"Who You'd be Today" as written by William Luther and Aimee Mayo....
Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
I feel you everywhere I go
I see your smile, I see your face
I hear you laughing in the rain
I still can't believe you're gone

It ain't fair you died too young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder who you'd be today

Would you see the world, would you chase your dreams
Settle down with a family
I wonder what would you name your babies
Some days the sky's so blue
I feel like I can talk to you
I know it might sound crazy

It ain't fair you died too young
Like a story that had just begun
But death tore the pages all away
God knows how I miss you
All the hell that I've been through
Just knowing no one could take your place
Sometimes I wonder who you'd be today

Today, today, today
Today, today, today

Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know I'll see you again someday

Someday, someday

    General CommentVery, Very good.
    I guess this is for the friend he refers to in "I go Back".

    General CommentThis is one of Kenny's best songs by far. Well, best recent songs.

    It's pretty self-explanatory, someone he knew from his youngerdays died...and so on and so forth.

    Thewhitepele18 - that's a good idea.

    General CommentBack in october my brother and his friend got into a really bad car accident and his friend died. his friend was like my big bro and it hurts me to think hes gone. the driver(my actual bro) is getting prison time for it and it is not fair. I\'ve lost 2 brothers in the past 8 months and it sucks bad. so this song to me means that they lost someone close to them and dont know how to coupe with the fact they are gone. Also that they wonder what the person would be doing with their life if they were alive today.

    General CommentIn the area that I live, quite a while back, 25ish years I'm guessin', a very popular kid at my school died in a car wreck. Made a lot of people sad, his good friend wrote this song about him and eventualy sold it to Kenny Chesney. True story swear to god. The press box at our school is named after him.

    General CommentI heard somewhere that Kenny wrote this song for his niece...but I don't know if that's true or not.

    To me, this song is for my uncle. He died suddenly at age 36, and never got to do a lot of things with his life. He tried and tried, and I guess one day he just stopped trying. Anyway, when I hear this song, I think of all that he could have accomplished, who he could have loved. That's what this song means to me.

    General CommentMy junior year of high school a friend of mine/ classmate was died of injuries sustained from a car accident and a year later this song was played at the unvailing of his headstone the lines "sunny days seem to hurt the most" and "I wonder what you would name your babies" hit me the hardest

    Sometimes I wonder who you'd be today"

    General Commentso one of my best friends, Kevin, his older brother Sean, who graduated last year with my brother, died on monday while riding is street bike. it was so horrible, and today at his funeral, they played a slideshow of pictures of him growing up, and they played this song during it. it was so sad and amazing at the same time. i bawled my eyes out. this song will forever remind me of Sean Forrest. rest in peace buddy. we all love you.
