Last night, the constellations
Watched me walk at half past twelve
With some people you don't see
The whole picture all at once
Like you fill in the gaps
In the stars all by yourself

And who has time in this world of worries?
Drives you crazy, makes you mad
When you make the mistake
Just a little too late
You're missing something now
That you never knew you had

So, how do I answer
These blues you say I've got?
Too soon gone, too soon gone
Time makes me pay for
These memories I've bought
Too soon gone, too soon gone

No one lives forever
Who would want to?
But you're too soon gone, too soon gone
Too soon gone, too soon gone

Pretty soon, now all this ice will melt
And buds will get ready to break
But every leaf that grows
In the language that it knows
Says that winter will return now
And these trees are gonna shake

So how do I answer
These blues you say I've got?
Too soon gone, too soon gone
Time sweeps me forward
As memory is caught
Too soon gone, too soon gone
Too soon gone, too soon gone
