lyrics

1. Slow Me Down (Nigel Kerr/Rachael Brady)

The world is getting louder so I threw the TV out - I said goodbye to all those plastic girls with tans the whole year round. I want a real life. So I’m growing basil on my window sill; the leaves are turning red outside and I’m bracing for the chill because life here is slowing down. Slow me down. Watch the circle come around. I was made in the 70s so at heart I’m just a peacenik poet – a child of the dream. I’ve got crystals in my pocket and I wanna know your sign; I believe in things that I can’t see but they’re bigger and slower and they move in me. Slow me down – watch the circle come around. I’m tired of the traffic in my head and on the street. I’m tired of reality TV shows that don’t mean a thing and I’m tired of ‘the scene’ – give me trees… Give me Echo Point and Govett’s Leap or the view from Mt. York Obelisk into the Hartley Valley – give me real beauty. Y’see all I want is a life that’s real – made up of small details we live too fast to feel like these seeds sprouting from the ground. I long to live in time with the planet but we’re moving too fast for it. Slow me down. Watch the fruit fall to the ground when the leaves are turning brown watch the circle come around.

about

Rachael Brady Katoomba, Australia

From the heart of the rugged Blue Mountains (Australia) comes the moon-dance tree-dreaming voice of Rachael Brady... country- soul-bluesy with a whole lot of heart. Inspiring, inspired, loving, nourishing, she'll take you by the hand and show you who she is...sometimes funny, sometimes strange, a little bit kooky, always oddly beautiful. ... more
