Avril Lavigne: Slipped Away Meaning
Slipped Away Lyrics
Na na na na na
I miss you
Miss you so bad
I don't forget you
Oh it's so sad
I hope you can hear me
I remember it clearly
The day you slipped away
Was the day i found
It won't be the same
Na na na na...

My grandpa rocky died when i was a baby. He only held me once... i never got to see and remember his face... i only see his face from pictures my mom took... we now live six-seven hours away from my moms half of the family... my grandpa rocky is on my moms side of the family... i feel so bad whenever i see him in pictures or hear his name... this song relates to me because my family was in Michigan when he died... the nurses that were at the hospital he was in didnt give a crap he was having a stroke... and when they finally found him laying dead in his hospital bed, they still didnt care... i feel crushed on the inside whenever i hear, see, or think of him... im sorry you are reading my sob story...

The others are saying she created this song because her Grandfather passed while she was on tour, and well. Yeah. That's the reason, I can relate, but in another aspect. My bestfriend committed suicide because she coudln't handle being teased all the time and the bullying got to her. I actually took part in that...I regret it.

this song is about how Avril lost her grandfather and they were really close and so this is very sad. I can relate to this song very well, i feel the same way about my grandparents that died a long time ago (3 years ago), and this is the same about my 2 friends Ray and (will not say name). Also about a youtuber that died from a heart condition, you all may know him, Caleb Logan. I feel like this song is just literally me whenever i think of any people that I've lost throughout the years.... :'(

This song is definitely about her grandfather i saw on the "Under My Skin" album by the lyrics she wrote a message for her grandfather. Not even a month ago my grandmother died and she was very close to me, i sang this song at her funeral... so i can relate... it came so quick.

It's about her grandad dying while she was on tour and she didn't get to say goodbye one last time.I can't really realate though.

As most of the commenters have already said, it's about Avril Lavigne's grandfather dying. I can relate completely; my grandfather died last year and I completely unrelatedly downloaded this song a few months later. After listening to it a few times, I realized just how much I could relate and I started crying because I realized that, just like Avril says in the song, I never really got to say goodbye to my grandfather and I'll always feel guilty about that when I remember him and the day he died. I know my dad can relate even more because when his dad died he was literally in the process of travelling to see him one last time...

this song always makes me cry, because a year ago my grandfather died, and now every word makes sense so i feel Avril's pain. in a week will be my grandpa's memorial. (R.I.P papo \ jimmy t.)
