"Slow" as written by and John Paul Lawler....
If I had an audience, I'd cover my face
Lock away myself in a lonesome place
If I had a premonition, of how this would be
I would still have begged
and took you home with me
Still have done it all done it hopelessly
and buried myself where no eye could see

Well I lost my heart when my back was turned
if you see it could you let me know
And if you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow

If I had a crystal ball, I still wouldn't see it all
I swear I didn't do it just to make you crawl
And if I had an audience, I'd ask them to leave
How can I give them what I can't receive
How can I pray when I just don't believe
Sometimes it takes all your heart just to breathe

Well I lost my heart when my back was turned
if you see it could you let me know
And if you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow
Well there's nothing that I wouldn't give
in this whole world
To be the man you met long ago
And if you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow
If you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow

Don't let me see, don't linger at my door
Tell me again was it to you I swore
that no one would play
with your heart anymore?

Well I lost my heart when my back was turned
if you see it could you let me know
And if you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow
If you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow
If you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow
If you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow
If you've got to leave me baby
won't you do it slow

    General CommentThis song is literally tearing me apart because it describes a situation close to my heart. It wasn't intentional but the relationship fell apart and he wishes he could go back
