Slipping Through My Fingers" is a song written by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson and recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA from their 1981 album The Visitors, with lead vocals by Agnetha Fältskog. The song is about a mother's regret at how quickly her daughter is growing up, and the lack of time they have spent together, as the girl goes to school. The inspiration for the song was Ulvaeus' and Fältskog's daughter, Linda Ulvaeus, who was seven at the time the song was written.
Slipping Through My Fingers (оригинал Abba). Ускользает от меня (перевод ksyahisss). Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning. Она покидает дом ранним утром со школьной сумкой в руке. Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile. И прощается со мной, рассеянно улыбаясь. I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness. Slipping through my fingers all the time. Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture. Порой мне хочется остановить эти мгновения. And save it from the funny tricks of time. И спасти их от обычных штучек времени. Slipping through my fingers.
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.
