about

He has made a new young best friend who shares a heart similar to his. He sees her always diving headlong into future heartbreaks. He worries for her future emotional state. He starts to write her this song as a warning for taking better care of her heart but as he continues to write it out he realizes that this song is as much of a warning to him as to her. He shares her same heart. They are both passionate fools. They will feel pain no matter what, they don't really have a choice in the matter, and so he reminds her that she is beautiful and that she must laugh, and in doing so he also reminds himself that he is beautiful, and that he must hold on to laughter as well.

lyrics

Don’t fly towards the sun, you’ve been there before, and you’ll only burn

Slow down fast heart

High on wine flavored lips, your tangled desires get caught in the fire

Slow down fast heart

Slow down fast heart, hold back, love smart

Slow down fast heart, she’ll melt your wings apart

Fall, you’re falling straight down, your crown hits the ground, it bursts into sound

Slow down fast heart

Quick, gather up the shards, place them under guard, let nobody near

Slow down fast heart

Slow down fast heart, hold back, love smart

Slow down fast heart, she’ll melt your wings apart

There’s tears, there’s tears, they’re in your eyes

But I don’t like to see you cry

There’s laughter, smiles, down below

So let them out dear, let tears go

For you are much too filled with light

To waste your life with tears inside

There’s laughter, smiles, down below

So let them out dear, let fear go

Slow down fast heart, Slow down fast heart

about

David T8tz and His Lovely Friends Los Angeles, California

David T8tz has always used music as a way to cope with sadness. From his first heartbreak at 12 years old, he was writing and performing his own songs. He never thought this skill set learned at at such a young age would become so necessary for survival later in life.

(Previously David was the frontman for Winston and the Telescreen.)

Contributing musicians are listed in the track notes.
