Gone Too Soon by Simple Plan

What do you think?

Simple Plan are a Canadian band. They released the song ‘Gone Too Soon’ in 2011 as a result of many famous, talented singers, artists and actors losing their lives to drug overdoses and suicides. 

As drummer Chuck Corneau explained it on the Simple Plan website “We thought it was so sad to see that; so much talent being wasted. Also there were people in our family and some great friends we lost. So the song is a combination of all that. Yes the song is about missing someone who is gone”. 

Singer Pierre Bouvier adds “Hopefully this song can help people that are going through similar situations where they feel like someone in their family or one of their friends has gone too soon.”

Lyrics

Hey there now
Where’d you go
You left me here
So unexpected
You changed my life
I hope you know
‘Cause now I’m lost
So unprotected
In the blink of an eye
I never got to say goodbye
Like a shooting star
Flying across the room
So fast so far
You were gone too soon
You’re a part of me
And I’ll never be the same here without you
You were gone too soon
You were always there
Like a shining light
On my darkest days
You were there to guide me
Oh I miss you now
I wish you could see
Just how much your memory
Will always mean to me
In the blink of an eye
I never got to say goodbye
Like a shooting star
Flying across the room
So fast so far
You were gone too soon
You’re a part of me
And I’ll never be the same here without you
You were gone too soon
Shine on
Shine on
On to a better place
Shine on
Shine on
We’ll never be the same
Shine on
Shine on
Like a shooting star
Flying across the room
So fast so far
You were gone too soon
You’re a part of me
And I’ll never be the same here without you
You were gone too soon
You were gone too soon
(Shine on shine on)
You were gone too soon
(Shine on shine on)
You were gone too soon
