"No Time Soon" as written by and Thomas Decarlo/burton Callaway....
This could be one of those days
That we must go our separate ways.
Scared for you to be out of my sight,
Because you never know, you might.

And I carry this
It's heavy.
And I miss you
Already

You were perfect babe.

My time will come
Yours too.
I'll gladly go before you.

I hope you live forever,
Or maybe we can go together.

It would be perfect baby.

And I carry this,
It's heavy.
And I miss you
Already

    General CommentTo me this song seems to be about the death of a loved one. Also I believe the second verse is:
    "My time will come, yours too.
    I'd gladly go before you.
    I hope you live forever.
    Or maybe we can go together."

    With this in mind I definitely think it's about a death, and how he finds it hard to come to terms with and wishes the person would outlive him, such is his love for them.

    The first verse sort of makes me think it's about suicide ("Scared to let you out of my sight, 'cuz you never know... you might") A person who is insecure and whom he suspects is considering suicide?

    Also, the synth solo that comes in at 1:40 gives me a real vivid image of someone floating towards Heaven. Although maybe that's just me, but this song means a lot to me so just throwin' that out there.

    General CommentI think the song is about his mother. Cee-lo lost both of his parent, his father at a young age and his mother i think when he was 18. She had cancer. So I think the song is about the time when a person is dying and they are not the same person you knew them to be. "I miss you already". The song after tihs one "She knows" is also about his mother. I read that in a article somewhere. So the two tie in together.

    General CommentThis quote pretty much sums this song up for me

    Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

    General CommentI can confirm that this song is about Commander Shepard reflecting upon the meeting on Horizon.
