Too far, too fast

nights I lie awake,
your voice inside me.
strange how much it aches.
strange how long it takes.

we played a different game.
we were younger.
and something we could feel
was something that was real.

too far too fast,
and too good to last.
too good to last for long.

so take a day off
from your life
and spend it here with me.
drop your guard
just one more time,
and then I’ll set you free.
take a look inside yourself
and tell me what you see;
by now I thought you’d realized
I’m perfect company.

too far too fast
and too good to last,
too good to last for long.

like the days rush to greet you.
like the stars fall to meet you.
like the sunshine that heats you.
like the rain when it beats you
and cheats you,
again and again.

too far too fast,
and too good to last.
too good to last for long.

too high too soon
and too much to swallow.
too tough an act to follow.
