WORDS

ALL TOO SOON

Well I’m waiting here again for my life to begin.

Though I can’t buy or beg another breath.

And she can’t understand that holding fire in my hand 

comes as easily as life and death.

 

All too soon. It’s all too soon.

Can’t see tomorrow. Can’t change the moon.

All too soon. It’s all too soon.

Parting teardrops fall into the wound.

 

Well the world outside roared. It was man overboard.

I was saved before my feet got wet.

I was warmed by your heat, but beat a hasty retreat.

I don’t know why. It’s like I always forget.

 

All too soon. It’s all too soon.

Can’t see tomorrow. Can’t change the moon.

All too soon. It’s all too soon.

Parting teardrops fall into the wound.

 

What the soul holds dear is everything that I fear.

I can’t promise it to you just yet.

Would you settle for this? I know it’s only a kiss.

But it’s just as close as I can get.

 

All too soon. It’s all too soon.

Can’t see tomorrow, can’t change the moon.

All too soon. It’s all too soon.

Parting teardrops fall into the wound.
