"Slow Down Sister" as written by Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, Victoria Shaw and Jason Gambill....
Slow down sister 'cause I just can't love ya
But I just can't get you off my mind

I ain't your fool, I'm not falling
I'm not falling in love with you
I play by my rules
And believe me
You don't want me too close to you

And even though you look so fine
I've been on this broken road one too many times

So slow down sister 'cause I just can't love ya
But I just can't get you off my mind
Oh and Lord knows I need ya
But I just don't want to
Put this rusted heart upon the line

I've heard people say
That I'm crazy
That I'm crazy for avoiding you
But honey I got my freedom
And my reasons
All the reasons for what I do

But that last kiss just did me in
And I don't wanna look at you as something
More than a friend

So slow down sister 'cause I just can't love ya
But I just can't get you off my mind
Oh and Lord knows I need ya
But I just don't want to
Put this rusted heart upon the line

Oh slow down sister
I've got to make you mine
Oh all I'm asking for is just a little time
A little more time

So slow down sister 'cause I just can't love ya
But I just can't get you off my mind
Oh and Lord knows I need ya
But I just don't want to
Put this rusted heart upon the line

Would you slow down, slow down, slow down
Just a one time!

    General CommentThis is a pretty cool song. I think in this song the guy is saying that he's been hurt in the past and doesn't want to go through that again and is trying to avoid love, but someone comes into his life who he thinks he is starting to fall for. However, he tries to resist her, but in the end he says
    "I've got to make you mine
    Oh all I'm asking for is just a little time
    A little more time"
    meaning he's finally willing to take the chance, but he needs some time to prepare himself...or something like that. That's my take.
