Too Soon

from Neon and Gold by Dan Jacob Wallace

lyrics

heaven is a place on earth
give it to the dirty people
count their blessings as a curse
i’ve been counting mine
since my first rebirth

someone’s got to give it a name
so we can call it out when we’re in the dark

everything’s got something to tell
have to learn to read the language
every word i ever said
has fifty meanings i can choose from later

someone’s got to give it a name
so we can call it out when we’re in the dark

there’s a face, there is a photograph
dig it up, go deep into the past
when you find there is an alibi
we will be in touch…don’t mourn too soon

it’s surprising what is there
it’s surprising what is not there
everything i ever had
evolved from some sort of illicit bargain

someone’s got to give it a name
so we can call it out when we’re in the dark

there’s a face, there is a photograph
dig it up, go deep into the past
when you find there is an alibi
with a little luck, we will be in touch…
don’t mourn too soon
