Heartland Slow Down Lyrics

Last updated: 06/14/2012 11:00:00 AM

sixteen candles on a snow white cake
means sixteen years ago today
those eyes just like her mama's said hello world.

daddys lookin' at her like a miracle there
lookin' back on how God answered their prayers.
with those gatta kiss em rosy cheeks and
a head full of midnight curls
thinkin' time sure flew off with my baby girl.

slow down, just a second ago she was taking her first step
holdin' out two little hands sayin' dont let go yet
before its gone, he'd love to throw the brakes on life
right here right now.
and make it slow down.

he thinks back on the walk to the top of a hill
after taking a wrench to those training wheels
countin' to three
sendin' her on her way.

now hes staring a hole through that long haired boy
whos standin' too close to his bundle of joy.
a father in no hurry for his everything to rush away.
he bites his tongue but he really wants to say

slow down, just a second ago she was taking her first step.
holdin' out two little hands sayin' dont let go yet
before its gone, he'd love to throw the brakes on life
right here right now.
make it slow down.

turn this growin up way to fast around,
before its gone he'd love to throw the brakes on life
right here right now.
and make it slow down.
