Trace Remains

as it starts slipping away
hovering out of the blue
not that it matters today
condolences long overdue

and it comes near
and it goes far
no worse for wear
no worse by far
i can feel it slipping away

tomorrow's just another day
like the one i barely got through
i can't say i'm happy to be
whatever word best defines you

ain't it a shame
ain't that a bum
now that i'm certain
now that i'm wrong
i can feel it slipping away

try to get away but nothing will do
gave it all my best but it's no further use
nothing but a trick merely hidden from view
they just want to suck the life out of you

i can feel it slipping away
and it keeps slipping away
