Slow Down

Album: Revelation (2008)
  • Tell me to slow down if you think
    That the road that I'm ons' goin' nowhere
    Tell me to slow down if you know
    That I'm goin' to fast for my own good.
    Tell me to slow down
    If the way is leadin' to a dead end
    Tell me to slow down turn around
    Let me change the way I'm goin'.

    Oh, I don't want to let go
    Of all the things that I know
    Are keepin' me away from my life.
    Oh, I don't want to slow down.
    No, I don't want to look around,
    But I can't seem to work it out,
    So help me God.

    Tell me to slow down if you see
    That I'm runnin' to fast in the wrong race.
    Tell me to slow down if you think
    That I can't keep up with my own pace.
    Tell me to slow down cause you know
    If there's ever any question
    Tell me to slow down, turn around
    Let me change my direction.

    Oh, I don't want to let go
    Of all the things that I know
    Are keepin' me away from my life.
    Oh, I don't want to slow down.
    No, I don't want to look around,
    But I can't seem to work it out,
    So help me God.

    Oh tell me to slow down
    Oh tell me to slow down now
    Oh tell me to slow down

    Oh, I don't want to let go
    Of all the things that I know
    Are keepin' me away from my life.
    Oh, I don't want to slow down.
    No, I don't want to look around,
    But I can't seem to work it out,
    So help me God.

    Oh, I don't want to slow down.
    No, I don't want to look around,
    But I can't seem to work it out,
    So help me God.

    Tell me to slow down.
    Tell me to slow down.
    Tell me to slow down. Writer/s: ROGER ATHELSTON DRAKES, DIANE JOSEPH, PAUL POWELL
