Slipping Through Their Fingers

Schoolbag in hand, we leave home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
You watch us go with a surge of that well known sadness
And you have to sit down for a while
The feeling that we’re leaving here forever
Warm thoughts are really entering our minds
We’re glad that we’ve enjoyed our time at infants
Where everyone’s so kind 

Slipping through their fingers all the time
They try to capture every minute
The feeling in it
Slipping through their fingers all the time

Do they really see what's in our mind
Each time they think they’re close to knowing
We keep on growing
Slipping through their fingers all the time 

Sleep in our eyes, you and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake you let precious time go by
Then when we’ve gone, there's that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of sadness by and by
We had some really wonderful adventures
The places they had planned for us to go
And, most of what we did, was awe inspiring
And how? Well you should know. 

Slipping through their fingers all the time
They try to capture every minute
The feeling in it

Slipping through their fingers all the time.

Do they really see what's in our mind
Each time they think they’re close to knowing
We keep on growing
Slipping through their fingers all the time 

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
……instrumental ……..
Schoolbag in hand, we leave home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile.
