Lyrics
Slow Down

Did it ever once occur to you
What other folks might be going through
When you move the goalposts every day
Can’t understand why you act that way

This constant meddling has got to stop
The change in pressure makes my ears go ‘pop’
You’ve got too many balls up in the air
And from my perspective it just ain’t fair

Slow down
Slow down
Just slow down
Slow down

It’s a sad reflection of your state of mind
Hopelessly hooked on this perennial grind
As day after day you expect more than the best
A hundred and ten percent just to pass your test

Work from nine ‘till five is a thing of the past
It’s eleven-fifteen and I’m still not the last
To get out of this place and join the queue
For the last train home to get away from you

Slow down
Just slow down
Slow down
Slow down

[Instrumental break]

I’ve had it up to here, my driven friend
You’re slowly driving us all, around the bend
Why don’t you stop right now and take my advice
Before you pay the ultimate price

Slow down
Just slow down
Slow down
Slow down

Born and bred in Liverpool and like most kids from that place got my first guitar as a young teenager (in the late 60s). I've been dabbling with a guitar or two ever since and couldn't imagine life without one. I've never had any musical training (pr... [see more]
