Settle for a Slowdown
by Dierks Bentley



i must look just like a fool here
in the middle of the road
standing in your review
and getting soaked to the bone
this lands as flat as it is mean
a man can see for a hundred miles
so im still praying that i might see
the glow of the break lights.

but your wheels just turn
down the road ahead
if it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
im just looking for
the slightest sign
that you might miss
what you left behind
i know theres nothing stopping you now
but i'd settle for a slow down.

i held on longer than i should
leaving you might change your mind
the bright lights of hollywood
would fade in time.

but your wheels just turn
down the road ahead
if it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
im just looking for
the slightest sign
that you might miss
what you left behind
i know theres nothing stopping you know
but i'd settle for a slow down.

[insturmental break]

but your wheels just trun
down the road ahead
if it hurts at all
you aint showed it yet
your just a tiny dot on that horizon line
c'mon tap those breaks
baby just one time
oh i know theres nothing stopping you know
im not asking you to turn back around
but i'd settle for a slow down

i'd settle for a slow down
come on just slow down
i'd settle for a slow down
