A young man in his early twenties
Met the girl of his dreams and they fell in love
They wanted a child more than anything
And prayed everyday to the lord above

6 years passed with their prayers unanswered
Til’ it one day happened, a baby boy born
But the kid died on the spot in the delivery room
And the man and his wife collapsed in mourn

This is the life story of an average joe
I met him in a bar a week ago
He introduced himself as John Doe
And had my attention since the first hello

He’s not the typical guy you find in a bar
No whiskey or beer, no stinkin’ cigarr
He ate his garlic bread while talking memories
I was the listener, and this was his story

4 years went by and it wasn’t easy
They lived every day with the heartache and pain
Til it one day was time for another delivery
Sunshine came and dried their tears and the rain

Their second try turned out to be a healthy baby girl
And it wasn’t a doubt what the name would be
They named the child after the mans favorite song
The new born girl got the name Keyleigh


They lived happy as the perfect family
Had the jobs, cars, and eachother and a nice apartment
Til’ one day his wife got killed
On her way home from work in a car accident

Now the man was all on his own
Left alone in this world so cold
Wanted to end his life but he couldn’t
Responsible for caring for his 2 year old

He moved 400 miles from his own family
so his daughter could be near her mommy's mom and dad
Nowadays feeling isolated from his own family
Thinks everyday of the great life he once had

But he says life’s okay now, with the daughter now seven
Sends a thought everynight to his loved one’s in heaven
Dreams of how his wife raises their first born son
And how they’ll one day reunite as one
