Annotationen

Dieses Stück klingt etwas wie Bryan Adams, allerdings noch schmusiger und sentimentaler. Der Text handelt von einem Mann, der jung Vater wird und seine Lebenspläne in Rauch aufgehen sieht. «Da verschwindet mein Leben …» heisst es im Refrain. in der dritten Strophe ist die Tochter dann selbst erwachsen und zieht aus und wieder verschwindet sein Leben, sein Alles.

Lyrics

[Verse 1] All he could think about was I'm too young for this Got my whole life ahead Hell I'm just a kid myself How am I going to raise one All he could see were his dreams going up in smoke So much for ditching this town and hanging out on the coast Oh well, those plans are long gone [Chorus] And he said There goes my life There goes my future, my everything Might as well kiss it all good-bye There goes my life [Verse 2] A couple years of up all night and a few thousand diapers later That mistake he thought he made covers up the refrigerator Oh yeah, he loves that little girl Momma's waiting to tuck her in As she fumbles up those stairs She smiles back at him dragging that teddy bear Sleep tight, blue eyes and bouncing curls [Chorus] He smiles There goes my life There goes my future, my everything I love you, daddy good-night There goes my life [Verse 3] She had that Honda loaded down With Aber crombie clothes and 15 pairs of shoes and his American Express He checked the oil and slammed the hood, said you're good to go She hugged them both and headed off to the West Coast [Chorus] And he cried There goes my life There goes my future, my everything I love you Baby good-bye [Outro] There goes my life There goes my life Baby good-bye
