about

"Don't Rush Me" was a song written in a single sitting after an unsuccessful attempt to play an open mic night. We had tried to sign up, but the roster had filled up too soon, so we decided not to waste the night. We brainstormed a bit, hummed a couple melodies, and the song was born. Then we returned to the open mic night the following week and played the brand new song.

lyrics

I'm not sure yet
Don't know when I'll be
Could you wait for me
or would you clip my wings?
I can't be sure yet
Because I'm not ready
So please don't rush me

I want what's best for you and me
Don't try to control what's happening
I want what's best, not what is easy
It's not easy rushing things
So don't rush me

Why won't you give it up?
Because I'm not happy
Why can't you see
that you're hurting me?
I want to be myself
apart from you and me
I'm just trying to breathe

I want what's best for you and me
Don't try to control what's happening
I want what's best, not what is easy
It's not easy rushing things
So don't rush me

Because I'm easily wrong
Easily hurt, easily pushed down in the dirt
I'm easily torn about what to decide
So please just stay by my side tonight
(I want what's best why can't you see?
I need some time, let me be free)

I want what's best for you and me
Don't try to control what's happening
I want what's best, not what is easy
It's not easy rushing things
So don't rush me

Both Drew and Megan had been writing music separately and had been affiliated with various groups before deciding to come together and try their hand at writing together. The result was immediately recognized as being awesome, and they haven't looked back since. ... more
