Story

Eliza: vocals and banjo  Drew Heller: guitar   Dave Pransky: bass   Justin Perkins: drums

 

This might as well be my theme song.  After this first album, I made a record of fast songs about being tired and then thought more deeply about Slow Down.  I need this song, as I do 'get going fast.'  Don't we all?

Lyrics

Slow Down, listen to the wind

Give it some time, it will tell you your mind

Slow down, listen to the wind

Wait with your heart and you’ll move right from the start

 

I get going fast

Sweat slides off of me as I move past

Sometimes my feet won’t touch ground

I lose what I got, I lose what I found

 

Slow Down, listen to the wind

Give it some time, it will tell you your mind

Slow down, listen to the wind

Wait with your heart and you’ll move right from the start

 

We’re taught to run

We’re taught to race

To make our lifelong plans at a high speed pace

Turn yourself into a drill, get you through the walls

And up and over the hill

 

Slow Down, listen to the wind

Give it some time, it will tell you your mind

Slow down, listen to the wind

Wait with your heart and you’ll move right from the start

 

Where you trying to get to?

What’s your heart saying you really want to do?

Give yourself time to know

You’ll go with the wind and not against the flow
