Slipping Away
by Switchfoot

Album: Fading West
by Switchfoot


When we're coming home at 4 in the morning
Before the sun was up
Back when the east was a fire of gold
Just waiting for the rest of the sky to fall in love

Hey, hey

Our hope is just a metaphor
of something better for all of our dreams tonight
And fear is just a shadow of the things that matter the most
And I fear that I'm losing hope tonight

Oh, I feel like I'm dreaming
Oh, Staring up at the ceiling
Oh, It's 4 in the morning
I can't sleep, man it feels like a warning
Oh, yeah would you believe me
If I could say it just the way that I'm feeling
Oh, the words that I wanted to say
I feel 'em slipping away

Remember that kid with a quivering lip
Whose heart was on his sleeve like a first aid kit
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Remember that kid, didn't know when to quit
I'd still lose my breath when I think about it
Oh where'd ya go?
Oh where'd ya go?

Oh, I feel like I'm dreaming
Oh, Staring up at the ceiling
Oh, It's 4 in the morning
I can't sleep, man it feels like a warning
Oh, yeah would you believe me
If I could say it just the way that I'm feeling
Oh, the words that I wanted to say
(I feel 'em slipping away)
I feel 'em slipping away

I know this isn't what you had wanted
Past words in the present are haunting us now
And on, and on, and on, and on
My heartbeat could tell you it's urgent
I try to shout but the words don't come out

Oh, I feel like I'm dreaming
Oh, Staring up at the ceiling
Oh, It's 4 in the morning
I can't sleep, man it feels like a warning
Oh, yeah would you believe me
If I could say it just the way that I'm feeling
Oh, the words that I wanted to say
(I feel 'em slipping away)
I feel 'em slipping away

I feel 'em slipping away
I feel 'em slipping away
