"So Soon" as written by and Steven Thomas Moakler....
I used to roam these streets with a bicycle and my bare feet
Til streetlights cast their shine or my dad would say it's time to eat
There were rocks that I turned over, some I just left in the dirt
I'd fall and skin my knees; that was all I knew of her.
I was just learning how to dot my Is and cross my Ts
Couldn't wait to turn the tide, so never thought it'd be

So soon, so soon
I started chasing happy ever after
So soon, so soon
Every step that I got closer, the clocks kept moving faster, faster

Next thing that I knew, there were angels and they caught my eyes
And I'd drive to their houses, bring them flowers, red and white
But hearts are misunderstood
People told me love would hurt me, never thought it would

So soon, so soon
I started chasing happy ever after
So soon, so soon
I learned a lesson and the clocks keep moving faster, faster

It went up so fast, my youth, it blames my hourglass
Empty on its side
It left before I said goodbye, goodbye

My mother called today, she asked me if my bills were paid
Tears ran down her face to hear a man in her boy's place
Boy, would you look at you now?
People told me this would happen, but never told me how

So soon, so soon
You'd find your way and I couldn't run after
So soon, so soon
Every inch that you've grown taller, the clocks keep moving faster, faster
