Slow It Down
The Lumineers Lyrics

I feel her filth in my bones
Wash off my hands 'til it's gone
The walls they're closing in
With velvet curtains

Some love was made for the lights
Some kiss your cheek and goodnight
Lift up a red high heel
Lock up your doors with steel
They're makin' noise in my street
My blinds are drawn I can't see
Smashed in my car window
Didn't touch the stereo

Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
Rest your arms, and rest your legs

Act like you've been here before
Smile less and dress up some more
Tie up your scarf real tight
These boys are out for blood tonight

Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
Rest your arms, and rest your legs

And when she stood, she stood tall
She'll make a fool of you all
Don't ask for cigarettes
She ain't got nothin' left for you

I never, she never, we never looked back
That wasn't what we were good at
And when it came to love
We were not good enough uh huh

Slow it down, Angie come back to bed
Rest your arms, and rest your legs
Don't you frown when you're feelin' like that
Only love can dig you out of this

i had a girlfriend, she passed away a few weeks ago, her family moved out the city and the only thing i have left of her is this song, her favorite song, now this song has become my anthem, i hope there's a radio or something in heaven so that she can listen to this song there.

This made me cry, I lost my BF Dec 15th 2019. I feel it

Nester Diaz

She's only dead when forgotten bro. Keep your head up. I cant seem to find the meaning of why I'm still here, but the rest perished. Is what it is, and that's all it can be

The way his voice breaks when he says “slow it down” gets me every time. What a song.


@Mr. Orange that’s so nice

Did you know they recorded this song in one take in wes's apartment? If you listen super close, you can hear birds through the window

Katy Tomkins

I love how it's called slow it down but the song gets faster as it goes on
