Slow Me Down February 5, 2008

Filed under: life,music — ayumurti @ 4:46 pm

rushing and racing and running in circles
moving so fast I’m forgetting my purpose
blur of the traffic is sending me spinning
getting nowhere

my head and my heart are colliding chaotic
pace of the world I just wish I could stop it
Try to appear like I’ve got it together
I’m falling apart

save me
somebody take my hand and lead me
slow me down
don’t let love pass me by
just show me how
cause I’m ready to fall

slow me down
don’t let me live a lie
before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

sometimes I fear that I might disappear
in the blur of fast forward I falter again
forgetting to breathe
I need to sleep
I’m getting nowhere

all that I’ve missed I see in the reflection
pass me while I wasn’t paying attention
tired of rushing, racing and running
I’m falling apart

tell me
oh won’t you take my hand and lead me
slow me down
don’t let love pass me by
just show me how
cause I’m ready to fall

slow me down
don’t let me live a lie
before my life flies by
i need you to slow me down

just show me
i need you to slow me down
slow me down
slow me down

the noise of the world is getting me caught up
chasing the clock and i wish i could stop it
just need to breathe
somebody please
slow me down

This is a song by Emmy Rossum. Yes, Emmy Rossum the actor. She sings and makes album now. This ‘other’ talent could be seen in The Phantom of the Opera (film), a musical drama by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Anyway, I like this song. It reminds me of Imogen Heap‘s songs and the lyric reminds me of the need to slow down (a little bit, hehe). See her music clip here.
