I Watch You Slip Away
Split Seven Ways Lyrics


I'm tapping on your window pane,
Full of fiendish spark
We've got things to talk about tonight
Be still my beating heart
Because I can barely hear you talk
Oh, they say that love is blind,
Our plans may all come to naught, but still
We know what this implies

But I watch you slide into the darkness
I watch you slip away
You fall further from me, are you so heartless?
I watch you slip away.
You're beautiful but you've gone too far
I can't drag myself away
I want to keep you but I don't know how
I can make you stay
Oh, I watch you slip away

You scare me far too much sometimes
There's something in your face
But it's all for the greater good
To keep the Muggles in their place…
I've got rights and responsibilities
But I'd abandon them for you
With all the pressure put on me
What else can I do?
Oh, what else can I do?

But I watch you slide into the darkness
I watch you slip away
You fall further from me, are you so heartless?
I watch you slip away.
You're beautiful but you've gone too far
I can't drag myself away
I want to keep you but I don't know how
I can make you stay
Oh, I watch you slip away

I know this has got to end
Your aims are so obscene
Just how long can I pretend
That the end justifies the means?

Your past is full of atrocities
Will your future be that way?
I lie to myself, say that you can change
But I can't keep the truth at bay
You're beautiful but you've gone too far
I can't drag myself away
I want to help you but I don't know how
This'll never be okay
And I watch you slip away
