Slow Down

Album: Almost Here (2005)
  • Close the door and take the stairs
    Up or down, ups and downs
    Well, don't pretend you've never been there
    You kiss me like an over-dramatic actor
    Who's starving for work
    With one last shot to make it happen
    You've won the role, you've played your part
    You've been cordially invited
    But I'm not impressed, and I'm definitely not excited
    'Cause the film runs a shallow budget
    And the writer's subject script isn't any deeper
    So dive right in

    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
    Hey you, who are you kidding?
    I'm not like them, I won't buy in
    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
    Hey you, who are you kidding?
    Don't quit 'til 47
    Then we'll turn it up, and we'll play a little faster

    Take back everything you ever said
    You never meant a word of it
    You never did
    Take back everything you said
    You never meant a word of it
    You never did

    She said
    "Alright alright, slow down"
    Oh no, oh no, we won't
    'Cause I regret everything that I said
    To ever make her feel like she was something special
    Or that she ever really mattered
    Or did she ever really matter?

    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
    Hey you, who are you kidding?
    I'm not like them, I won't buy in
    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
    Just don't count on this summer
    Don't quit 'til 47
    Then we'll turn it up, and we'll play a little faster

    Take back everything you ever said
    You never meant a word of it
    You never did
    Take back everything you said
    You never meant a word of it
    You never did

    I'm not saying that I'm not breaking
    Some hearts tonight, girl oh oh
    I'm not saying that I'm not breaking
    Some hearts tonight, girl
    Alright, alright, slow down

    Take back everything you ever said
    You never meant a word of it
    You never did
    Take back everything you said
    You never meant a word of it
    You never did

    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
    Hey you, who are you kidding?
    I'm not like them, I won't buy in

    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
    Hey you, who are you kidding?
    I'm not like them, I won't buy in

    Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
    Hey you, who are you kidding?
    I'm not like them, I won't buy in Writer/s: MICHAEL CARDEN, WILLIAM BECKETT
