  • Here's to you
    You were pink or blue
    And everything I wanted
    Here's to you
    Never sleeping through
    From midnight till the morning
    Had to crawl before you walked
    Before you ran
    Before I knew it
    You were trying to free your fingers from my hand
    'Cause you could it on your own now
    Somehow

    Slow down
    Won't you stay here a minute more
    I know you want to walk through the door
    But it's all too fast
    Let's make it last a little while
    I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly
    I am your biggest fan
    I hope you know I am
    But do you think you can somehow
    Slow down

    Here's to you
    Every missing tooth
    Every bedtime story
    Here's to Barbie cars, light saber wars
    Sleeping in on Sunday
    Had to crawl
    Before you walked
    Before you ran
    Before I knew it
    You were teaching me
    The only thing love can
    Hold hands through it
    When it's scary, you've got me

    But slow down
    Won't you stay here a minute more
    I know you wanna walk through the door
    But it's all too fast
    Let's make it last a little while
    I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly
    I am your biggest fan
    I hope you know I am
    But do you think you can somehow
    Slow down

    Please don't roll your eyes at me
    I know I'm embarrassing
    But someday you'll understand
    You'll hold a little hand
    Ask them if they can

    Whoah
    'Cause it's all too far
    Whoah

    I am your biggest fan
    I hope you know I am
    But do you think you can
    Somehow
    Slow down
