"You're Always Going Too Soon" as written by and Matthew Jay....
It's been a long time since we hung around together in the street
And I miss those days, when the world would wait for us
With our crowd of friends we'd sit along the pavement near your house
'Till the sun came down and we brought the stars out

When I heard it for the first time I could only stand and cry
You were just a boy, we were all so innocent
Oh we never thought this kind of thing would happen in our lives
But it broke our hearts and we won't forget no

All this time has fallen through me since you've been gone
And I wonder where you are
'Cos you've never let me know
Oh no no…

You're always going too soon
I'm always left on my own

It's OK I understand, sometimes life can hold you down

I can see your face as clearly now, today, as I could then
And it doesn't fade, but the times have changed so much
I would like to tell you all about the things that we have done
And we're doing fine, but I think you know that

    General Commentthis song is about someone who Matthew knows who dies..which is kinda obvious when you read it properly. What a lovely sentiment.

    General Commenti agree, it's about his friend who died. my best friend died last year in a car crash.. and this song didn't really stick-out in my playlist until then.. it's a beautiful song: makes me feel happy and sad at the same time..
