From the recording Frisky or Fair

In cart Not available Out of stock

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
