
can’t you see?
meant to be

i feel you’re slippin’ away
i feel you’re slippin’ away
i feel you’re slippin’ away
i feel you’re slippin’ away
