Nichole Nordeman - Slow Down Lyrics




Here's to you
You were pink or blue
And everything I wanted
Here's to you
Never sleeping through
From midnight till the morning
Had to crawl before you walked
Before you ran
Before I knew it
You were trying to free your fingers from my hand
'Cause you could do it on your own now
Somehow

Slow down
Won't you stay here a minute more
I know you want to walk through the door
But it's all too fast
Let's make it last a little while
I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly
I am your biggest fan
I hope you know I am
But do you think you can somehow
Slow down

Here's to you
Every missing tooth
Every bedtime story
Here's to Barbie cars, light saber wars
Sleeping in on Sunday
Had to crawl
Before you walked
Before you ran
Before I knew it
You were teaching me
The only thing love can
Hold hands through it
When it's scary, you've got me

Slow down
Won't you stay here a minute more
I know you want to walk through the door
But it's all too fast
Let's make it last a little while
I pointed to the sky and now you wanna fly
I am your biggest fan
I hope you know I am
But do you think you can somehow
Slow down

Please don't roll your eyes at me
I know I'm embarrassing
But someday you'll understand
You'll hold a little hand
Ask them if they can...

Oh oh ho Oooh
'Cause it's all too fast
Oh oh ho Oooh

I am your biggest fan
I hope you know I am
But do you think you can
Somehow
Slow down
Slow down

  5. Love to Learn

    I remember looking at my son the day he was born, knowing he would be the only one I could have, and thought I am going to cherish and be grateful for ever single second with him and I did. It still when too fast but I am so glad I was aware of how many awesome this experience of parenting is and put nothing else before it. So glad I did. He is an awesome grown man now.

    Αυτό είναι για εσένα..
    Ήσουν ροζ ή γαλάζιο
    Και ό,τι πάντα ήθελα.
    Αυτό είναι για εσένα..
    Που δεν κοιμόσουν ποτέ
    Από τα μεσάνυχτα μέχρι το πρωί.
    Έπρεπε να μπουσουλήσεις πριν περπατήσεις
    Πριν τρέξεις
    Πριν το καταλάβω
    Προσπαθούσες να απελευθερώσεις τα δάχτυλά σου από τα δικά μου
    Γιατί με κάποιον τρόπο μπορούσες να τα καταφέρεις και μόνος σου πια.
    Περίμενε
    Δεν θα μείνεις εδώ..; ένα λεπτό ακόμα..;
    Ξέρω ότι θέλεις να διασχίσεις το κατώφλι της πόρτας
    Αλλά όλα γίνονται τόσο γρήγορα..
    Ας το κάνουμε να διαρκέσει λίγο ακόμα, αυτό που
    εγώ σου έδειχνα στον ουρανό και τώρα θέλεις να πετάξεις.
    Είμαι η μεγαλύτερή σου θαυμάστρια
    Ελπίζω να το ξέρεις
    Όμως θα μπορούσες πιστεύεις κάπως να
    Περιμένεις;
    Αυτό είναι για εσένα
    Κάθε δόντι που βγήκε
    Κάθε ιστορία πριν τον ύπνο
    Αυτό είναι για τα αυτοκίνητα της μπάρμπι, τους πολέμους με τα φωτόσπαθα,
    τον ύπνο μέχρι λίγο πιο αργά τις Κυριακές.
    Έπρεπε να μπουσουλήσεις πριν περπατήσεις
    Πριν τρέξεις
    Πριν το καταλάβω
    Μου μάθαινες όσα μόνο η αγάπη μπορεί να σου μάθει
    Κρατώντας μου συνέχεια το χέρι
    Όταν φοβάσαι να ξέρεις ότι θα με έχεις δίπλα σου.
    Περίμενε
    Δεν θα μείνεις εδώ..; ένα λεπτό ακόμα..;
    Ξέρω ότι θέλεις να διασχίσεις το κατώφλι της πόρτας
    Αλλά όλα γίνονται τόσο γρήγορα..
    Ας το κάνουμε να διαρκέσει λίγο ακόμα, αυτό που
    Εγώ σου έδειχνα στον ουρανό και τώρα θέλεις να πετάξεις.
    Είμαι η μεγαλύτερή σου θαυμάστρια
    Ελπίζω να το ξέρεις
    Όμως θα μπορούσες πιστεύεις κάπως να
    Περιμένεις;
    Σε παρακαλώ, μη με κοιτάζεις ενοχλημένα
    Ξέρω ότι σε φέρνω σε δύσκολη θέση
    Όμως κάποια μέρα θα καταλάβεις
    Θα κρατάς ένα μικρό χεράκι
    Και θα το ρωτάς αν μπορεί.
    Γιατί όλα γίνονται τόσο γρήγορα…
    Είμαι η μεγαλύτερή σου θαυμάστρια
    Ελπίζω να το ξέρεις
    Όμως θα μπορούσες πιστεύεις κάπως να
    Περιμένεις..;;
