Video & Lyrics: Slow Down – Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey performs his song Slow DownWe love these videos of Danny Gokey performing the songs off his album, RISE.  This video is “Slow down”.  It was written by Danny Gokey, Bernie Herms and Emily  Weisband.  Quite a team! They also wrote “Chasing” and “Stronger Than We Think”.

“Slow Down”

Oh it’s been a while since I felt I could breathe
I’m not running my life
No it’s running me
Mind’s going a million miles an hour can’t sleep
Be still and know yeah it’s so hard to do
When the world’s telling me I’ve got something to prove
All eyes are on me
Got everything to loseMore hustle go harder yeah get it done
Tired of trying to keep up
So I’ve gotta slow down
Cause I’m about to break down
Under all the pressure that’s pulling me
Voices saying don’t you stop keep moving around
I know I’ve got your love
So I’m already enough
There’s nothing more gotta stay gotta do
Than let you pull me close and just be with you now
So I can finally slowed downSitting here with you is a beautiful thing
You have opened my eyes to see all that I need
Is right here in your arms so deep in your heartMore hustle go harder yeah get it done
I’m tired of trying to keep up
So I’ve got to slow down
Cause I’m about to break down
Under all the pressure that’s pulling me
Voices saying don’t you stop keep moving around
I know I’ve got your love
So I’m already enough
There’s nothing more I gotta say gotta do
Than let you pull me close and just be with you now
So I can finally slow down

  2. Hey Angel, aren’t these the BEST?!?

    But I keep wondering if Danny has an official video for The Comeback? I’d take his performance at the K-LOVE awards…… 🙂

  3. Love everything you do. Saw you at Celebrate Freedom in Texas, that’s when I knew you are simply the best. I would like to see you do some non-christin music, don’t get me wrong I love my Rise CD listen to it going to work and coming home.
    Thanks for the sound you produce with your wonderful voice.

  4. Ah! My favorite song from the “Rise” album! (I never seem to like the songs that others do.) I love this song because it plays to the parts of Danny’s voice that get under my skin (in a good way). I’ll admit this is one of the few times when I prefer the recorded version of Danny’s song. To me, Danny’s singing sounds more urgent on the album version of “Slow Down” than on this video. Still, I don’t expect to hear “Slow Down” very often, so I’ll take what I can get.

  5. Hi Rosemary. I love Danny’s CD, too. I hope he continues to take a broad view to his music and that he gets opportunities beyond CCM. THanks for your comment.
