Alejandro Escovedo – Slow Down lyrics

Let me take your hand,
Something I wanna show
Close your eyes,
And you can hear
The music in the wind
Out on the pier,
That's the acatina sol revere?
I don't know
What this means to you,
But it was everything to me

I was, free as the sun,
Shining on our faces
Free as the light
That comes down
From some other places
Slow down, slow down,
It's moving much too fast
I can't live in this moment,
When I'm tangled in the past

Won't you take my coat,
Baby won't you wear it
There's so much
I wanna share with you,
Every little thing I am
Put your arms around my body,
Feel your skin against my skin
This is where my life begins,
Begins again with you

The past is gone,
But it still lives inside of me
Hold on tight,
As we slip into this revelry
Slow down, slow down,
It's moving much too fast
I can't live in this moment
When I'm stumbling
Through the past
Slow down, slow down,
Yeah, it's too fast
Loving this moment,
Gotta let the other pass

Slow down,
It's too fast
Live in this moment,
But I'm tangled in the past
