"Suddenly Is Sooner Than You Think" as written by and James Tamborello....
I carry it, your body
From the freeway
I cried as if my tears
Would bring you back to me
The sirens followed close behind
But they were too late
Deserved to drown
The last words
Then you whispered
Suddenly is soon, sooner than you think
Suddenly is soon, sooner than you think

Suddenly is soon

Sooner than you think.

Outside under a road
Backwards into the ground
Miss you
Down, down
Miss you
Down, down

Suddenly is soon, sooner than you think
Suddenly is soon, sooner than you think

    General CommentI think that first line is "I carried your body from the freeway". It's what she sings, and it also sticks with the past tense of the entire song.

    General CommentWell, this song is obviously about a car accident killing this girl's lover and instantly changing her life.

    The first verse is self-explanatory.

    As for the last part:

    "outside under a road
    backwards into the ground
    miss you
    down, down
    miss you
    down, down"

    She is using short fragments and words to create the feeling of tension and movement. The person (her boyfriend? girlfriend? we'll go with "he") is being thrown from his car into the ground and she loves him as he is falling. It would be like in a movie if we were to have a slow motion shot of him falling towards the ground and then a cut to her unaware, loving him, and then back to him falling, and then back to her. It's powerful imagery, to me.

    The lyrics are beautiful, the singing is perfect, and the song is amazing. Dntel translates emotion so well. He is my favorite. Love him.

    General CommentThe lyrics were "i miss you" not "i love you" so I messed up in that regard, but it's still the same.
