(So far so far, you're slipping away, away)
You're slipping away from the life and the love we made
Baby, I'm so afraid
(You're so far so far)
(Oh, yeah, babe)
(So far, you're slipping away, away)

You're slipping right out of my grasp
And you're fading fast it seems
You know you're slipping away from me

I keep on reaching and I keep on trying
But you never even hold me
And it seems like you don't know me, baby

I keep on yearning and I, I guess I'm learning
That it's just a losing fight
'Cause there's no passion in your eyes
No, no, no, no, babe

(So far, so far, you're slipping away, away)
Yeah, you're slipping away from the life
And the love we made, baby, I'm so afraid
(You're so far, so far, so far)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(You're slipping away, away)

You're slipping right out of my grasp
And you're fading fast it seems
You know you're slipping away from me

I keep denying that our, our love is dying
But it's all a big charade and it's a fruitless game to play
I can't remember when you, you last were tender
And it's always touch and go your silence chills me to the bone, yeah

(So far, so far, you're slipping away, away)
You're slipping away from the life
And the love we made, baby, I'm so afraid, yeah
(You're so far, so far, so far, you're slipping away, away)

You're slipping right out of my grasp
And you're fading fast it seems
You know you're slipping away from me

Away, away, away, away, away, yeah, hey, yeah
Further, further, ooh, yeah
(Further, further)
Yeah, you're so far

Time after time I reach for you
I try and I try but you're so aloof
Where is the boy that you used to be?
(Hey, where, yeah)

Baby, you're slipping away from me
(You're so far away from me, baby, baby)
Time after time I reach for you
I try and I try but you're so aloof

Where is the boy that you used to be?
(Oh, babe)
Baby, you're slipping away from me
(You're so far)

(So far so far, you're slipping away, away)
Slipping away from what we had, truly, I just don't understand, yeah
(You're so far, so far, so far, you're slipping away, away)

You're slipping right out of my grasp
And you're fading so fast it seems
You know you're slipping away, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby

(So far so far, you're slipping away, away)
Time after time I reach for you
I try and I try but you're so aloof
Where is the boy that you used to be?
(Oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Baby, you're slipping away from me

(So far so far, you're slipping away, away)
Time after time I reach for you
(So far, yeah)
I try and I try but you're so aloof
Where is the boy that you used to be?
Baby, you're slipping away from me
(Baby, baby, baby, I'm so afraid)

(So far so far, you're slipping away, away)
Time after time I reach for you
I try and I try but you're so aloof
Where is the boy that you used to be?
(Oh, where, yeah, yeah)
Baby, you're slipping away from me

(So far so far, you're slipping away, away)
Time after time I reach for you
I try and I try but you're so aloof
(So far)
Where is the boy that you used to be?
(So far)
Baby, you're slipping away from me
(Oh)
