A  new song has surfaced that shows that Mindy McCready’s talent was as great, as her life was tragic. The song,  I’ll See You Yesterday” is the final song that Mindy recorded before her death.

The song was written by Courtney Dashe, who is an up and coming song writer in Nashville. Carrie Underwood had the song on hold for sometime but when she passed on recording it, Dashe a friend of Mindy’s,  gave it to her. It wasn’t until after both David and Mindy’s death did Dashe become aware that Mindy and David Wilson, her producer boyfriend, had recorded the song.

The since being posted on YouTube has gone viral and is getting air play on many on radio stations across the country. Before her death Mindy was planing on making the video a PSA for Suicide Prevention.

‘I’ll See You Yesterday’ tells the story of a woman afraid to look forward because she doesn’t like what she’s facing.

If we’re really telling the truth
things don’t look the way that they use to
these conversations long overdue
cause I can’t look it through
cause we’re all I knew

I was your sunlight, but now I’m just a shade
I was your blue sky, Now I’m just the rain
I was your favorite song, but Now I’m overplayed
If tomorrow’s gonna be the same
I’ll see you yesterday.
I’ll see you yesterday.

Let’s get lost in our memories
That’s the safest place we can be
If this is the end of our story,
I don’t wanna read it, I just wanna keep it well.

I was your sunlight, but Now I’m just a shade
I was your blue sky, Now I’m just the rain
I was your favorite song, but Now I’m overplayed
If tomorrow’s gonna be the same
I’ll see you yesterday

I’ll see you in my dreams
and in every single moment you miss something to me
just like the photographs
I’d keep the very best
cause baby that’s the way I will remember it

I was your sunlight, Now I’m just a shade
I was your blue sky, Now I’m just the rain
I was your favorite song, Now I’m overplayed
If tomorrow’s gonna be the same
they said tomorrow’s gonna be the same
I’ll see you yesterday.
I’ll see you yesterday.

Every day in the U.S. there are close to 105 deaths by suicide. Death by suicide is preventable. The warning signs that someone is at risk for talking their own life can be very subtle, but they are there. The risk of suicide is greater if a behavior is new or has increased and if it seems related to a painful event, loss, or change…which happened in Mindy’s case with the death of her live-in boyfriend David Wilson.

Warning Signs:Suicide

  •    Talking about wanting to die or to kill themselves.
  •     Looking for a way to kill themselves, such as searching online or buying a gun
  •     Talking about feeling hopeless or having no reason to live.
  •     Talking about feeling trapped or in unbearable pain.
  •     Talking about being a burden to others.
  •     Increasing the use of alcohol or drugs.
  •     Acting anxious or agitated; behaving recklessly.
  •     Sleeping too little or too much.
  •     Withdrawing or isolating themselves.
  •     Showing rage or talking about seeking revenge.
  •     Displaying extreme mood swings.
