"Speak Slow" as written by and Tegan Quin Sara Quin....
You wait up for me I don't wake up for you
Would you like the company or are you sick of me
When your love lets you go you only want love more
Even when love wasn't what you were looking for

Speak slow, tell me love where do we go... ah ah
Where do we go...ah ah, where do we go
Break down plead your case I don't know what to say
I leave my heart all this pain and now I'm at it all again

On these streets that I leave for weeks on end who's to blame
When you want love doesn't matter what you're looking for
Speak slow, tell me love where do we go... ah ah
Where do we go... ah ah, where do we go

So far away and I just can't see you I'm
So far along and I just don't need you
I am so ah-alone, so ah-alone
When your love lets you go you only want love more

Even when love wasn't what you were looking for

    General CommentI love this song, it's the first Tegan and Sara I ever heard but now I've added them to my favorites and will probabley go see them in concert soon. Man, does Canada produce some awesome bands or what?

    General CommentThis song is just about someone not letting their love go and then realizing that they want it back just because.

    when your love lets you go
    you only want love more
    even when love's
    not what you were looking for

    They probably didn't want love in that relationship but they want the security and comfort OF a relationship. It doesn't matter what they're looking for, they just want what they had back.

    General CommentDespite the very few (and somewhat repetative) chords in this song, it turned out fabulously. I fell in love with Tegan and Sara hearing them on XM radio, but I have yet to hear them on a local station.

    General Comment"while you're at it why don't you
    sign me up to sell me out" they're being sarcastic here...

    so i think its about someone who sighned them for a record and told them they would be superstars and be famous and all that..and lied to them...?
