Much Too Soon

She was there just sitting at the table

Thinking now that things won't be the same

And wouldn't you like to go with me?

And she answered "No" to me but

I guess I learned my lesson much to soon



I never thought she'd leave me here forever

But who knows just what the future brings

And wouldn't you like to go with me?

And she answered "No" to me but

I guess I learned my lesson much too soon



Take away this never ending sorrow

Take this lonely feeling from my soul

If only I knew what things bring tomorrow

She'd be sitting here beside me

And my heart would then be whole



I hope to make a change now for the better

Never letting fate control my soul

And I'm hoping that my prayers will see

Day that you'll come back to me

But I guess I learned my lesson much too soon

Oh, oh

Yes, I guess I learned my lesson much too soon
