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 CommentMy english teacher just turned me on to Copeland and this is by far my favorite song by them so far.

    I got from it that the guy has had many relationship's over the past and the girl has never really been in love. She is falling fast and he doesn't want her to because of one reason or another but a part of him doesn't care and he doesn't want her to slow down. I love it!
