With a heart so pure
You could fall so quickly
Don’t you dare slow down for me

Were it not for hearts like mine
Calloused thickly
You could fall so easily
(Don’t you dare slow down for me)

You can take everything I have
Just don’t leave my side
No, don’t leave my side

You can take everything I have
Just don’t leave my side
No, don’t leave my side

Cause your words hit like a train
And I can’t ignore it
This moment could be our last
You fall in love
And I’m running after
You move way too fast

But don’t slow down
And don’t let go
Hold me closer now

They say I don’t know how to love the right way
But you make me feel
You make me feel like I do

You can take everything I have
Just don’t leave my side
No, don’t leave my side

Cause your words hit like a train
And I can’t ignore it
This moment could be our last
You fall in love
And I’m running after
You move way too fast

Cause your words hit like a train
And I can’t ignore it
This moment could be our last
You fall in love
And I’m running after
You move way too fast
(Don’t slow down)


Cause your words hit like a train
And I can’t ignore it
This moment could be our last
You fall in love
And I’m running after
You move way too fast
(Don't slow down)

    General CommentI agree with younglovers, but also--there's that classic desperation in his voice... It makes me think he's so blown away by this person who shines so brightly, they're just one of those people that see's the world in a different light that all the rest of us. It feels (to me) like such a refreshing love--it's so new and energetic, it's hard to get into the rhythm of it--"You always hit like a train"--but it's better than anything that's been had before--"and I can't ignore it..."
