I Died Too Young
Lyrics
I Died Too Young

I sit alone
Heart turn to stone
I lost my hope
I have no faith

I have so much
It's not enough
I must confess
My head's a mess

I died too young
My Passion gone
Where did I go wrong

Only think about myself
Don't care what anyone says
I just talk to myself
I ain't got nobody left

I've never been that strong
Never learned how to be loved
Never felt like I was enough
Never felt like I belonged

I died too young
My Passion gone
Where did I go wrong

I died too young
My Passion gone
Where did I go wrong

It's time to live

Solo

I died too young
My Passion gone
Where did I go wrong

It's time to live
Short Song Description:
I Died Too Young is a song about death and life. Passion verse depression. Hope verse hurt. It simply asks the listener in the end....to live.
Story Behind the Song:
Damon sent me the music to this track and instantly I was drawn to it. I saw Chris Cornell, Layne Stayley, Kurt Cobain and other singers we have lost early over the years and I wrote the chorus instantly.

As I began writing the song I thought that this message doesn't just apply to popular musicians. It applies to everyone to include myself.

I have lived so many years not pursuing my passion of creating music or doing what I love and as a result I have not felt complete. I thought of my dad, my friends, strangers, etc. In the end, I felt anyone who is not living their passion could identify with this song.
