Just slip away

There’s a freezing moon
And an iron chill
I saw across the river
The hotel ’neath the hill
Where you used to work
Selling gifts to guests
And we traded our secrets
In a million texts

Between the bridges
And the gun-metal ice
I search for you
In another life
But don’t worry darling
I know you’re there
I just have to find God
And we’ll be together again

Just slip away
You expect me to
After all these years
After all we’ve been through

Well I can do that
Like I can walk through fire
I can do that for you
If it takes you higher

Just slip away
Just slip away
I’ll slip away
One day…

I feel this guilt
Like I really messed things up
Like somehow I betrayed you
How did I crack that cup?
I know it’s not you
Though it’s your beautiful face
It’s the God behind you
And I fell from grace

We’re in this together
You play Mary for me
And then you play Judas
Now my eyes they can see
And you do it so well
I really believed you
You had me going there…
I almost started to grieve you

Just slip away
Like a poet in his sleep
Like a freedom fighter
Who lost his belief
It happens to us all
Quietly one day
The great and the small
We just slip away

Just slip away
Just slip away
We slip away
One day…

I’m falling…
I’m calling…
And part of me is unravelling
It’s strange here
But kinda familiar
Did I just die?
Where am I travelling?

Just slip away
Just slip away
I’ll slip away
One day…

I’m outside the flat
Where you used to live
I just changed some money
Well, you gotta give…
And I walk the streets
That we used to know
I live here too, now
I was just a bit too slow

It gets me each time
I’m trying to get home to you
But you’re not there
And they won’t let me through
I gotta heal this wound
Once and for all
It’s a separation from God…
And I had a fall…

Just slip away
I watched you go
You loved me so much
You wanted me to know
You loved me so much
That you gave me the pain
The pain that I needed
To just slip away

Just slip away
Just slip away
It’s really OK
To slip away

You had to love me
And you had to leave
If you hadn’t done this
I wouldn’t believe

But now I do
And now I pray
I’m ready and waiting
To slip away

Just slip away
Just slip away
I’ll slip away
One day…

Knights & Angels, Just slip away
