Kevin Skinner (Below)

I don't do too much reality tv and I'm certainly not a country music fan, but I did happen to catch the performance by the fellow in the video capture below and I have to admit I did find it very touching. Occasionally (and not often enough in my life) people are surprising in a good way. I hope you enjoy the video.

Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark

the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt
the way I feel about her in my heart
If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That shes my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes
cause Ive lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where theres no second chance to tell her how I feel

Love the lyrics! When my father-in-law passed away after a long battle with cancer, it tore me up that I had never told him I loved him. He wasn't the kind of person you did that with and I was always afraid that doing it would make everything seem to final. Now I never let a day go by without telling my family how much I love them.
