Song Description

Reacting to the news of losing a friend; wondering if I could have done more.

Lyrics

Summertime in the city
School behind and the world ahead
You were young. You were pretty.
Baby blues and your lips so red.

Knew at once we would be good friends
Tied together like a binding knot
And though the years took us far apart
I never forgot

But Jen I didn't know your pain
The thunderous tears that fell like rain
And washed away your joy
So unexplained

'Cause Jen you never let it show
Hid your pain so far below
Your golden smile had everybody thrown

You know I would have been there when you
Felt alone
You know I would have been there
If I'd only known

Kept in touch on the big days
You were there on my wedding day
Always full of such high praise
You were sunny when the clouds were gray

Didn't know you were sinking down.
Deadly sorrow seeping all around
Chokin' you as you sat and cried
And made you stop the pain inside

No Jen I didn't know your pain
The thunderous tears that fell like rain
And washed away your joy
So unexplained

'Cause Jen you never let it show
Hid your pain so far below
Your golden smile had everybody thrown

You know I would have been there when you
Felt alone
You know I would have been there
If I'd only known

Now it's too late
Your time has come
It's too late
You're gone

I think of the things that I
Could have done
Would it have mattered
At all?
But it's too late
You're gone

I could not believe it
When I heard the news
Were you really gone?
No, it couldn't be true
Oh, how I wish that I'd known
What to do
To bring back your bright smile
And make your living days worthwhile

But it's too late
Your time has come
It's too late
You're gone

I think of the things that I
Could have done
Would it have mattered
At all?
But it's too late
You're gone

Too late
You're gone

Too late
You're gone
