So Soon

People they dream

Wake up and scream

Where have I been all these years

 

Rivers they flow

Ebb, then they flood

But they cannot carry our tears

 

It’s hard living here without you

I miss making breakfast for you

Why did you leave here so soon

 

Still in your room

Singing a tune 

Maybe you’ll come out for tea

 

We swam in the lake

Oh, the love that we made

While we gazed at the stars and the moon

 

It’s hard staying here without you

When all my thoughts are about you

Why did you leave here so soon

 

There is no end to love

I see all the signs

We’re never really done

I’ll see you on the other side

 

It’s hard being here without you

Still wanting to touch you

Why did you leave us so soon
