Too Young To Go

'Too Young To Go' was originally composed for a family that lost their 17 year old son.

I want to share this song with all of the people affected by the school shootings in America.

I am offering this song as a free download for memorials and funeral services.

TOO YOUNG TO GO

Lyrics

Where did you go?
Where can you be?
It’s so unfair that you’ve been
Taken away from me
Left here to cry
Sad and alone
It seems so strange to know
You won’t be coming home
And I’d gladly give up all I own
For all those yesterdays
We used to share
Before you went away
And missing you is only part
Of why I feel this way…
Too young to know
And much too young to go…
(Too young to go...)

I had my hope
I kept my faith
I prayed to God that he would
Spare you from this fate
But that was then
And this is now
And now my only prayer
Is that somewhere, somehow
That you’re looking down on all of us
From heaven up above
And you can feel
The comfort of our love
And that all the hopes & dreams I thought
You’d someday grow to see
Are there for you
For all eternity

So for now, I’ll only say goodbye
As though you’re only sleeping
(Peaceful dreams)

And until the day we reunite
I’ll hold on tight
To your loving memory
I’ll see your smile
(In my memory…)

And look in your eyes
(Somewhere, someday…)

I’ll touch your hand
(Together again…)

You were much too young to go…
