Baby, I've been watching you
Watching everything you do
And I just can't help feeling 
Someone else is stealing 
You away from me

I see it written in your eyes
And you confirm it with your lies
Though the whip you weave can hold me
I would rather that you told me
Where you want to be

Ooh! slipping away from me
Ooh! slipping away from me
And it's breaking me in two
Watching you slipping away
