All he could think about was I'm too young for this
Got my whole life ahead
Hell I'm just a kid myself
How'm I gonna raise one

All he could see was his dreams goin up in smoke
So much for ditchin this town and hangin out on the coast
Oh well
Those plans are long gone
And he said

There goes my life
There goes my future
My everything
Might as well kiss it all good-bye
There goes my life

Couple years of up all night and a few thousand diapers later
That mistake he thought he made covers up the refrigerator
Oh yeah
He loves that little girl

Mama's waitin to tuck her in as she fumbles up those stairs
She smiles back at him draggin that teddy bear sleep tight
Blue eyes and bouncing curls
And he smiles

There goes my life
There goes my future
My everything
I love you
Daddy good night
There goes my life

She had that Honda loaded down
With Ambercrombie clothes and 15 pairs of shoes and his American Express
He checked the oil, slammed the hood
Said your good to go
She hugged them both and headed off to the west coast
And he cried

There goes my life
There goes my future
My everything
I love you
Baby good-bye

There goes my life
There goes my life
Baby good-bye
Baby good-bye
There goes my life

    A high school football star finds his girlfriend pregnant, and panics about his life. He stays and watches his beloved daughter go up to bed, and he watches her move to the west coast. Good but depressing song. I like the tune.

    I was graduated not even 6 months from hs when i became the young mother. This entire song, to me,represents the feelings i felt for getting pregnant so young and then watching my daughter grow and me also realizing how "she is my life" and i couldnt have lived without her. She is my everything and i dread the day i have to let her go.
