Gone Too Soon Lyrics

Play "Gone Too Soon"
on Amazon Music

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...

    A truly beautiful song:) Michael sings with the sweetness of an angel. The way he captures the essence of their friendship with words shows the amazing talent he possessed and the blessing of God upon his life. You don't just learn to sing like this...it comes from your soul...God-given. There is no other word for that kind of love... but amazing.

    I like the song Gone Too Soon. It was written after Michael's friend Ryan White died of AIDS in 1990 at the age of 18. Michael felt devastated, but realized that Ryan was a good friend to him. So, remembering the good times he had shared with Ryan, Michael then wrote the song Gone Too Soon in memory of his friend.

    "Ryan is gone, and just like anyone who's lost a loved one to AIDS, I miss him deeply and constantly. He is gone, but I want his life to have meaning beyond his passing."

    Kudos to Michael for writing such a bittersweet and yet beautiful song, and in loving memory of a friend he knew very well in life, too. :)
