Rose Tattoo – Slipping Away Lyrics

Heartache yearning, my soul preparing
‘Til it’s time to go
You look at me you never see
The pain I’m going through
Nightmare dreams are silent screams
As I reach out to you
I’m going down
When did it happen? Aching, breaking, shiver shaking
Desperate to survive
Tortured, tearing, backward sliding
More dead than alive
There comes a time when you’re so blind
To those who hold your dear
Their love is strong you’re so far gone
You don’t see their tears
You’re going down
Lifetime learning, question burning
Does anybody know? When did you feel me slipping away
I’m slippin’ away When did you feel me slipping away
Teenage queens in magazines say it’s all right to sleaze
Dull vacant eyes and shapeless thigts, you gotta thin to please
Poppin those pills, drinking your fill won’t bring you happy hour
Then you’re alone and no one’s home
When all that shit turns sour
When did it happen? When did you feel me slipping away
I’m slippin’ away
Darkness is my only friend
I shut the light of day
When did it happen?
