Everybody’s in a hurry
Caught up in keeping up with things that don’t matter at all
Searching for shortcuts
To speed things up as if life is not fast enough
What happened to the front porch
Passing the day with the wave to all the cars as they pass
Time stops for no one
We’ve all got one thing in common and it’s that we’re not growing young
Let’s unplug the clocks
Not let another minute pass
Help me find a way to stop this life from moving so fast

Won’t you come and slow the world down
Slow the world down
Slow the world down with me

Don’t think about tomorrow
I make a toast to just enjoy the taste of today
Cause life’s such a short song
We’ve all got to dance to the beat of the second hand slowly counting down
Let’s unplug the clocks
Not let another minute pass
Help me find a way to stop this life from moving so fast

Won’t you come and slow the world down
Slow the world down
Slow the world down with me

I’ll take the quiet of the country or the sand of the beach
A place where telephone lines don’t reach
Far from the city lights that steal the stars from the night sky
And the high rise shadows that block out the sun light
Where the sandcastles sink cause the tide’s always low
There’s always time and it always runs slow

Slow the world down
Slow the world down
Slow the world down
With me
