Angie McMahon - Slow Mover Lyrics




Friend, old friend, it's 4:00am
What are we doing in the street?
I don't want to buy fried chicken
I wish that I was going to sleep
And I don't want to kiss you
Underneath that flashing sign
What's the hurry? We're not ready
We've got plenty of time

Maybe you will get married
Maybe fall in love
Could you make me fall asleep
When you're holding me?
Try settin' me on fire
Try settin' me on fire
Try settin' me on

There's someone else but I twist all of
His words and he twists mine
So I'll have to let him go
We sometimes fit, but we always lie
And he thinks we could make it work
But only when he's drunk
You think you could help me swim
But I've already sunk

So maybe you'll get married
Maybe fall in love
'Cause you can't fall asleep
When you're not holding me
Go get set on fire
Go get set on fire
Go get set on...

Friend, I am a slow, slow mover
Friend, I am a slow, slow girl
Trying to be kind, kind, kinder
Crawling in another world

And maybe one day we'll get married
Maybe fall in love
Could you make me fall asleep
When you're holding me?
Try settin' me on fire
Try settin' me on fire
Try settin' me on fire
Try settin' me on fire
Try settin' me on fire
Try settin' me on fire
Try settin' me on...

    Fantastic song. I heard another version, a very simple acoustic like version, definitely her voice, but can't find it anywhere? Does someone know? I liked that version even more. It was used in a movie clip, which is how I came across this song and artist.

  15. Nicholas McArthur

    I was trying so hard to remember how this song went to I could find it but I could only remember the melody, till the "maybe we'll get married, maybe we'll fall in love" just stumbled into my mind, so I searched it and bobs your uncle Fanny's your aunt hear it is!

    Such a beautiful beautiful song. I heard it on JJJ once and I had to download it...love it

  25. Anna Franklin

    My friend voted this for this for Hottest 100 and I was like, "I love this one!" This one goes straight to the playlist!

  26. Andrew From Coogee

    I can't believe how good this is, and I can't believe this could come from an 18 year old. This has the wisdom and feel of ancient wisdom, codified in song. Great lyric, spare and beautiful melody.

    I think you have to be as old as me to realise just how good this is.

    Sorry Angie, I missed putting you in my triple j hottest 100. I wanted to, but didn't know your name or the song title and only found out after submitting. Would have voted it my number 1.

  27. dpdaring1

    Absolute tune, be surprised if this doesn't make the hottest 💯

  32. patty anderson

    fantastic tune well done Angie :)

  33. Chad Verek

    So good. Send this to Nashville.

    Emily Tran

    Make it global. It's mind blowingly good. Reminds me of that aimless dating world of your twenties...

  34. Mr Meow Chow ?

    What an unbelievably beautiful voice and the lyrics...... Just wow👌. I'm in love.

    Jazz Fizz

    Mr Meow Chow ? Right?! How haven’t I heard of her before and why isn’t she more famous yet. Absolutely unbelievable voice.

    Michelle

    Jazz Fizz Angie has taken her time releasing her debut single, but its all worth the wait

  35. Teddy Mercury

    [Verse 1]
    Friend old friend it's 4am
    What are we doing in the street
    I don't want to buy fried chicken
    I wish that I was going to sleep
    I don't want to kiss you underneath that flashing sign
    What's the hurry
    We're not ready
    We've got plenty of time

    [Chorus]
    Maybe we'll get married
    Maybe fall in love
    Could you make me fall asleep
    When you're holding me
    Try set me on fire
    Try set me on fire
    Try set me on

    [Verse 2]
    There's someone else but I twist all of his words and he twists mine
    So I'll have to let him go
    We sometimes fit but we always lie
    He thinks we could make it work but only when he's drunk
    You think you could help me swim but I've already sunk
    So maybe you'll get married
    Maybe fall in love
    Cause you can't fall asleep
    When you're not holding me
    Go get set on fire
    Go get set on fire
    Go get set on

    [Verse 3]
    Friend I am a slow slow mover
    Friend I am a slow slow girl
    Trying to be kind kind kinder
    Crawling in another world

    [Chorus]
    Maybe one day we'll get married
    Maybe fall in love
    Could you make me fall asleep
    When you're holding me
    Try set me on fire
    Try set me on fire
    Try set me on fire
    Try set me on fire
    Try set me on fire
    Try set me on fire
    Try set me on
