"Day Too Soon" as written by Sia Furler and Samuel Ronald Dixon....
Pick me up in your arms
Carry me away from harm
You're never gonna put me down
I know you're just one good man
You'll tire before we see land
You're never gonna put me down

Oh I've been running all my life
I ran away, I ran away from good
Yeah I've been waiting all my life
You're not a day you're not day too soon

Honey I will stitch you
Darling I will fit you in my heart
Honey I will meet you
Darling I will keep you in my heart

You'll risk all this for just a kiss
I promise I will not resist
Promise you wont hold me down
And when we reach a good place
Let's be sure to leave no trace
Promise they wont track us down

Now I've been running all my life
I ran away, I ran away from good
Yeah, I've been waiting all my life
You're not a day, you're not a day too soon

Honey I will stitch you
Darling i will fit you in my heart
Honey I will meet you
Darling I will keep you in my heart

I've been running all my life
I ran away, I ran away from good
Yeah I've been waiting all my life
You're not a day, you're not a day too soon

Oh honey I will stitch you
Darling I will fit you in my heart
Honey I will meet you
Darling I will keep you in my heart

    General CommentI think it's about finally finding your true love after years of waiting and making the wrong choices and taking the wrong path. Beautiful song.

    General CommentSia said that this song is about meeting that perfect match, even though I think she wrote this about another girl. I think its the perfect wedding song

    General CommentAmazing song, one of the best song in Some people have real Problems' album.

    I believe that this person is a bit jaded about love, but she has found this guy, I don't think its a old flame, I think its a new one, she "ran away from good" every time she found it since she was waiting for the one she wanted, and this guy came, "not a day too soon". She will be selfless and give everything to this guy cause she knows this is the one she was waiting for.

    I enjoy the way she goes up in volume, like a way of celebration. A song that you can sing your heart out while driving!

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who has realized what he or she has given up on... true love. "Oh I've been running all my life... I ran away from good." Finally, this person has this one chance to get this person back. He or she has really messed up and made some really bad decisions in the past with this person... and is ready to dedicate everything to mend all of the pain he or she has caused this person wholly. "Honey, I will stitch you."

    Just a really great song that says "I promise I won't hurt you ever again."

    General CommentI think it's about when two people meet who are meant for each other but both their hearts have been so damaged that fear tears them apart. Sia has recognized her fear and is ready to confront it but needs the other person to do the same. She's willing to stitch their heart up and not run away from them. "promise they won't track us down" has significant meaning for me. Ugh, I get tears in my eyes every time I hear this song.

    General CommentI guess I agree with those who say this is a love song, from the perspective of someone who's had a lot of trouble dealing with relationships. She's never been in a healthy relationship, and therefore she's always feared she'd never find the right person. Now she can't believe she's finally found someone who really loves her and is good for her. She'd do anything to cast aside her trust issues and inhibitions to be with him but can't help but still worry she'll be hurt again. Very emotional and beautiful song.
