Would it be so bad if we just stopped for a while?
And enjoyed the thrills
We could all be still
Let the world just pass us by
But it's all hurry, hurry, run, run
There's no time for this
We want more and more
Got to win
Got to score
So afraid of what we'll miss
And it moves so fast and nothing lasts
This too here will come to pass
Wanna spend my days away from all the fuss
Wanna spend them with you baby but you're in a rush
Slowly, why can't we just take our time?
Slowly, I wish that we could take our time
Yeah we're all getting older
Realize there's no fountain of youth
This is it came quick
It's a lift
It's a bitch
It's your moment
What you gonna do?
Yeah time, would you be a friend?
Ooh bless us with the chance to really grow up
Could you slow it up?
Would you postpone the end
'Cuz you move so fast and nothing lasts
This too here will come to pass
Wanna spend my days away from all the fuss
Wanna spend them with you baby but you're in a rush
Slowly, why can't we just take our time?
Slowly, I wish that we could take our time
'Cuz you move so fast and nothing lasts
This too here will come to pass
And it flies and it rolls like the storms and the thunders
Stop and love me baby
Our days are numbered
Slowly, why can't we just take our time?
(Why can't we just take our time?)
Slowly, now I wish that we could take our time
(Let's go and take our time) Go and take our time
Stop and love me baby (Slowly)
Don't love me baby
Now the days are numbered (I just wanna take our time)
If I take my time
Slow it down (Slowly)
What you're doing with me baby? (I just wanna take our time)
Slowly

    Its a good song, it really inspires couples... And the way it means to me is that the girl is really in love with the guy to the point that she don't want the guy to live nor to hurry up just to spend time to her... How sweet...
