lyrics

GONE BEFORE YOUR TIME

Taken much too soon
You still had so much life to live
Sometimes it seems so cruel
Life should be better than it is

I stand here laying roses down
Tears falling onto broken ground

I'm gonna miss you
And I don't want to say good-bye
It's hard believing
You're really gone before your time

Mem'ries that I've saved
I close my eyes to see again
That was yesterday
Ashes, ashes in the wind

I stand here laying roses down
Tears falling onto broken ground

I'm gonna miss you
And I don't want to say good-bye
It's hard believing
You're really gone before your time

I'm gonna miss you
And I don't want to say good-bye
It's hard believing
You're really gone before your time

Oh . . . my son . . . find peace, my son
Oh . . . my son . . .

Ooooooo ooooooo oooohhhh ooh
Ooooooo ooooooo oooohhhh ooh

It isn't fair, it isn't right . . .
And all I can do is cry . . .
