Slow down and just live for a while
You don't get hurt if you give 'em a smile
'Cause here's an invisible sun
Covered by storm clouds on the run
Slow down, just look 'round and stare
At ghosts in the mirror that aren't really there
And if you're so happy,
Why are you still so afraid?
Blow the dandelions, make one wish
Swim with the birds and fly with the fish
Thinking 'bout secrets you never did hear
Stop the tears…
Slow down, it's hard to belong
When you keep on moving, and isn't this wrong?
So lost and alone, so you keep on trying
Just a girl with so many dreams
But just so many gaps in-between
The house is so empty, and she never really does
Slow down, it's gonna be alright
Wide plastic smile so beautiful bright
Why does nobody see
That she isn't this strong or that brave?
Slow down, just close your eyes
And let the dreams come to surround you with lies
Guess I never did really grow out of the habit of flight…
So slow down…It's gonna be all right.
