Mariah Carey – One Sweet Day lyrics

I won't be afraid
I'll be alright if you help me
I know your looking down from heaven
And I won't let you down
I'll be everything you taught me
And all that I know is our way
Hate to see you whenever...

Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say
And now it's too late to hold you
'cause you've flown away
So far away

Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feeling and knowing you hear me
It keeps me alive
Alive...

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day
Eventually we'll sing in heaven

Darling I never showed you
Assumed you'd always be there
And I took your presence for granted
But I always cared
And I miss the love we shared

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day
Eventually we'll sing in heaven

Although the sun will never shine the same
I'll always look to a brighter day
Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day
And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day
Eventually we'll sing in heaven

Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say...

    On 06/14/1982, I met the love of my life, from that day basically, we were never apart for the next 10 yrs. We became a husband / wife trucking team and spent the next 8 years traveling the country and loving as hard and happily as anyone ever could. He passed away 03/18/1993 and 19 years later, I love him as strongly and deeply as ever and I can't wait until the day we can be together again. The 1st time that I heard it, I had to pull off the road I was crying so hard. It touched my soul as if it had been written for me.
