Lyrics for Slip Away by Mumford & Sons:

Verse 1
No more questions no more lies
Do a deal for no surprises
Cos you will never slip away
Slip away in the night

Verse 2
Waiting patient for the sun to rise
It reveals a stoic smile
But you will never slip away
Slip away in the night

Chorus
You'll find me waiting here for you
Come and suffer here
You'll find me holding my breath for you
Come and suffer here

Verse 3
In the violence of a mind's eye
We had a deal for no surprises
Cos you will never slip away
Slip away in the night

Refrain
But you're not yourself
I know you better than you
But you're not yourself
I know you better than you

Chorus
You'll find me holding my breath for you
It's never more than I can take
I wouldn't have it any other way
You'll find me on my knees for you
It's never more than I can take
I wouldn't have it any other way

Break
Go gently now
Be still
And love
Go gently now
Be still
And love
Go gently now
Be still

Chorus
You find me holding my breath for you
It's never more than I can take
I wouldn't have it any other way
You'll find me on my knees for you
It's never more than I can take
I wouldn't have it any other way

Outro
But you're not yourself
I know you better than you
And you're not yourself
I know you better than you

Song Facts

The song seems written from the perspective of a person to their wayward loved one, and one may even be able to to stretch it to say from God to a sinner. The writer seems to know how their undying love, loyalty, and faith in the other could be perceived as too good to be true. This song seems to express that, “No matter what happens, I’m going to stick beside you through thick and thin.”
