After months of waiting finally The Netherlands released their song. Douwe Bob will represent The Netherlands at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, and be performing the song Slow Down on the stage!

 

┬áDouwe said about his entry: “We are all going way too fast. There is constant pressure to prove yourself.Slow Down is a protest song against myself, against the pace at which I live life in Amsterdam. When walking through the forests of Sweden, or riding a horse through the fields in Spain, a peace descends on you and you see everything in a better perspective. It is such a great feeling!”

 

 

 

IÔÇÖm going nowhere and IÔÇÖm going nowhere fast
I should find a place to go and rest
I should find a place to lay my head tonight

Every morning, thereÔÇÖs another a start
Every morning hits so hard
Guess IÔÇÖm running scared, guess IÔÇÖm running on empty

Mister, can you help me?
ÔÇśCause it seems IÔÇÖve been led astray
I keep searching for an answer
For a way

WonÔÇÖt you help me?

YouÔÇÖve gotta slow down brother,
Slow down brother, slow down if you canÔÇÖt go on
Slow down brother, slow down brother
Slow down if you canÔÇÖt go on

Do you think IÔÇÖll ever learn?
I used to be without concern
Now all I ever do donÔÇÖt seem to free me

Mister, can you help me?
ÔÇśCause it seems IÔÇÖve been led astray
I keep searching for an answer
Today

WonÔÇÖt you help me?

YouÔÇÖve gotta slow down brother,┬áslow down brother
Slow down if you canÔÇÖt go on
Slow down brother, slow down brother
Slow down if you canÔÇÖt go on
Slow down brother, slow down brother
Slow down if you canÔÇÖt go on
Slow down brother, slow down brother
Slow down if you canÔÇÖt go on
Slow down brother, slow down brother
Slow down if you canÔÇÖt go on
Slow down brother, slow down brother
Slow down if you canÔÇÖt go on
