Slow It Down

Album: The Lumineers (2012)
  • I feel her filth in my bones
    Wash off my hands 'til it's gone
    The walls they're closing in
    With velvet curtains

    Some love was made for the lights
    Some kiss your cheek and goodnight
    Lift up a red high heel
    Lock up your doors with steel

    They're makin' noise in my street
    My blinds are drawn I can't see
    Smashed in my car window
    Didn't touch the stereo

    Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
    Rest your arms, and rest your legs

    Act like you've been here before
    Smile less and dress up some more
    Tie up your scarf real tight
    These boys are out for blood tonight

    Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
    Rest your arms, and rest your legs

    And when she stood, she stood tall
    She'll make a fool of you all
    Don't ask for cigarettes
    She ain't got nothin' left for you

    I never, she never, we never looked back
    That wasn't what we were good at
    And when it came to love
    We were not good enough uh huh

    Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
    Rest your arms, and rest your legs
    Don't you frown when you're feelin' like that
    Only love can dig you out of this Writer/s: Jeremy Fraites, Wesley Schultz
