[Verse 1]
Bb           Bbm              F
Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Bb         Bbm         F             Am
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
Bb          Bbm       F             Am
I watch her go with a surge of that well known sadness
Bb            C              F
And I have to sit down for a while
    Bb               C          F       Am
The feeling that I'm losing her forever
    Bb             C            F
And without really entering her world
    Bb            C               F
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter
     C            Fsus F
That funny little girl

[Chorus]
                    Bb      Bbm     F
Slipping through my fingers all the time
         Am            Gm
I try to capture every minute
    Bb      F
The feeling in it
                    C               F
Slipping through my fingers all the time
            Bb         Bbm    F
Do I really see what's in her mind
            Am                 Gm
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
    Bb       F
She keeps on growing
                    C               F
Slipping through my fingers all the time

[Verse 2]
Bb           Bbm           F         Am
Sleep in our eyes, her and me at the breakfast table
Bb      Bbm        F                Am
Barely awake I let precious time go by
Bb              Bbm                F        Am
Then when she's gone, there's that odd melancholy feeling
Bb             C             F
And a sense of guilt I can't deny
     Bb              C         F          Am
What happened to the wonderful adventures
    Bb           C                 F
The places I had planned for us to go
Bb                    C                F
Well, some of that we did, but most we didn't
    C                 Fsus F
And why, I just don't know

[Chorus]
                    Bb      Bbm     F
Slipping through my fingers all the time
         Am            Gm
I try to capture every minute
    Bb      F
The feeling in it
                    C               F
Slipping through my fingers all the time
            Bb         Bbm    F
Do I really see what's in her mind
            Am                 Gm
Each time I think I'm close to knowing
    Bb       F
She keeps on growing
                    C               F
Slipping through my fingers all the time

[Verse 3]
    Bb                C                  F       Am
Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
    Bb               C               F
And save it from the funny tricks of time
                    Bb Bbm F
Slipping through my fingers

[Solo]
Bb Bbm  F    Am    Gm
Bb F    C    F
C   F   Am   Gm
Bb  F
                    C               F
Slipping through my fingers all the time
Bb           Bbm              F           Am
Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Bb         Bbm         F             Am
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
