CAPO 1 !!

(VERSE) (A) Schoolbag in (Am/C) hand
She (E) leaves home in the (C#m) early morning
(A) Waving (Am/C) goodbye
With an (E) absent-minded (G#m) smile
(A) I watch her go (Am)
With a (E) surge of that (C#m) well-known sadness
(A) And I have to sit (Bsus4) down (B) for a while (E) 
The (A) feeling that I'm (B/D#bass) loosing her (E) forever  (G#)
And (A) without really (B) entering her world (E) 
I'm (A) glad whenever I (B/D#bass) can share her (E) laughter
That (Bsus4) funny (B) little girl (Esus4)  (E) 

(CHORUS) (E) Slipping through my (A6) fingers all the (E) time
I try to (G#m) capture every (F#m) minute
The (B) feeling in (E) it
Slipping through my (Bsus4) fingers (B) all the (E) time
Do I really (A6) see what's in her (E) mind
Each time I (G#m) think I'm close to (F#m) knowing
She (A) keeps on (E) growing
Slipping through my (Bsus4) fingers (B) all the (E) time

(VERSE) Sleep in our eyes
Her and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake
I let precious time go by
Then when she's gone
There's that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of guilt
I can't deny
What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go (slipping through my fingers all the time)
Well some of that we did
But most we didn't
And why I just don't know


(A) Sometimes I wish that I (B) could freeze the (E) picture (G#)
And (A) save it from the (B) funny tricks of (E) time 
(E/G#bass) Slipping through my (A) fing(B) ers  (E)

Schoolbag in hand
She leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded (G#m) smile
