Bb Dm Gm
Last night the constellations
Bb Dm Gm
Watched me walk at half past twelve
Bb D7 Gm
With some people you don抰 see the whole picture all at once
C7 F
Like you fill in the gaps in the stars all by yourself

And who has time in this world of worries,
Drives you crazy makes you mad,
When you make the mistake just a little too late,
You're missing something now that you never knew you had.

Gm D7 Gm C
So how do I answer these blues you say I've got
Bb Dm Gm Eb F Bb
Too soon gone, too soon gone
Gm D7 Gm C
Time makes me pay for these memories I've bought
Bb Dm Gm Eb F Bb
Too soon gone, too soon gone

Eb F# Bb
No one lives forever
Eb D Gm C
Who would want to
Bb Dm Gm Eb F Bb
But you're too soon gone, too soon gone
Bb Dm Gm Eb F Bb
Too soon gone, too soon gone

Pretty soon now all this ice will melt,
And buds will get ready to break.
But every leaf that grows,
In the language that it knows,
Says that winter will return now and these trees are gonna shake.

So how do I answer these blues you say I've got?
Too soon gone, too soon gone.

Time sweeps me forward, as memory is caught.
Too soon gone, too soon gone.
Too soon gone, too soon gone.
