"One Sweet Day" as written by Mariah Carey, Walter N. Afanasieff, Michael S. Mccary, Nathan B. Morris, Wanya Jermaine Morris and Shawn Patrick Stockman....
Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say
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

Darling I never showed you
Assumed you'd always be there
I, 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

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

Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say

    General Commentoh I so agree with nenerz. I miss the friends I lost so much, and I wish I could have told them everything I wanted to before it was too late... but the song is so beautiful.

    General CommentI agree with others; this song is about regret. However, it is also about hope in that the persona(s) will be reunited with that person(s) that they took for granted.

    Tell people what you feel about them now!
