"Slow Down" as written by and Logan Christian/burton Laflotte....
I learned to breathe underwater,
when I turned nine.
I had to learn how to save myself.
I'm still alive.

How does it feel to be 20? Or 25?
Well I can hardly remember, I just survive.

So when we met I was startled, I finally awoke.
Blew out a breath full of water now that I'm not alone.
I got a taste of the surface; I can't let it go.
I used to sink but now I float.

Slow down, stop rushing this.
It feels like nothing else matters now.
Love and lust can co-exist, so let's take our time.

You said, "The days are getting shorter." And you were right.
'Cause all the stars were appearing, they multiplied.

And so the more surrendered, the farther we fell.
It was either you or the moment, or both that I held?
As we descended on each other it got harder to tell,
and now I can’t control myself.

Hearts that race and breath that stains.
Covers ours to wear.
So when we wake up underwater, I'll be there.

    General CommentLove this song too.
    It's amazing how much they've changed over the past few years, since they let out the Variations EP and I saw them perform in a small ass church.
