Eryn Allen Kane: Slipping

Chicago-based artist Eryn Allen Kane has been slowly making noise on the music scene—she’s put in work with everyone from Chance The Rapper & The Social Experiment, Towkio, Saba, and more, so far. The approach is very minimalistic, and serves the main instrument in the best of ways. Her stunning voice, won’t leave you un-phased.

Eryn Allen Kane: Slipping Lyrics:
Slipping, slipping, slipping away
I can tell you’re not content and you don’t want to tell me that
You’re slipping, slipping, slipping away
Like a bud that never bloomed
And now can’t stand the heat of June
Little light you’ve lost your glow, you just cry and no one knows
That love isn’t your friend, your friends are gone
But I say, it’s okay, it’s okay

Indigenous time ‘fore I drown and there’s one more open seat, trusting me
Take my hand, there’s a big old world and I’ll show you everything you wanna see, see, see
Anything you wanna see

Drifting, drifting, drifting away
You can tell I’m not content, but bitten nails prove some relent
I’m drifting, drifting, drifting away
Like a tide under the moon, low and silently at tune
I thought that I would find your glow
I just cry because I know
That love is your friend, and that friend is me
But you never noticed a friend

Indigenous time ‘fore I drown and there’s one more open seat, trusting me
Take my hand, there’s a big old world and I’ll show you everything you wanna see, see, see
Anything you wanna see
Anything you wanna see

Blue bird locked up inside of me, I can’t let you be free
So for now I’ll keep you tucked away with memories of willow trees
Hopelessly defenseless, love has left us breathless
Tell me you’re a liar, we will never win this
I chased away your demons, you’re always in the deep end
There’s a black hole in my heart and it won’t stop

So I’m slipping, I’m slipping, I’m slipping away.
