Slipping Away Lyrics - Mariah Carey

Review The Song (8)



Yeh, la-di-da-di-da, yeh (woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeh)
Oh-ooo, yeh (woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeh) oh-oo, yeh

(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 yeh, 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) yeh
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, yeh

(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, yeh
(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, yeh (woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh-oh) hey, yeh
Further, further, (further, further) ooo-yeh
(woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh-oh) yeh
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 (hey) that you used to be (where,yeh)
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, yeh
(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, yeh-yeh-yeh, 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, yeh-yeh-yeh)
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, yeh)
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 (oh) that you used to be (where, yeh-yeh)
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)

true fans | Reviewer: Mimi's fan | 2/2/12

@ DawnI just recently heard this song but that doesn't mean I'm not a true fan of Mariah's. And when this song was released, I was just a baby. So I wouldn't even know and besides this song wasn't available to everybody. Otherwise it coulda been a hit. I'm pretty sure I know some songs that you never heard of because she has a lot of rare music that I literally search for all over the internet. I love Mariah Carey and ALL her music are amazing.



definitely a masterpiece | Reviewer: rome114 | 4/23/10

maybe the phrase "only true fans know this" is kind of hard to press on people. after all, it was available in the always be my baby cd in the us & in the open arms cd in australia. so only a few thousand of her fans have this song... but i would say it's definitely one of her very best. so bad it's not yet in any album of hers, otherwise more of her fans will get to hear this.



Slippin Away | Reviewer: Mimi | 11/12/08

This song really represents the situation I am going through right now. I tried with everything that I can to show my lover that I want them in my life. I am holding the idea of us working out in the palm of my hands, but like water or sand it sifts right through no matter how tightly I grasp. Love it seems is just a losing battle and if You don't know me by now I guess you never will..... Yeah you Slippin Away from me it seems.....



so TRUE | Reviewer: k | 9/16/07

this is exactly how i feel right now bout my other half. i dont kno wat to do. but we're slippin away from each other.



SURREAL | Reviewer: Vee | 6/26/07

It's an absolutely gorgeous song. High ranking in chorus, lyric, and rendition.

I guess any Mariah fan would have nice things to say about her music. But I must admit I am not a big fan of all her music. But ever so often she creates a masterpiece - merely by the sheer simplicity of a song. This is clearly touché!



True fans | Reviewer: Anthony | 4/24/07

To that first comment you are a bleak asshole for you to say that only real fans know about this song...I am a true fan and not an obsessed thirst bucket beastin cuz you had the song first....I'm kinda glad that i heard it now than before because it makes my heart skip a beat when i hear a mariah song i never heard before. so BUJU!
