Quebéc, Canada

Sharon wishes life could have been simpler after news of a devastating tragedy.

Lyrics

Something has happened to Alexander
Had barely turned 15
Got a phone call from a woman I’d never met

I wish that he
Could have grown to become a man
And I could be
Just another mom

I had so much hope for the future
The good would outweigh the bad
I knew him more than he knew himself

I wish that he
Could have grown to become a man
And I could be
Just another mom

I could have said, Boy
Those teenage years were tough
Got to stop wishing for what was or wasn’t
The thoughts keep coming back
Why didn’t we do this
Why didn’t we do that
Why didn’t we do this
Why didn’t we do that

Something has happened to Alexander
Had barely turned 15
I love him more than... he loved himself

I wish that he
Could have grown to become a man
And I could be
Just another mom

I wish that he
Could have grown to become a man
And I could be
Just another mom
