Liner Notes: 

Was talking to someone about how stressful their life was and this came out.


Slow Down
© 2019 Cindy Prince

Rushing through each day
Like a rabbit in a race
I'd rather be the turtle
If I could just slow down this pace

Mad like dashes here and there
I so need a little peace
The days don't seem long enough
I need some kind of release

I have to slow down
Life is too frantic
The way I'm living
I'm always in a panic
I need to slow...down..

I feel like I'm under attack
The boss is on my back
I'm spread so thin now
I gotta find a way to relax

Instead of flying to my job
I'd rather be far out of reach
Sipping drinks with umbrellas
On some far away sandy beach

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I hear this as a fun song about a serious subject but only because it's not really angry lyric. It seems the problem is under control, almost. The rabbit and turtle in the first verse are a really nice way of telling things. One solution is in the last verse: daydreaming. It always worked for me. Smile

Wonderful message and reminder to all. Really nice change up between verses and chorus.
