Too Soon

On these long and steady roads

Torn apart when stone erodes

There lies a heart, knows nothing best

With wandering eyes, kept to singing.

 

A dotted path with sunshine leaves

Walks a girl with real big dreams

But if she should die before she wakes

She should keep to singing.

 

Moon is out, music fades

She’s far from home, past the glades

Out on her own to make something real

But they keep her from singing

 

Saying

 

You’re just a girl, don’t run away

You may feel ready but today’s not the day

Not tomorrow nor yesterday

So come back home

 

And give it a break.
