"Slow Down" as written by and Day,leslie....
an actress
sooner the better for me
you should know by now
i’m not your friend
you’re ravelled up
take some time to come undone
you look so tired
i know your type
you storm out
and tear the walls
the portraits down
it’s what you wanted
it’s how we are

take it or leave it
slow down slow down
i can stay awake for you
if you can stay awake for me
you’re broken to break down
slow down slow down
i’m not so sure
so wait and see

i wake up
girlfriend i’m on your floor
you should know by now
i’m not so mad
it’s go time
you’re barely dressed
but fully on
your painted eyes
you look so tired

i don’t think i can trust love anymore

    General Commentthis song is so cool because it's so intense and almost scary ( I mean the chorus)......it's kind of creepy, a little like halloween by dave.....

    General Commentthis song made me want to cry...my ex boyfriends sent me it... i'm not sure completely what it means, i know he thinks i didnt try hard enough in our relationship... also he always told me that i was analyzing us too much, "ravelled up"... howie seems to be saying that he is willing to put alot more into a relationship than the other person, and she ended up betraying him, so he can't trust love anymore

    General Commentat first i thought this song was about a relationship gone bad... but now i think it's about sex. and very raw sex at that. "you're barely dressed/but fully on"

    General Commenti think hes sick of some girls who always seems to put on a face. never really true with him. theres nothing worse than a someone whos fake. and its hard to be whateverone else wants you to be all the time. it makes you tired, i know, ive been there. but these days i see that the only one i have to prove myself to is God and myself. hazel, i dont know you but perhaps u need to be more real?
