Daughtry – Gone Too Soon lyrics

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

    We had a miscarraige last summer. But just a few months later found oursleves expecting again. But after nearly 5 months of pregnancy an ultrasound showed that his heart had stopped beating. All our joy and excitement was gone just like that. Not many people understand what its like. I came across this song at such a perfect time. It explains it perfectly. I love daughtry and thru this song have gained a great respect for them.

    From songfacts.com:

    This moving, grief-wracked ballad about a child never born was sparked by the birth of twins to Chris Daughtry. At one point during the writing session, the frontman had to walk out to collect himself. "The song is about realizing that today could have been the day that someone would be blowing out the candles," he said. "It just hit me pretty hard. I remember playing the demo for my brother and I turned around and he was bawling. I didn't realize that my brother's wife had suffered a miscarriage years before. It was a pretty emotional moment."

    After 4 years of trying to have a baby we got pregnant & out of no where I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks-it was so painful-something I never could imagine what it felt like & how hard it would be to go thru- one day we were seeing & hearing the heartbeat & one day it was just gone. I love this song -it is something so many of us feel & just don't ever get the chance to express-thank you for it-♥.

    I met my husband at age 19. We were in college and he was in the marines. We got married at age 20 and shortly after we had a daughter named christa. In 1996, at age 4 christa died from complications of leukemia. This year she would have been 20 and it kills the both of us. You can never forget and as parents we will always wonder what if? I love this song. It makes me smile and cry at the same time. My husband loves it as well.

    I wish no one would ever have to feel the meaning of this song. For all of our angels that we will see one day. Thank you this song will stay in my heart forever along with my son colt. No one could have written such a beautiful piece unless they have felt the loss, for that I am truly sorry for your loss. Please know that you have and will touch so many more. Amen!
