In 1981 this song, from "The Visitors" album was released as a single, but only in Japan and was the only song, as there was no recording on the B-side, just the picture of the group standing on a Coca-Cola logo. Now that's strange.

Slipping Through My Fingers Lyrics

Schoolbag in hand - she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye - with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go - with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while

The feeling that I'm losing her - forever
And without really entering her world
I'm glad whenever I can share her laughter - That funny little girl

Slipping through my fingers all the time I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see what's in her mind each time I think I'm close to knowing
She keeps on growing slipping through my fingers all the time

Sleep in our eyes - her and me at the breakfast table
Barely awake - I let precious time go by
Then when she's gone - there's that odd melancholy feeling
And a sense of guilt - I can't deny

What happened to the wonderful - adventures
The places I had planned for us to go -- (Slipping through my fingers all the time)
Well some of that we did - but most we didn't - And why - I just don't know

Slipping through my fingers all the time I try to capture every minute
The feeling in it slipping through my fingers all the time
Do I really see what's in her mind each time I think I'm close to knowing
She keeps on growing slipping through my fingers all the time

Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
And save it from the funny tricks of time
Slipping through my fingers

Slipping through my fingers all the time

Schoolbag in hand - she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye - with an absent-minded smile
