[Verse 1]
A
There you go
E                    F
Slipping away into a state of grace
Dm                         A#
I know the look that comes across your face
E                   A
It's so familiar to me

A
Here I am
E                        F
Trying to keep you in my line of sight
Dm                         A#
I'm never certain that you read me right
E                           A
Sometimes you don't want to see

[Chorus]
F#m
Here we are
E                        F#m
Both of us know we're in love
E                      F#m
But that isn't always enough
E                  Bm            E
I never could rise above it all, down I fall

[Verse 2]
            A
But darling there you go
E                    F
Slipping away into a state of grace
Dm                           A#
Granted, this world is not a perfect place
E                             A
Still it's the world that I'm in

A
Here I am
E                              F
Talking while you don't hear a word I say
Dm                              A#
Knowing you're watching me from far away
E                          A
Somewhere that I've never been

[Bridge]
E
Don't you see
Gm                    F#m
You lived a different life than me
Fm                A          E
It don't mean you have to be afraid of how
Bm                  E
We're not the same, don't leave me now

            A
But darling there you go
E             F Dm A# Dm E A
Slipping away

[Chorus]
F#m
How can I
E                         F#m
Get you to stay where you are?
E                       F#m
Keep you from going too far
E                      Bm          E
Holding you here is so hard to do, I'm losing you

            A
And darling there you go
E                    F
Slipping away into a state of grace
Dm                           A#
Drifting away into your sacred place
E                         A
Someplace that I've never been

[Ending]
A
There you go
E          F
Slipping away
Dm            E                A
Slipping away into a state of grace

A
There you go
E          F  E               A
Slipping away into a state of grace
Dm              A#  E                 A
