[Verse 1]
G G
I hear you're leaving town
D D
'Cause you're tired of hanging around
C C C/G C/G
The same city limit signs
G G C C
You've been waiting around your whole life
G G
Just like a baby bird
D D
Nervous when it first learned
C C
To spread its wings
C/G C/G G G
And fly into the air


[Pre-Chorus]
D D
Now I've got to tell you something

These words might hurt

But please hold them long enough
G G D D C C
To feel their weight as they plead


[Chorus]
G G D D
Slow down, slow down
C C
Grab a coffee here with me
G G D D
And take a second to breathe
G G D D
Slow down, slow down
C C
Let's be quiet for a while
G G D D
And I will try to make you smile
G G
Slow down


[Verse 2]
G G
You love it when it rains
D D
'Cause it always washes away
C C C/G C/G
The dirt between the cracks
G G D D
Of everything that we think we see
G G
Now all your bags are packed
D D
Your father's head tips back
C C C/G C/G
Into the chair that he sits
G G D D
While he watches you slip away


[Pre-Chorus]
D D
He cries, "Will you please forgive me, darling

I can't keep living brokenhearted

First it was your mother
G G D D C C
Now it's bound to be you"


[Chorus]
G G D D
Slow down, slow down
C C
What about all our memories
G G D D
When you would dance and sing for me
G G D D
Slow down, slow down
C C
What happened to my baby girl
G G D D
Who used to sit on top the world
G G
Slow down


[Verse 3]
Em Em
You can travel the world
C C G G
Just as fast as your feet'll go
Em Em
Graze the Atlantic shorelines
C C G G
Sleep in hotels of Tokyo
Em Em
Lose everything in Vegas
C C G G
Then go falling in love in Spain
Em Em
But like Arizona's canyons
C C G G
A A hole in you remains


[Pre-Chorus]
D D
I just want you to believe

That the invisible frame's what we see

And it's as beautiful as a baby's eyes
G G D D C C
And as incredible as the first time they breathe


[Chorus]
G G D D
Slow down, slow down
C C
Grab a coffee here with me
G G D D
And take a second to breathe
G G D D
Slow down, slow down
C C
Let's be quiet for a while
G G D D
And I will try to make you smile
G G
Slow down
