-------------------
Context

My yesterday's were happy days
And each mem'ry's locked inside
At least I lived a little while
Before I died.

I lived long enough to know
The sweet thrill of your lips
I knew happiness
Right down to my finger tips.

You'll always be a part of me
And though you can't be mine
At least I lived a little while
Before I died...

Hello floraz,

No - it's not slang. I think what the poet is saying is that s/he was so full of happiness, even the tips of his/her fingers were tingling.

Hello, Flora!
No, I agree with Abbie, the writer was filled with happiness down to the tips of his/her fingers; the expression is quite positive. Emotion: smile

Thank you, Abbie.
But is it possible on the contrary? I suppose it might meant that the writer was losing his happiness because the happiness was in the tips of fingers and "he" coudl NOT grasp it.
I would like to put the full context of it here, hope you or other can help me further.

full context

No need to say you're sorry
No need to feel ashamed
If I'm not the one you love
Don't feel you're to blame.

I don't deny it hurts me
And this pain is hard to hide
But at least I lived a little while
Before I died.

I lived long enough to know
The sweet thrill of your lips
I knew happiness
Right down to my finger tips.

You'll always be a part of me
Though you can't be mine
At least I lived a little while
Before I died.

Don't ask me to forget you
'Cause you mean too much to me
I couldn't even if I tried
Too many memories.

My yesterday's were happy days
And each mem'ry's locked inside
At least I lived a little while
Before I died.

I lived long enough to know
The sweet thrill of your lips
I knew happiness
Right down to my finger tips.

You'll always be a part of me
And though you can't be mine
At least I lived a little while
Before I died...

Hey Flora

To me it seems that s/he was very happy and that s/he could feel this happiness
"Right down to my finger tips" suggest me the closeness between his/her body and the joy s/he was living in and the fact that s/he could feel it. " Happiness right down to my finger tips" means to me that s/he could reach this happiness, not the contrary
