"Leaving So Soon?" is a song performed and composed by English piano rock and alternative rock band Keane, featured on their second studio album, Under the Iron Sea. "Leaving So Soon?" was the last song composed for the album, circa 2005.

The song is considered a fan favourite, and was believed by some to be a potential single for the album. It remains the Keane song with the highest tempo released (144). Written by pianist Tim Rice-Oxley. It was confirmed by Tim Rice-Oxley in 2005 that he was writing a song Leaving So Soon for drummer Richard Hughes who at that time was going through a break up with his long term partner. Tim had said he seemed "distant", his mind being elsewhere. This song was dedicated to him.
