Not Too Soon
Throwing Muses Lyrics


She colorblind tired eyes
Her hallway aching
She'll never move him, likes it that way
He's just a walker and he'll never stop walking away
It's not too soon, he said, you know it's not too soon at all
And you might as well be dead, he said
If you're afraid to fall, I said, I know her

She said, oh, my, why do you stare so hard?
Wrapped up like a doll in bad dreams and broken arms
Make these old bones shiver
It's not too soon, he said, you know it's not too soon at all
And you might as well be dead, he said
If you're afraid to fall, I said, I know her

The last time I saw you, you were standing in the dark
And with a freezing face, I watched you fall apart

It's not too soon, he said, it's not too soon at all
And you might as well be dead, he said
If you're afraid to fall, I said
Done your time, been in your place
I couldn't look you in the face
and tell you that it turns me on
it makes my stomach turn
I know, I know her

Her hallway aching
She'll never move him, likes it that way
He's just a walker and he'll never stop walking away
It's not too soon, he said, you know it's not too soon at all
And you might as well be dead, he said
If you're afraid to fall, I said, I know her
She said, oh, my, why do you stare so hard?
Wrapped up like a doll in bad dreams and broken arms
Make these old bones shiver
It's not too soon, he said, you know it's not too soon at all
And you might as well be dead, he said
If you're afraid to fall, I said, I know her
The last time I saw you, you were standing in the dark
And with a freezing face, I watched you fall apart
It's not too soon, he said, it's not too soon at all
And you might as well be dead, he said
If you're afraid to fall, I said
Done your time, been in your place
I couldn't look you in the face
and tell you that it turns me on
it makes my stomach turn
I know, I know her

That is just one of the best damned pop songs of all time. Never gets old. Blows me away every time I hear it.

I love the drumming.

@Monica McMullin Uh huh. You're right. Upbeat and catchy doesn't equal "pop."

But "Not Too Soon" is nothing if not a pop song. The Beatles were a pop band. Phil Spector produced pop songs. Plenty of indie bands from the mid-80s through mid-90s were making pop songs. Hell, the Jesus and Mary Chain were making pop music -- drenched in distortion and feedback, sure, but they were pop songs nevertheless. And bands like Throwing Muses, Blake Babies, Velocity Girl, Lemonheads, etc., they all made pop songs too.

Just because a song is upbeat and catchy doesn't make it pop. This was before indie was a genre, when we used to flip through cds in the alternative section at the local record store for obsure bands from small, sometimes equally obscure [non-major/'independent'] record labels.

@Sapphy Megatron yeah , pretty sure pop is short for popular,and that song never was

I forgot about this song and just listened to it 10 times in a row! It’s crazy good! I was mostly listening to Ride and the Stone Roses when this one came out but ya.. this song does not age...
