Slow Down Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Close the door and take the stairs
Up or down, ups and downs
Don't pretend, you've never been there

You kiss me like an over dramatic actor
Who's starving for work
With one last shot to make it happen

You won the role, you've played your part
You've been cordially invited but I'm not impressed
And I'm definitely not excited

'Cause the film has a shallow budget
And the writer's subject script isn't any deeper
So dive right in

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
Hey you, who are you kidding?
I'm not like them, I won't buy it

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
Hey you, who are you kidding? Don't quit 'til 47
Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster

Take back everything you ever said girl
You never meant a word of it
You never did

Take back everything you said girl
You never meant a word of it
You never did

She said, "Alright, alright slow down"
Oh no, oh no we won't
'Cause I regret everything that I said

To ever make her feel like she was somethin' special
Or that she ever really mattered
Or did she ever really matter?

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills and you
Who are you kidding?
I'm not like them, I won't buy it

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
Just don't count on the summer, don't quit 'til you're 47
Then we'll turn it up and we'll play a little faster

Take back everything you ever said girl
You never meant a word of it
You never did

Take back everything you said girl
You never meant a word of it
You never did

I'm not sayin' that I'm not breakin'
Some hearts tonight, girl

Oh, I'm not sayin' that I'm not breakin'
Some hearts tonight, girl
Alright, alright, slow down

Take back everything you ever said girl
You never meant a word of it
You never did

Take back everything you said girl
You never meant a word of it
You never did

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
Hey you, who are you kidding?
I'm not like them, I won't buy it

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
Hey you, who are you kidding?
I'm not like them, I won't buy it

Hollywood hills and suburban thrills
Hey you, who are you kidding?
I'm not like them, I won't buy it
