Let It Slip Away

Love only stays for a little while baby
That's what I said 'cause I was scared
Too scared to say what you mean to me, baby
Too afraid to show how much I care

Real love, well I couldn't deal
So you just packe dup and said goodbye
I feel love, but now it's too late
And all I do is cry

Chorus:
'Cause I know, that your memory lingers
I think about you night and day
I know, from the tips of my finges
I had your love but I let it slip away
I had your love but I let it slip away

Could've had your heart any day, pretty baby
You could be here now and it's killing me
I'm standing all alone in teh way, pretty baby
In the way of love that was meant to be

Repeat chorus

Real love, well I couldn't deal
So you just packe dup and said goodbye
I feel love, but now it's too late
And all I do is cry

Repeat chorus
