"Gone Too Soon" as written by Christopher A. Daughtry and Michael James Ryan Busbee....
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 me for the very first time?
Today could've been the next day of the rest of your life

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you
I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose
Such a ray of light we never knew
Gone too soon, yeah

Would you have been president?
Or a painter, an author or sing like your mother
One thing is evident
Would've given all I had

Would've loved ya like no other
Who would you be?
What would you look like?
Would you have my smile and her eyes?
Today could've been the next day of the rest of your life

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you
I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose
Such a ray of light we never knew
Gone too soon, yeah

Not a day goes by, oh
I'm always asking why, oh

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you
I'm always asking why this crazy world had to lose
Such a beautiful life we never knew
Gone too soon
You were gone too soon, yeah

And not a day goes by
That I don't think of you

    Song MeaningThis song is incredible. Very emotional and one of the best on the album. It's about the loss of a child stated by Chris Daughtry himself. Very emotional even for him with the birth of his twins around the time this song was made.

    General CommentTrust me. This is not a song you want to come up on your random play list while you are recovering from a miscarriage. I'm sorry Daughtry, this song is beautiful but I can't listen to it right now.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song, sitting here almost in tears. Think I'll have to switch over to something more cheery for a while. Brilliant song!
