​Slow Down

This song is by Chris LeDoux and appears on the album Haywire (1994).

Well, I used to laugh with an old friend
Till the busy world pulled him away
And every now and then I see him again
But he's not the same man I knew yesterday

His smile just grows smaller and smaller
And the worry lines fill up his face
But lately I'm thinking the next time I see him
Just what I'm gonna say

Slow down, man in the mirror, slow down
You're running too fast to see what life's all about
This world ain't a fire for you to put out
The best times are here and now, slow down

Some days I look back on the hard times
And they really don't seem all that bad
Well, I've got to admit I like what I've got
But God I sure love what I had

But it's only on top of the mountain
After burning your life at both ends
You look back to see where you want to be
Is exactly where you've always been

Slow down, man in the mirror, slow down
You're running too fast to see what life's all about
This world ain't a fire for you to put out
The best times are here and now, slow down
Slow down

Better slow down, man
