Michael Jackson – Gone Too Soon lyrics

Like A Comet
Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon

Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon

Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon

Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon

Gone Too Soon

    Michael Jackson wrote this song for Ryan White who died from aids at the age of 19. Nobody would have ever guessed, least of all Michael, this song would one day tell the story of his own life. I love this song because it compares your loved one to all the beautiful things in life, and how they never seem to last long enough.
    "Born to amuse, to inspire to delight. Here one day, gone one night..." That line sums up Michael Jackson's life. He amused us with his beautifully unusuality. He inspired us with his music and his life. He delighted us with his prescence. He was here one day, and gone one night. Much, much too soon. Rip Michael! I haven't forgot you yet, I never will.

    I really do believe that when micheal wrote this song he wrote entirly for himself. I remeber where I was when he died and then I watched his funeral on tv and I cryed. I always thought of micheal as freak but then I realized all the things that he did for all those kids adn how he tried to make the world a bette place. And he really is gone too soon. He will always be remebered as the king of pop.
