Neal Morse Album: It's Not Too Late Track: All The Young Girls Cry
All The Young Girls Cry Lyrics
She was seventeen years, three months and seven days when she met THE ONE The novel that was her life had just begun But after six weeks it was already A. D. meanin' after death And chapter two was all just remorse and regrets
Chorus: Now it's so much for believing So much for the lie But that's alright - all the young girls cry Kiss him for the last time Kiss your heart goodbye But that's alright - all the young girls cry
She always thought if she could color her world she'd color it in blue She always felt she felt too much - that much is true But inside she was clean and pure; insecure as the driven snow But that's before he made his tracks and let her go
And she won't be the same At least not for the rest of today......
CHORUS (to end)
Notes: I had been toying around with this tune for awhile....then I finally wrote the lyric on a Ferry boat between Helsenki and Stockholm on the Dream Theater /Spock's Beard tour. I was sitting up in the kareoki bar working on it while hundreds of Finns were doing country line dancing. Bizarre? Slightly. My friend George came around and we had a laugh and I played him this song and he had tears well up in his eyes. George was a very sweet, emotional guy. I still don't know why he reacted that way but that's what this song always reminds me of.
