Gone Too Soon

Album: Dangerous (1991)
Charted: 33
  • 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 afternoon
    Gone too soon

    Like a castle
    Built upon a sandy beach
    Gone too soon

    Like a perfect flower
    That is just beyond your reach
    Gone too soon

    Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight
    Here one day
    Gone one night

    Like a sunset
    Dying with the rising of the moon
    Gone too soon

  • Miles from Vancouver, CanadaI performed this song at karaoke in honor of my friend Kathryn who I only knew for the last three months of her life. She was doing very well when I first met her and died of an aneurysm, which I didn't know about until two months after it happened. Performing that song, of course, was a one-time event.
  • Betty from Bedford, OhThis song makes you think of all the people that have gone too soon. Everytime I hear it, it brings memories of my grandmother who died way too young and too soon. I miss you Grandma!!
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdWhen one hears the song today one wonders if Michael Jackson had a sixth sense.
  • Judy from Orlando, FlSorry Teddy, he was always "credible"...there are those who will always hate him, but most will always love him and for the undecided, the facts are out there, just look.
  • Chris from California, CaI cry now everytime I listen to this song.
