Rushing and racing and running in circles
Moving so fast I'm forgetting my purpose
Blur of the traffic is sending me spinning
Getting nowhere

My head and my heart are colliding chaotic
Pace of the world I just wish I could stop it
Try to appear like I've got it together
I'm falling apart

Save me
Somebody take my hand and lead me
Slow me down
Don't let love pass me by
Just show me how
Cause I'm ready to fall

Slow me down
Don't let me live a lie
Before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

Sometimes I fear that I might disappear
In the blur of fast forward I falter again
Forgetting to breathe
I need to sleep
I'm getting nowhere

All that I've missed I see in the reflection
Pass me while I wasn't paying attention
Tired of rushing, racing and running
I'm falling apart

Tell me
Oh won't you take my hand and lead me
Slow me down
Don't let love pass me by
Just show me how
Cause I'm ready to fall

Slow me down
Don't let me live a lie
Before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

Just show me
I need you to slow me down
Slow me down
Slow me down

The noise of the world is getting me caught up
Chasing the clock and I wish I could stop it
Just need to breathe
Somebody please
Slow me down

    My friend played this song for me when I was going through a hard time in my life where a guy I liked a lot told me he wasn't ready to move forward in our relationship. Even though I was heartbroken, this song helped.
    This song is about someone who is so caught up, not only in a hectic lifestyle, but a relationship which is moving to fast for the place both people are at in their lives. It tells the person to slow down and think about where they are going and what they are doing in their life--to enjoy life for awhile. "don't let love pass me by" refers to the relationship. By this she means to slow down and realize if its meant to be it will happen, but don't ruin your chances by trying to rush into it at the wrong time.

    I have only recently heard this song but to me it means a lot already, when i was younger i was the laughing stock of my class, i used to be bullied so much i felt as if i had to run from it, i didn't have many friends and this song for me represents that. Because i was running away from my problems i found it difficult to realise that there were people who cared for me and wanted to be my friends. I am planning on doing my dance solo to this as it has such an emotional impact for me.
