Something opened up
the gates again,
I can't control it,
so I rushed right in.
Here comes a mermaid
and a little girl,
Saw open drawers
from around the world.

I got some medals
hanging on my chest,
I've seen some good ones,
but I missed the rest.
Lady luck don't you turn on me,
I'm just a student of your history,
I'm just a student of your history.

Slowpoke I'm gonna run with you,
Wear all your clothes and
do what you do.
Slowpoke
we got some things to find,
When I was faster,
I was always behind,
When I was faster,
I was always behind.

Something pushed back
the curtain again,
The stage is empty
and the crowd is thin.
The song is gentle,
but the song is now.
Something's missing,
but something is found,
Something's missing,
but something is found,
Something's missing,
but something is found.

Slowpoke I'm gonna run with you,
Wear all your clothes and
do what you do.
Slowpoke
we got some things to find,
When I was faster,
I was always behind.
When I was faster,
When I was faster,
I was always behind,
When I was faster......

    General CommentA Neil song with no comments? I can't add insight here, I came to find some.

    Anyhow, I love the line "When I was faster, I was always behind."

    General CommentThe singer has realized he needs to slow down in life. Get out of the fast lane where you can never get ahead. He realized he has missed a lot and has some things to find. He wasn't stopping to smell the roses.

    "Here comes a mermaid
    and a little girl,
    Saw open drawers
    from around the world."

    Here comes his little girl (slowpoke) and he has been busy traveling around the world for work.

    I got some medals
    hanging on my chest,
    I've seen some good ones,
    but I missed the rest.

    Whether actually war battles or just a way of saying he's done his time and been through a lot.

    Slowpoke I'm gonna run with you,
    Wear all your clothes and
    do what you do.
    Slowpoke
    we got some things to find,
    When I was faster,
    I was always behind.

    He is going to play with his little girl in her outfits and she can do whatever she wants to do. They have some things to find together. Later the verse changes to 'I've got some things to find' as well.

    and so on....
