I can't believe
That you're gone and we're alone
I can't believe
That we'll never see your face
I can't believe
That you're at the gates of Heaven
I can't believe
That we'll never know you
If only, if only
Miracles happened every day
If only, if only
I could believe in something
Helpless we cried over you
Empty and lost over you
How in the world
Can they say that you're at peace?
How in the world
Can they say that time will heal us?
How in the world
Can we hope to be forgiven?
How in the world
Can we know how we feel?
If only, if only
We could all live forever
If only, if only
No memories to remember
Words were not spoken for you
No grave marks our love for you
Broken our hearts call for you
No-one can blame us but you
How in the world can we ever smile again
How in the worldcan we live without you

    My friends know gary and his wife well and informed me that this was written when garys wife miscarried a child they so desperately tried for through IVF for years. When you listen to the lyrics, you really can hear the pain they must be feeling. I can't image that sorrow. God bless them they now have 3 beautiful children. Life is precious. Never forget that.
