Hey guys, I haven't been around here in awhile but wanted to pop back in to share a song I had written about Michael back in January and am just getting around to making public as we near Michael's birthday.
This song is very dear to me, as it expresses the exquisite pain in truly discovering Michael only after his death. I know many here can relate to that.
I never thought that I could feel this way God I miss you so much I guess it's true what they say, You never really know what you've got Till it's gone...
I'm looking back and I see you smiling
And just like that I'm on the verge of crying
I just can't believe my timing
Well you were always shining in the distance
And like a shooting star, I missed it
And now you're gone from here
Out of this atmosphere...
Left in your afterglow I found what I've been searching for The sweetest love I'd ever known Why did you leave so soon Why didn't I catch up with you And now there's nothing I can do
How can I miss someone so much
Someone I never knew
But when your heart gave up
I felt like giving mine up too
I want to turn back time and
I want to hold your hand
My heart just can't accept that
You are never coming back
But I'm... Left in your afterglow With photographs from long ago And memories I'll never know Why did you leave so soon Why didn't I catch up with you And now there's nothing I can do
You've touched me so much more
Than anybody has before
More than you will ever know
You've turned me upside down and
You've turned my life around
I just can't figure out
Why you had to go
And leave me all alone
In your afterglow
