these lyrics speak to me


Isabella had a dance competition a few weeks ago and the Junior Company at her studio performed a modern/lyrical dance to these lyrics. I found myself crying by the end. The performance itself was AMAZING but it was the lyrics of the song that really got to me. I don't know much about the origins of the song other than it is performed by Emily Rossum, who played Christine, in the movie version of Phantom of the Opera. It kind of has an enya/efy/christian feel which usually isn't my cup of tea but who knows....I just feel like with so much going on in the world it is hard to stop and just be happy. I am going to go take my valium now...:) I am kidding. I just re read my post and it is kind of depressing.
Love,
Debbie the Downer

PS is it just me or does Rachel Dratch kind of look like she could be my long lost sister?

Slow Me down
Rushing and racing and running in circles
Moving so fast I'm forgetting my purpose
Blur of the traffic is sending me spinning
Getting nowhere

My head and my heart are colliding chaotic
Pace of the world I just wish I could stop it
Try to appear like I've got it together
I'm falling apart

Save me
Somebody take my hand and lead me
Slow me down
Don't let love pass me by
Just show me how
Cause I'm ready to fall

Slow me down
Don't let me live a lie
Before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

Sometimes I fear that I might disappear
In the blur of fast forward I falter again
Forgetting to breathe
I need to sleep
I'm getting nowhere

All that I've missed I see in the reflection
Pass me while I wasn't paying attention
Tired of rushing, racing and running
I'm falling apart

Tell me
Oh won't you take my hand and lead me
Slow me down
Don't let love pass me by
Just show me how
Cause I'm ready to fall

Slow me down
Don't let me live a lie
Before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

Just show me
I need you to slow me down
Slow me down
Slow me down

The noise of the world is getting me caught up
Chasing the clock and I wish I could stop it
Just need to breathe
Somebody please
Slow me down
