Standing in the middle of a sea of people, I closed my eyes and tried to make everything stand still around me. Large crowds and too much noise overwhelm my senses. However, when the Lumineers took the stage, I was able to shut off everything else and just absorb the music.
This song was one that followed me home, the words etched into my brain. A perfect Sunday song, with a message I really need. Slow it Down. My goal every Sunday. Should be my goal other days as well, but Sundays are a good place to start.
Hope you find a way to slow it down today as well.
Absolutely love the sound of the song. Still trying to figure the lyrics out. I’m thinking this is one of those groups that would be incredible to see live.
Yes, I have a feeling it means something different than I want it to– my guess is that he’s talking to a woman seeking too much attention from men. But, for me, it’s just the sound and idea of slowing it down. They are amazing live, one of those bands that sounds as good in person as they do recorded. Playing at Harlow’s Wednesday, although I think it’s sold out.
Wednesday is yoga night. 🙂
Probably a healthier choice for a Wednesday!
Just had a thought as I typed Lumineers into Spotify and started with Slow It Down … sometimes the title and the feel of the song are more important than the actual lyrics. This may just be one of those songs.
Perhaps! It’s always nice when the lyrics match the feel though 🙂 Am now very curious what the actual meaning is…
There are songs like that sometimes … I read the lyrics, I scratch my head, “huh?” I think, “I can’t possibly be this dense.” A Little Bit of Everything by Dawes — one of my new, all time favorites and I’ll never figure out what it is about.
Maybe it’s part of the appeal 🙂
