How Did it Get So Late So Soon? by John Anderson Music published on 2013/05/14 08:24:58 +0000 The winds are strong and the waters cold I'm a sinking ship and you are my oars Just keep us afloat as long as you can Land's in sight but its too far to swim But how did it get so late so soon? We were once kids spinning gold from the golden loom. You've got my heart on a cutting block I never want to call and hear its much too late to talk Just pull yourself together boy A minute a mile Too short a Summer And the timeless denial Could this be real Far better than a dream Could you ever know what you mean to me? Could this be real Far better than a dream Will you ever know what you mean to me?
