Julia Ryan – “Slow It Down”
“Love is what you need. You crave it so bad it takes over everything. You’re afraid of the pain. You so block it out to stay sane.” – lyrics
‘Slow It Down’ highlights the complexity of being in a committed relationship. The number one issue is people are unsure of what they really want. They desire the perks that come with being in love but don’t want to deal with the disadvantages that come along with it.
Therefore, Ryan suggests slowing things down. Otherwise, you might end up being lonely. Looking instead of finding what you really want.
‘Slow It Down’ contains a relatable storyline, soulful melodies, and a bass-driven instrumentation perfumed with a soft nostalgic scent.
“Love your body, love your mind, love your soul 🖤. Don’t let anyone tell you your worth based on how you look! You are so much more than that. So remember to tell yourself, “Every time your eyes glisten with the pictures in the magazine and shadows of what you should be, I’ll be here singing, slow it down…”. Because none of that really matters. Who we are NOW matters and what we can learn from the moment of today matters. That is what “Slow It Down” is all about! So take off all those layers, those filters, and blinds, and always remember to love your body, love your mind, and love your soul. Love is ALWAYS what you need.” – Julia Ryan ✌🏼
