i was only seventeen, my whole life in front of me with my head down
and just like all those movie screens, i thought that i could live my dreams
but i'm not now
this time, is something that you can't get back

and suddenly i'm twenty-two
my whole world is in my view, i can see it
and just like my mother told me to, i can do anything i wanna do
if i believe it, and i believe it
this time, it's something that you can't get back

slow down everybody's moving far too fast to see where they're going
and if we're feeling hopeless its cause we never notice what we have (what we have)

on and on the story goes, where it stops no one knows but me
on and on the story goes, where it stops no one knows but me

slow down everybody's moving far too fast to see where they're going
and if we're feeling hopeless it's cause we never notice what we have (what we have)

slow down, slow down
slow down, slow down
(on and on the story goes, where it stops no one knows but me)
slow down, slow down
