Luke Bryan wrote this song in a writing session with Luke Laird ("Head Over Boots
") and Rodney Clawson ("May We All
," "You Look Like I Need a Drink
"); it's about slowing down and experiencing the moment. The singer told Taste of Country
that he had his two sons, Thomas Boyer and Tatum Christopher, in mind.
"I'm just so proud about how we used a simple word, fast, and we tied the verses in, and that second verse, how we brought in how the parents were saying we were falling in love too fast, but we still made it work, and how life does move too fast," Bryan said. "Every time I come home, you know, my boys are bigger and starting to throw me around the house a little more, and one day I'll snap my fingers, and you'll wish you could've froze time a little bit."
