Here's a real sad song, a song that must be sung
Think about the days when we were young
When we were kids, girl, all you wanted to do was play
But that was then and look at how you're livin' today

It's making me sad and almost brings me tears
But you may just open your eyes when the smoke clears
Girl what happened to the smile that used to gleam
Once upon a time in your life, you used to dream

At the top of the swim team but now you're drownin'
How quick, you change was the most astounding
What you're gonna do is you against the world
You started off being such a sweet girl

Times go by, and years they start to drift
Now you're staring down a deep cliff
You can pour but don't overflow the cup
Girl, you better

Ease up
Slow down
Girl you better change your life around
(Ease up)
Slow down
Ease up
Slow down
Girl you better change your life around
(Ease up)
Slow down

No longer kids, now we're considered as teens
Now we start learning what the letters in life mean
You had a good home living the good life, who knows
You might have made somebody a good wife

How is it wrong when things were just so fine
Now you walk around, with a body with no mind
You entered the gateway to all life choices
Your brain was kinda hollow, so you followed the voices

And you let it mislead ya, it took your body and soul
And it said that it freed ya
Each and every girl like you is a sad case
You always have a pitiful look on your sad face

It could never be the way that it was
But if you are on the dope, then that's what the dope does
If you pour don't overflow the cup
Girl, you better

Ease up
Slow down
Girl you better change your life around
(Ease up)
Slow down
Ease up
Slow down
Girl you better change your life around
(Ease up)
Slow down

And now it comes to the final solution
Robbing and stealing and prostitution
Can't you see that your world is in shambles
Life is a big game with plenty of gambles

So much time, many things that are undone
No longer you 'cause there's you and a young son
You got one, there are girls with two or three
Can't get a fix on 'em, it's driving 'em up a tree

Just stop and think of your young child
Before he winds up as a name in a closed file
As I reminisce and take a look back
I wish I knew what to do, to put you on the right track

But yet, the train that left the station
And your money's on a permanent vacation now
The more you pour, you overflow the cup
Girl, you better

Ease up
Slow down
Girl you better change your life around
(Ease up)
Slow down
Ease up
Slow down
Girl you better change your life around
(Ease up)
Slow down

Ease up
Slow down
Girl you better change your life around
(Ease up)
Slow down
