[Verse]
A            Am/C            E           C#m
Schoolbag in hand She leaves home in the early morning
A            Am/C            E             G#m
  Waving goodbye     With an absent-minded smile
A             Am/C      E             C#m
  I watch her go With a surge of that well-known sadness
A             Bsus4    B     E
And I have to sit down for a while

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

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

[Verse]
A            Am/C         E         C#m
Sleep in our eyes Her and me at the breakfast table
A          Am/C      E                G#m
  Barely awake I let precious time go by
A                 Am/C              E        C#m
  Then when she's gone There's that odd melancholy feeling
A              Bsus4   B     E
And a sense of guilt I can't deny
     A               B/D#        E        G#
What happened to the wonderful adventures
    A            B                 E
The places I had planned for us to go 
                                  (slipping through my fingers 
                                   all the time)
     A               B/d#             E
Well some of that we did But most we didn't
    Bsus4 B          Esus4  E
And why I just don't know

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

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

Schoolbag in hand She leaves home in the early morning
A            Am/C            E             G#m
  Waving goodbye     With an absent-minded smile
