Close the door and take the stairs
Up or down, Upside down
Don't pretend you've never been there
Kiss me like an overdramatic actor
You're starving for work
With one last shot to make it happen

You won the role, you've played your part
You've been cordially invited
But I'm not impressed
And I'm definately not excited
Cause the film has a shallow budget
And the writer's subject script isn't any deeper
So dive right in

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills and you
Who are you kidding?
I'm not like them
I won't buy it
Hollywood hills and suburban thrills and you
Who are you kidding?
Quit your forty-seven
Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster

Take back everything you ever said
You never meant a word of it
You never did
Take back everything you said
You never meant a word of it
You never did

She said, 'Alright, alright slow down'
Oh no, oh no we won't
Cause I regret everything that I said
To ever make her feel like she was something special
Or that she ever really mattered
Or did she ever really matter?

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills and you
Who are you kidding?
I'm not like them
I won't buy it
Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
Just don't count on the summer
Quit your forty-seven
Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster

Take back everything you ever said
You never meant a word of it
You never did
Take back everything you said
You never meant a word of it
You never did

I'm not sayin' that I'm not breakin' some hearts tonight, girl
Oh, I'm not sayin' that I'm not breakin' some hearts tonight, girl

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
You'll take this time to be notified [x2]

Take back everything you ever said
You never meant a word of it
You never did
Take back everything you said
You never meant a god damn word of it
You never did

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills and you
Who are you kidding?
I'm not like them
I won't but it
Hollywood hills and suburban thrills and you
Who are you kidding?
I'm not like them
I won't buy it

    General CommentThis is the earlier version of "Slow Down" with some different lyrics, its not the same exact thing! Chill out! Just because its going by another name doesn't mean you have to have a heart attack over it!


    And there are lyrics for "Slow Down" up too...so why are you bitching?

    General CommentCheck out Season too, and Classifieds. You can get a mixtape at thescout.net with Classifieds on it, it starts playing about 7:45 into it or so. You can IM me for it without all the other stuff though, my screenname's bunnyxdemon.
