She goes down fast and comes up slow,
She gets in high and goes out low;
Turns up late or doesn't show,
She spends all her cash on letting go.
(She spends all her cash on letting go.)

I'm never early, I'm never late,
I'm in at five and I'm out at eight;
Running just to keep the pace,
When I'm tired I put on my bravest face.

The sign said Go Slow,
And Lord knows how I tried to follow;
Such a hard case with a soft face,
Gave me one taste,
Now look at the shape I'm in.

I love her but I like you too,
My worst nightmare just came true;
We might be done but we're not through,
So wear me out just like you used to do.

The sign said Go Slow,
And Lord knows how I tried to follow;
Such a hard case with a soft face,
Gave me one taste,
Now look at the shape I'm in.

With the morning comes the sun,
The light of day just had to come;
Now I know I'm not the one,
I should feel bad, but baby we had fun.

The sign said Go Slow,
And Lord knows how I tried to follow;
Such a hard case with a soft face,
Gave me one taste,
Now look at the shape I'm in.

Hold me down under the sea,
Drag me back to where we used to be.

The sign said Go Slow,
And Lord knows how I tried to follow;
Such a hard case with a soft face,
Gave me one taste,
And now you're hard to swallow.

The sign said
Go Slow,
And Lord knows how I tried to follow;
Such a hard case with a soft face,
Gave me one taste,
Now look at the shape I'm in.

Liner Notes: Initially written with Kalem Mahoney, it took Jeen O'Brien less than five minutes to create the killer chorus. It's about knowing something is really bad for you and then doing it anyway, like smoking cigarettes...

The video above features a live performance by Great Big Sea at the Molson Amphitheatre, Toronto, Ontario, July 12, 2008.
