Today could've been the day
That you blow out your candles
Make a wish as you close your eyes
Today could've been the day
Everybody was laughin'
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've 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, a author or sing like your mother
One thing is evident
Would've give 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've 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, oh

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 life we never knew
Gone too soon
You were gone too soon, yeah

And not a day goes by
That I don't think of you

    There’s no hiding room
    When every wound
    Brings the darkest place to light
    So why not assume
    That straight out of the womb
    I’ve been marked by a beast of some kind
    (Marked by a beast of some kind)
    And there are so many reasons why you’re not
    Crazy for leaving
    Just crazy for staying so long
    I’m amazed you’re still breathing
    Amazed you can feel at all
    For all the pain I caused
    I’m the one crazy after all
    The one crazy after all
    There’s no need for signs
    When your crying eyes said a million words tonight
    And I’d rather die than see you do time
    For the wrongs that you can’t make right
    You’re not crazy for leaving
    Just crazy for staying so long
    I’m amazed you’re still breathing
    Amazed you can feel at all
    For all the pain I caused
    I’m the one crazy after all

    I cant imagine what someone would go through, losing a child at any age.. I am so glad his twins are fine though. His bio indicates that his brothers wife had a misscarriage and chris had no idea before writing the song. Anyway, it made me cry and i have listened to the song a thousand times..

    Love this song... He captures all of the feelings and emotion as if he has lost a child of his own. It's been 10 years this month since my son was still born at 39 weeks, and just like the song says... Not a day goes by that i don't think of you!
