Slipping Through My Fingers - ABBA

Verse 1

G Gm

Schoolbag in hand

D F#m

She leaves home in the early morning

G Gm

Waving goodbye

D F#m

With an absent-minded smile

G Gm

I watch her go

D F#m

With a surge of that well-known sadness

G A D

And I have to sit down for a while

Pre-Chorus

G A/C# D

The feeling that I'm losing her forever

F# G A D

And without really entering her world

D/F# G A/C# D

I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter

Asus4 Dsus4 D

That funny little girl

Chorus

G D

Slipping through my fingers all the time

F#m Em

I try to capture every minute

G D

The feeling in it

Asus4 A D

Slipping through my fingers all the time

G D

Do I really see what's in her mind

F#m Em

Each time I think I'm close to knowing

G D

She keeps on growing

Asus4 A D

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Verse 2

G Gm

Sleep in our eyes

D F#m

Her and me at the breakfast table

G Gm

Barely awake

D F#m

I let precious time go by

G Gm

Then when she's gone

D F#m

There's that odd melancholy feeling

G A D

And a sense of guilt I can't deny

Pre-Chorus

G A/C# D F#

What happened to the wonderful adventures

G A D

The places I had planned for us to go

D/F#

(Slipping through my fingers all the time)

G A/C#

Well some of that we did

D

But most we didn't

Asus4 Dsus4 D

And why I just don't know

Chorus

G D

Slipping through my fingers all the time

F#m Em

I try to capture every minute

G D

The feeling in it

Asus4 A D

Slipping through my fingers all the time

G D

Do I really see what's in her mind

F#m Em

Each time I think I'm close to knowing

G D

She keeps on growing

Asus4 A D

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Verse

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture

G A D

And save it from the funny tricks of time

Slipping through my fingers

Solo

Slipping through my fingers

All the time
