Gone Too Soon Lyrics

today could've been the day
that you blow out your candles
make a wish as you close your eyes
today could've been the day
everybody was laughin'
instead i just sit here and cry
who would you be?
what would you look like
when you looked at...

    I lost my beautiful baby boy on 4.26.17 he was stillborn at 36 weeks. This song touches my heart in a way I wish it never would. But as in the song not a day goes by I don't think of you. He'll always be in my heart & this song is a great reminder of that.

    I am the father of four daughters. On November 23, 2015, my oldest daughter Sarah committed suicide at the age of 17. She and I both are big Daughtry fans and we both always liked and appreciated this song. The day I lost her, this song took on a whole new meaning. Every lyric applies to what could have been and should have been. It has nearly been a year and every time I hear this song I just go to pieces all over again. To me this song has no time or age constraints on it. My heart goes out to everyone who has posted their interpretations. Thank you Chris for this beautiful song. Darren Swain 10/25/16

    I came across this song today the day before what should have been my sons 7th birthday but sadly he was never here long enough to know what a birthday party was. He was just 6 days old when he died. This song pretty much sums up how my day has been thinking of the party I should have been organising....
