Slow Down

Slow Down (28/12/2010)

I knew a few things about myself
I understand that some people do not
Really care for me
They only see the smiling girl I pretend to be
And I listen to them talk and talk
Wondering why they never stop

Oh, Slow down
Take a deep, slow breath
Do you realise the world around you is beautiful
Do you ever pause to understand
That you are not so blind
You're as worthy as I
To look at the sky

Don't listen to the bullies in your head
Don't think for a single second your pointless
Oh, I'll tell you what
Your bloody perfect to me
Maybe my thoughts don't count
But still I'll say it

Oh, Slow down
Take a deep, slow breath
Do you realise the world around you is beautiful
Do you ever pause to understand
That you are not so blind
You're as worthy as I
To look at the sky

Oh, Slow down
Dive into the ocean
Slow down
Speak your mind
Slow down
Just be yourself
And I'll let the shields fall down
Slow down
Together we'll look at the sky, Oh 

The End
