Hey there now
Where'd you go
You left me here so unexpected
You changed my life
I hope you know
Cause now I'm lost
So unprotected

In a blink of an eye
I never got to say goodbye

Like a shooting star
Flyin' across the room
So fast so far
You were gone too soon
You're part of me
And I'll never be
The same here without you
You were gone too soon

You were always there
And like shining light
On my darkest days
You were there to guide me

Oh I miss you now
I wish you could see
Just how much your memory
Will always mean to me

In a blink of an eye
I never got to say goodbye

Like a shooting star
Flyin' across the room
So fast so far
You were gone too soon
You're part of me
And I'll never be
The same here without you
You were gone too soon

Shine on! shine on!
To a better place
Shine on! shine on!
Will never be the same

Like a shooting star
Flyin' across the room
So fast so far
You were gone too soon
You're part of me
And I'll never be
The same here without you
You were gone too soon

Shine on! shine on!
You were gone too soon
Shine on! shine on!
You were gone too soon
Shine on! shine on!
You were gone too soon

    My brother committed suicide when i was younger. It was the anniversary yesterday, and i've been listing to it on repeat crying. It just brings that all back. It remind me of him, so, so much and just how much i miss him.

    I lost 2 important people in my life within months of each. I knew both since childhood. This song reminds me of both & reminds me god has a reason for taking them both from me at 15/16 years old.

    Okay, 1st of all i wanna say great song simple plan. The song sounds like it's about someone, a cancer sufferer maybe, who was very dear to you and passed away in the middle of the night and you never got to say goodbye. They were still young and were "gone to soon" as simple plan put it.
