Song Description

This tune could be sung by a guy or a gal. It's a snapshot of someone thinking about a love gone wrong. No real bitterness, more confusion. The last lines sort of sum up the denseness of the person thinking. Duh!

Story Behind the Song

We've all been there. How could I have made this work? The answer would usually hit you in the head if it had a hammer, it is so obvious to everyone but you.

Lyrics

Loved You Too Soon
©J. D. Carroll/Creative Ventures Music/ASCAP

It was a cloudy day
and the reason that you gave for leaving was lost among the times
of this season

And I had been meaning
to ask you to stay.

You came around
at the time I was just receiving
my degree for deceiving
And as I was leaving
you turned my head around.

Daffodils and daisies you were my lady
we were half crazy in the late afternoon.
But now you're going away
and I don't know what to say
I suppose I just loved you too soon.
I suppose I just loved you too soon.

There was a time when life was just a matter of dreaming
of sharing smiles and scheming
And never thinking of tomorrow
as today.

But those times have changed
and the plaster smiles have all been broken.
The bad rhymes have all been spoken.
And I've lost respect for the token love affair
I tried to arrange.
Daffodils and daisies you were my lady
we were half crazy in the late afternoon.
But now you're going away
and I don't know what to say
I suppose I just loved you too soon.
I suppose I just loved you too soon.

I could beg you to stay and make believe this dying dream is working,
pretend that all the laughter and the joking
was just as real as it was
when we first began.
I don't know why I should even try to salvage any dignity.
because I don't know what I would have done any differently.
Except perhaps to show you
that I cared.

Daffodils and daisies you were my lady
we were half crazy in the late afternoon.
But now you're going away
and I don't know what to say
I suppose I just loved you too soon.
I suppose I just loved you too soon.
