Selena Gomez Lyrics

Slow Down Lyrics
Jump to:
Now that I have captured your attention
I want to steal you for a rhythm intervention
Mr. TSA I'm ready for inspection
Sh-sh-show me how you make a first impression

Oh, oh
Can we take it nice and slow, slow
Break it down and drop it low, low
Cause I just wanna party all night in the neon lights 'til you can let me go

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long
Baby, slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end hit rewind
All night long
Baby, slow down the song

Oh oh oh oh
Yeah, baby, slow down the song
Oh oh oh oh
Yeah, baby, slow down the song

If you want me I'm accepting applications
So long as we k-keep this record on rotation
You know I'm good with mouth to mouth resuscitation
Breathe me in, breathe me out
So amazing

Oh, oh
Can we take it nice and slow, slow
Break it down and drop it low, low
Cause I just wanna party all night in the neon lights 'til you can let me go

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long
Baby, slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end hit rewind
All night long
Baby, slow down the song

Oh oh oh oh
Yeah, baby, slow down the song
Oh oh oh oh
Yeah, baby, slow down the song

Breathe me in, breathe me out
The music's got me going
Breathe me in, breathe me out
No stop until the morning
Breathe me in, breathe me out
You know I'm ready for it
For it, for it
Yeah
Breathe me in, breathe me out
The music's got me going
Breathe me in, breathe me out
No stop until the morning
Breathe me in, breathe me out
You know I'm ready for it
For it, for it!
Yeah!

(I-It's the cataracts)

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long
Baby, slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end hit rewind
All night long
Baby, slow down the song

Oh oh oh oh
Yeah, baby, slow down the song
Oh oh oh oh
Yeah, baby, slow down the song

How do I do it?
I-I-It's the cataracts

Ha ha ha ha

Slow Down Info:

Slow Down is a song taken from Selena Gomez' debut studio album, Stars Dance (2013). It was released on June 3, 2013, when it was made available for instant digital download along with the pre-order of the album. Hollywood Records later sent the song to mainstream radio as the second single from the album on August 13. The dance-pop song was produced by The Cataracs and David Kuncio, and infuses EDM elements in its instrumentation.

Selena recorded this Dubstep-influenced track to remind herself how important it is to live in the moment. "It's basically just about having this moment and not having to rush it, because I don't know how many times I've been like, 'I just want to be married and over this,' but this is what we're supposed to be enjoying," she revealed to MTV News.

Selena was inspired by EDM artist Skrillex to record "baby dubstep" for her Stars Dance album. She told MTV News: "I love to dance and I love to make people dance. It's the best feeling."

The accompanying music video for "Slow Down" was directed by Philip Andelman, and filmed in Paris, France. Selena told MTV News: "Well I wanted it to be different than 'Come and Get It' in the slightest way. I think 'Come & Get It' was more of that sensual vibe and is very beautiful and 'Slow Down's a little bit harder, so we kind of went for more darker themes. And it was fun. The dancing was great and we got to shoot it in Paris, so that was amazing and unbelievable, It was a good experience."
