Slipping Through My Fingers (ABBA)

G Gmi D F#mi 1. Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness G A D And I have to sit down for a while G A D F# The feeling that Im losing her forever G A D And without really entering her world Im glad whenever I can share her laughter A Dsus4 D That funny little girl D G6 D R: Slipping through my fingers all the time F#mi Emi I try to capture every minute D The feeling in it Asus4 A D Slipping through my fingers all the time G6 D Do I really see whats in her mind F#mi Emi Each time I think Im close to knowing D She keeps on growing Asus4 A D Slipping through my fingers all the time 2. Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table Barely awake, I let precious time go by Then when shes gone theres that odd melancholy feeling And a sense of guilt I cant deny What happened to the wonderful adventures The places I had planned for us to go (slipping through my fingers all the time) Well, some of that we did but most we didnt And why I just dont know R: Slipping through my fingers all the time... G A D F# Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture G A D And save it from the funny tricks of time G D Slipping through my fingers... G Gmi D F#mi Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile...
