Capo 1.

[Verse 1]

(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#) loosing her (E) forever  (G#)
And (A) without really (B) entering her world (E) 
I'm (A) glad whenever I (B/D#) can share her (E) laughter
That (Bsus4) funny (B) little girl (Esus4)  (E) 

[Chorus 1]

(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 2]
(same as verse 1)

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

[Chorus 2]

(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#) Slipping through my (A) fing(B) ers  (E) 


A  E  G#m  F#m  F#m  A  E  Bsus4  B  E 
A6 E  G#m  F#m  F#m  A  E

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