02. Slow Down

by Third Day


Tell me to slow down
If you think that the road that Iím on is going nowhere
Tell me to slow down
If you know that Iím going too fast for my own good
Tell me to slow down
If the way is leading to a dead end
Tell me to slow down
Turn around, let me change the way Iím going

Oh, I donít want to let go
Of all the things that I know
Are keeping me away from my life
Oh, I donít want to slow down
No, I donít want to look around
But I canít seem to work it out
So help me, God

Tell me to slow down
If you see that Iím running too fast in the wrong race
Tell me to slow down
If you think that I canít keep up with my own pace
Tell me to slow down
ĎCause you know if thereís ever any question
Tell me slow down
Turn around, and Iím changing my direction

Behind the Song:
ďThis is one of our favorite songs and it was one of Howardís favorite songs, but he wasnít willing to just let it go. He kept on pushing. The song started out in the past tense and the chorus and said ďYou taught me to slow down. You taught me to turn around. You taught me to be still, and know that youíre God.í He challenged that. He said, ĎYou know, hereís the problem with Christian music for me: You guys always talk about how you used to have problems and you met God and now your life is better and itís all in the past tense. Guess what? I donít care. I donít care because Iím going through something right now and I canít relate because you already have your life figured out!í He challenged that and itís a sting, but we pushed through and the song moved to the present tense. It moved the struggle to the present tense and it became more of a conversation.Ē Ė Tai Anderson (Third Day)
