"Too Much Too Fast" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum Doug Martinez....
Rifling through the pictures of you
I can finally tell
They develop well
The tale I see
It tells my favorite story
Of friction and glory

Breaking the cast
Repeating the past
It's not written
That's all just fiction
No, who says it's written in stone?

It's been a long time
Oh, such a long time
Finding my way all back out, whoa
Somehow you stood by
Beyond when you should die
I'm amazed at how things have turned out

What is revealed?
What is concealed?
It makes all the difference
Say what you will
We unreeled that human web
Just to see how it feels

[Chorus:]
Too much too fast
For the moment to last
I tumbled to you
While stumbling through
How do I get my head off of the tracks
Listening for a train, ah
Cause that's just no way to live
I got so much love to give
Much too fast, oh

Out of the blue
It all comes in view
You never win
If you don't go all in
The perfect hand
Can go just as you planned
I don't understand

Began right on track
Slipped through the cracks
We were two of a kind
Who seemed destined to find
We unreeled that human web
Just to see how it feels

[Chorus]
Too much too fast
For the moment to last
I tumbled to you
While stumbling through
How do I get my head off of the tracks
Listening for a train, ah
Cause that's just no way to live
I got so much love to give
Much too fast, oh

So much love to give, too much too fast [Repeat: x1]
Got so much love to give
Too much too fast
So much love to give
Too much too fast

    General CommentThis song is about how going too fast in a relationship can doom it. You may have so much love to give, but don't let too much of it come out too fast.
