    LYRICS :

    [ Verse 1]

    life, i dont know what it means,
    all i know is when its over you free,
    see my boy caught a bullet inside his chest im just hoping he breathes, I'm just hoping he was lucky as me,
    but i really hate to say it man hope just ain't enough sometimes, I be moving fast be pressing my luck sometimes my grandpa passed away I never got to say my goodbyes, wish i could see him again even for just one time and i promise, i wont say im busy or make excuses and i wont show up late and leave early like i used to, and i wont take the words you said for granted i would use em, but why we never show how much we love em till we lose em, slow down.

    [Hook: Phora]

    i just think i need to slow down, i just think i need to it slow it down (x2)

    you feel, what i feel, i think im moving way to fast, lately, fast lately, homie i been trynna slow down.

    homie i been trynna slow down, homie i been trynna slow down, down, down, homie i been trynna slow down.


    [Verse 2: Phora]

    yeah, to me you worth more than the stars and the planets, this for all the times that i took you for granted, this for the times i aint never had time, missed you on your birthday i know that we planned it, i was too into myself to love those around me, drowning in my loneliness hoping it don't surround me, swallow me whole, and drown me, I lost myself and you found me, you the only one that pushed me when everybody would doubt me, since a kid momma, had my back through all the crazy shit i did momma, you responsible for everything this is momma, but i been really trynna change the way i live, ima, the way i live, ima show you i appreciate you take the time, but you know this son of yours just couldn't wait to shine, she said you so focused on taking on the world that you forgot your hometown, you been moving too fast you really need to slow down, and thats real.

    [Hook: Phora]

    i just think i need to slow down, i just think i need to it slow it down (x2)
    you feel, what i feel, i think im moving way to fast, lately, fast lately, homie i been trynna slow down.
    homie i been trynna slow down, homie i been trynna slow down, down, down, homie i been trynna slow down.

          Yeah, life, I don't know what it means
          All I know is: when it's over you're free
          See my boy caught a bullet inside his chest
          I'm just hoping he breathes
          I'm just hoping he was lucky as me
          But I really hate to say it, man
          Hope just ain't enough sometimes
          I've been moving fast, be pressing my luck sometimes
          My grandpa passed away, I never got to say my goodbyes
          Wish I could, see him again even for just one time
          And I promise, I won't say "I'm busy" and make excuses
          And I won't show up late and leave early like I used to
          And I won't take the word you said for granted
          I would use them, But why we never show
          How much we love them til' we lose them?
          Slow Down..

          I just think I need to slow down
          I just think I need to slow it down
          I just think I need to slow down
          I just think I need to slow it down
          You feel, what I feel
          I think I'm moving way too fast
          Lately, fast lately
          Homie, I've been trynna' slow down, slow down
          Homie, I've been trynna' slow down, slow down
          Homie, I've been trynna' slow down, slow down
          Down, down
          Homie I've been trynna' slow down, slow down

          Yeah, to me you worth more than the stars and the planets
          This for all the times that I took you for granted
          This for all the times I ain't never had time
          Missed you on your birthday, I know that we planned it
          I was too into myself to love those around me
          Drowning in my loneliness hoping it don't surround me
          Swallow me whole and drown me
          I lost myself and you found me
          You the only one that pushed me
          When everybody would doubt me
          Since a kid mama
          Had my back through all the crazy shit I did mama
          You responsible for everything this is mama
          But I been really trynna change the way I live, Imma'
          They way I live, Imma'
          Show you why I appreciate you, take the time
          But you know the son of yours just couldn't wait to shine
          She said: "You so focused on taking on the world that you forgot your hometown
          You been moving too fast, you really need to slow down"
          And that's real..

          I just think I need to slow down
          I just think I need to slow it down
          I just think I need to slow down
          I just think I need to slow it down
          You feel, what I feel
          I think I'm moving way too fast
          Lately, fast lately
          Homie, I've been trynna' slow down, slow down
          Homie, I've been trynna' slow down, slow down
          Homie, I've been trynna' slow down, slow down
          Down, down
          Homie, I've been trynna' slow down, slow down

                                        I'm in tears right now.... two weeks ago my grandpa had a heart attack. He's my world... his health is going down hill so quickly. He's only 63. He's been a great father figure for me when my dad was gone or in jail. He helps me so much to be successful in this stressful world. Not being able to see him everyday would crush me. I'm only 14 y/o there is so much more I need to experience with my Papa. I'm terrified I won't be able to be given away or dance with him in my wedding; or even my quince. Ever since I could remember I would sit down with him and listen to songs I could dance with him to. There is so many... so many reminders if I lose him. So many hours spent watching movies; from black and white to colored. So many meanings and tears behind each movie I cherish with him. I should've spent more time with him... so much time wasted when I was out with friends or doing sports. I could've called when I was away... but I didn't. Now all I can do is give him a hug and kiss and say "Bye Papa, I love you" every time I leave the house. Terrified it'll be the last time I see him. I've always made sure the last thing I do was say those words to him when either one of us leave because you never when it's the last time you see someone. Now it breaks my heart. I don't want to cry in front of him. I don't want it to be the last time I say goodbye. Today when I left I was trying to talk to him as much as possible before walking out that door. I wanted to keep hugging him and telling him I loved him to almost make up for the times I didn't. I wish I didn't stress him out like I do. I can't forgive myself for what's happening. I know no one is going to read all of this or even glance at my comment but this song really hits me hard. I just thought maybe I should type this out instead of being trapped with my thoughts. I will pray for him, all of you, and your families. This pain is something no one should have to experience.
