Slipping Away Lyrics - Sum 41

Review The Song (18)

I'm slipping away
In every way
I can't stay awake
(and I don't know why)
I'm slipping away
(and I don't know why)

I'm trying to make it through each day
I'm falling apart now in every way
I'm finding it harder to get by
There's a hole in my heart
And I don't know why
Now I've come to realize

I'm slipping away

the song describes how i feel
waking up everyday just to know what is ahead of me, making me
emotionally tired. the song talks about not knowing why they feel the way they do . which is kinda what im going through. i dont know why i feel sad most of the time, i feel like i dont have a reason to be, but i am. i guess its nice to know im not the only one out there who feels this way.

yeah | Reviewer: Katsu | 1/19/11

I could not agree more with Jay. I'm a hardcore Sum 41 fan and I think that this song is one of their best. It's so simple and yet so meaningful. It's different, yes, but that's what makes it so unique.

Sometimes less is more... | Reviewer: Jay | 10/27/09

I study music at uni level and must say that sometimes simple formulas for songs are better. Obviously not always the case with some of the gash in the charts, but I like this one. And the lyrics are simple yes...fairplay to them I've never been able to write any when I have tried.

Nice recording and warm mix.

And for you old Sum41 fans, there's nothing wrong with some change. I'm fed up of hearing "It's not real Sum41" and the same thing with other bands too, have you ever thought maybe they got bored of playing the same style for hundreds of tour dates? They're bound to mature as musicians one day.

And to be honest with most bands, after 2 albums of pretty much the same sound, if they do another it tends to get boring and samey.

idk | Reviewer: seb | 12/9/08

this song is exactly how I've been feeling for 8 or 9 months now. ever since I lost my girl... it's like she died... she's more than happy with her new guy... but no matter what I've done or how much time has passed, I still get this lingering feeling, and this song is what helps me get by and kind of relieve my feelings. awesome song, hands down

Sorry | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/26/08

I hate to say it to all of the hardcore Sum 41 fans, but this may not be one of their best songs. I have every CD and every single that they have (well, all the ones I could find), and this one does not stick out in any way. It is not what I call Sum 41.

Pure sincerity. | Reviewer: Anonymous.<3 | 5/20/08

Most amazing song ever. Just indescribable, even just the effect it has. It's so beautifully haunting. He sings with such passion and truth, and sincerity. Everyone starts to slip away, and this song tries to bring you back. I just want to write this all over myself, let everyone know what;s going on inside.

"Theres a hole in my heart
And, I dont know why"

Wow. With just 55 words, Sum 41 can make me cry.
How is such a short song so powerful ?

The violins are beautiful too.

my song | Reviewer: soph | 3/1/08

I really love this song.
My ex best friend told me to listen this (and few other songs) and she wrote a response to my letter. I'm missing her more than I thought I was missing her, and now I just realised I've lost my best friend - forever. There is no way back and she'll never be my FRIEND again.
I miss you H.

Indescribable | Reviewer: L | 12/8/07

This song just has this effect on people-and me too. whenever something is going wrong, i turn it on and just think. It's soo...indescribable. just by reading the other reviews its really kind of inspiring. The music is also just truly beautiful. thank you Sum 41.

Just too beautiful | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/23/07

This is such a great song, so calm, and so beautiful. I always play this one when i have something to think over, like problems, or hard choices, and believe me, i listen to this song quite a lot. It's just... perfectly calm.

amazin!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/22/07

i love this song! its absolutely amazin how i can relate to each & every life's been messed up for a really long time now...& this song just says it all!!

Powerful. | Reviewer: Logan | 8/17/07

I love this song. It's so amazing to sit and listen to when you need time to think. It's the best 2.5 minutes in everyday, even though I listen to it way more then once a day. I have alot going on and I can just sit and think to this song. It helps with the pressure and stress I get with my family, friends, and guys in my life. Suicide has crossed my mind a time or two, but it's just not worth it. I owe my life to the time I spent listening to this song. Thinking. It's such a powerful song. I really really love it. It's makes all the bad stuff go away. Thank you Sum 41 for writing a song like this to help everyone and give them the power and courage life needs.

Can't explain it | Reviewer: Kevin | 8/8/07

this is the best song i've herd ina while, its really short, but i really like it, it says alot in the 2 and a half minutes. I can relate to it when i started to lose the love of my life. I'm onli 15, but she's the girl for me, and this song got me through all the harships of everything, all the pressure from my friends, girlfriend, and parents. It made me think twice about suicide, and i owe my life to Sum 41..
