Slow My Roll

Album: Born Free (2010)
  • There's a new day on the horizon
    There's a rising in the air
    Somewhere somebody's tryin' to tell me they care
    So I'm a lift my head to a new day
    Plant my feet on the ground
    Look at life in a new way and what's goin' down
    'Cause today's the day, I'm gonna take things slow
    Try and change my ways, forgive and let all that go
    Tell the ones I love, what they need to know
    I'm gonna turn around, settle down
    And slow my roll
    Mixin' loneliness and whiskey
    Heartache and cocaine
    Livin' life like a gypsy, lost and ashamed
    So I'm a look to the Lord as my witness
    Rest my hat on a shelf
    Trade these boots for forgiveness and find myself
    'Cause today's the day, I'm gonna take things slow
    Try to change my ways forgive and let all that go
    Tell the ones I love, 'cause they need to know
    I'm gonna turn around, settle down
    And I can't believe sixteen has long since past
    'Cause I'm tired of runnin', and never looking back
    And I won't survive if I live this life this fast, no, no
    And today's the day, I'm gonna take things slow
    Change my ways, forgive and let all that go
    Tell the ones I love, what they need to know
    I'm gonna turn around, settle down
    And slow my roll
    Slow my roll, slow my roll Writer/s: MARLON YOUNG, ROBERT J RITCHIE
