"Speed Of Life" as written by and Lisa Kay Simonton Jennifer Nettles....
We drove all night to get to Corpus Christi
My parents slept right through
They never missed me
We were far from sleepin'
When the truth began to creep in
That we weren't goin' home anytime soon


The mornin' light sure took us by surprise
We grabbed our clothes
Watched a beautiful sunrise
We were one together
And we must have talked forever
And it was then and there I realized that

[Chorus]
(And) I don't want to wait even one more night
It's hard to slow it down when it feels so right
Knees buckled, white knuckled
We're holdin' on tight (holdin' on tight)
(We're) travelin' at twice the speed of life
(Yea, yea, yeah yeah)

We worked our way through college waitin' tables
Bought a little white house with a picket fence and cable
I asked if he was ready
To become a Mom and Daddy
And then I found my answer in his eyes
And he said...

[Chorus]

Now, our oldest girl is almost grown
She's got a boyfriend of her own
I heard her sneakin' out with him last night
And if she's anything like me
She's desperate to be wild and free
We know now it's just a matter of time
'Til she says

[Chorus]

    General Commenti think this song is about how life is too fast and u jsut have to take it all in when u can. and that is totally true u have to take in what live gives u when u get it because live doesnt last forever or slow done when u want it to it keeps going.

    i love sugarland and all their songs and this is jsut another great song. i hope u love them just as much.
