Gone Too Soon

Recommended Posts

The other day I came across a song by an American band called Daughtry - if any of you are familiar with them.

I came across their new album, and found a song on there called Gone Too Soon, and so I listened at I found the lyrics to be quite moving, and they may be with you all who read this. So below are the lyrics and there is a link to the song if you want to listen to it as well.

"Gone Too Soon"

Today could have been the day,

That you blow out your candles,

Make a wish as you close your eyes.

Today could have been the day,

Everybody was laughing,

Instead I just sit here and cry,

Who would you be?

What would you look like,

When you looked at me for the very first time?

Today could have been the next day of the rest of your life.

Not a day goes by,

That I don't think of you,

I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose,

Such a ray of light we never knew,

Gone too soon, yeah.

Would you have been president?

Or a painter, an author, or sing like your mother,

One thing is evident,

Would've given all I had,

Would've loved you like no other.

Who would you be?

What would you look like,

Would you have my smile and her eyes,

Today could have been the next day of the rest of your life.

Not a day goes by,

That I don't think of you,

I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose,

Such a ray of light we never knew,

Gone too soon, yeah.

Not a day goes by,

Oh

I'm always asking why.

Not a day goes by,

That I don't think of you,

I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose,

Such a beautiful light we never knew,

Gone too soon, yeah.

Not a day goes by,

That I don't think of you.

Beautiful, Amz. Thanks so much for sharing. I remember Chris Daughtry when he was a contestant on American Idol a few seasons ago. At the time, his brother was dying of a brain tumor. Every time he took the stage, he dedicated his music to his brother. I've no doubt that Chris wrote this song in honor of his brother. Just wonderful. (Would you care to add it to the list of songs on our Grief Songs page?)
