Kenny Chesney There Goes My Life Lyrics

Last updated: 10/10/2013 08:06:07 AM

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'm I gonna raise one.

All he could see were his dreams goin' up in smoke.
So much for ditchin' this town and hangin' out on the coast.
Oh well, those plans are long gone.

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.......

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 bouncin' curls.

He smiles.....
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
I love you, daddy good-night.
There goes my life.

She had that Honda loaded down.
With Abercrombie 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.

And he cried,
There goes my life.
There goes my future, my everything.
I love you.
Baby good-bye.

There goes my life.
There goes my life.
Baby good-bye.

A Different Perspective | Reviewer: Tony | 1/14/08

I am not viewing this song from the same persective as most.

I am 15 yrs old and have a little baby sister. Before she was born I had came to believe a new sibling was going to mess up the family, at the hospital on the day she was born, all those thoughts vanished. She is know to and I am watching her grow and its amazing. I secretly promise on the day she was born (to her) that I would never let anything happen to her. Every time I look into her sweet inoccent brown eyes and hear her call my name, I constnatly remind myself that one day, I won't be able to wrap my arms around her and keep her safe, as she will be entering the real world.

Kenny do great with this song and it can affect many people, as it did me!

My Husband of 7 years and I can relate to this story. We got pregnant a year after I finished high school and we both were so scared and we thought well our lives have ended...We have a beautiful lil girl and now a lil boy and they are our life. Thanks Kenny for doing this song!

Wonderful | Reviewer: Kyle | 6/20/06

This song is really touching because I can relate to it. I had huge plans for after high school and I got my girlfriend of a year pregnant and that changed everything. I thought that it was going to be bad but now I have a wonderful wife and 2 children couldn't ask for anything more. Keep up the good work Kenny! Love your music!
