"She Was So Young" as written by and David Ashworth Gates....
Off in the corner, the restaurant dim.
He looks at her and she smiling at him.
Wish you could hear what he's trying to say.
Slipped in between while the waiters away.

She is so young in the spring of her life.
He in his autumn, and I know his wife.
He took a chance when it came to can him, then.
Found is too late to start over again.

Life, can be, so hard, at times.
Man's only mortal and oftentimes frail.
Hard to succeed but so easy to fail.

Now he must tell her of all of his past.
She will be leaving, it's over at last.
Left without either to love or forget.
Hoping to undo what he's done, and yet.

She is so young and so hard to resist.
He always felt there was something he missed,
Here comes the waiter, the bill on his tray.
Only a part of the price he must pay.

Cause life, can be, so hard, at times.
Man's only mortal and so often frail.
Hard to succeed but so easy to fail.
