#captureyourgrief day 19: music

A dear friend of mine shared to song with me the day we found out we lost Everett. Ever since hearing it that day, it has been Everett’s song. Why? Just listen, the song speaks for itself.

Today could have been the day,

That you blow out your candles,

Make a wish as you close your eyes.

Today could have been the day,

Everybody was laughing,

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 have 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 you like no other.

Who would you be,

What would you look like,

Would you have my smile and her eyes?

Today could have 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.

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 light we never knew,

Gone too soon,

You were gone too soon

Yeah.

Not a day goes by,

That I don’t think of you.
