Slipping Through My Fingers Lyrics


Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while
The feeling that I'm losing her forever
And without really entering her world
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter
That funny little girl

Slipping Through My Fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it

Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see what's in her mind
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

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
Ans a sense of guilt I can't deny
What happened to the wonderful adventures
The places I had planned for us to go
Well, some of that we did, but most we didn't
And why, I just don't know

Slipping through my fingers all the time
I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it

Slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see what's in her mind
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
She keeps on growing
Slipping through my fingers all the time

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
(Slipping through my fingers)
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile

Slipping Through My Fingers
  • Bjorn Ulvaeus wrote the lyrics after watching his 7 year old daughter Linda go off to school, realizing she was beginning to "Slip through his fingers" and grow up. It's one of his favorites; Ulvaeus said of the song, "Every parent knows that feeling, even if you were with them every waking hour you'd still feel that you were missing something."
  • The lead vocal is performed by Linda's mother (and Bjorn's ex-wife) Angetha. They also had a son named Christian together before their divorce.
