When Im Gone Lyrics

Yeah, It’s my life
In my own words I guess

[ Verse 1 ]

Have you ever loved someone so much, you’d give an arm for?
Not the expression, No … literally give an arm for?
When they know they’re your heart and you know your are their armor
And you will destroy anyone who would try and harm her
But what happens when karma, turns right around and bites you?
And everything you stand for turns on you to spite you
What happens when you become the main source of a pain
Daddy look what I made, Dad’s gotta go catch a plane
Daddy where’s mummy? I can’t find mummy where is she?
I don’t know go play hailie baby, ya daddy’s busy
Daddy’s writing this song, this song ain’t gonna write itself
I’ll give one underdog, then you gotta swing by yourself
Then turn right around on that song and tell her you love her
Then put hands of her mother who’s a splitting image of her
That’s Slim Shady, Yeh baby Slim Shady’s crazy
Shady made me, but tonight shady’s rock-a-by baby

[ Chorus ] x2

And when I’m gone just carry on don’t mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I’m looking down on you smiling
And I ain’t gonna feel a thing, So baby don’t feel no pain just smile back

[ Verse 2 ]

I keep having this dream, I’m pushing Hailie on the swings
She keeps screaming, she don’t want me to sing
You’re making mummy cry, Why? Why is mummy crying
Baby daddy ain’t leaving no more, daddy you’re lying
You always say that, you always say this is the last time
But you ain’t leaving no more, Daddy you’re mine
She’s piling boxes in front of the door trying to block it
Daddy please, daddy don’t leave, daddy no stop it
Go’s in her pocket, pulls out a tiny necklace locket
It’s got a picture, this’ll keep you safe daddy take it with ya
I look up, it’s just me standing in the mirror
These fucking walls must be talking cause man I can hear ‘em.
They’re saying “You’ve got one more chance to do right” and it’s tonight
Now go out there and show that you love ‘em before it’s too late
And just as I go to walk out my bedroom door
It’s turns to a stage, they’re gone and this spotlight is on
And I’m singing…

[ Chorus ]

[ Verse 3 ]

Sixty thousand people, all jumping out their seats
The curtain closes, they’re throwing roses at my feet
I take a bow and thank you all for coming out
The scream is so loud, I take one last look at the crowd
I glance down, I don’t believe what I’m seeing
Daddy it’s me, help mummy her wrists are bleeding
But baby we’re in Sweden, how did you get to Sweden
I followed you daddy, you told me that you weren’t leaving
You lied to me dad, and now you make mummy sad
And I bought you this coin, it says ‘Number One Dad’
That’s all I wanted, I just want to give you this coin
I get the point, fine me and mummy are going
But baby wait, It’s too late dad you made the choice
Now go up there and show ‘em that you love ’em more than us
That’s what they want, they want you Marshall they keep screaming your name
It’s no wonder you can’t go to sleep, just take another pill
Yeh I bet you you will. You rap about it yeah, word, keep it real
I hear applause, all this time I couldn’t see
How could it be, that the curtain is closing on me
I turn around, find a gun on the ground, cock it
Put it to my brain and scream ‘Die Shady!’ and pop it
The sky darkens, my life flashes
The plane what I was supposed to be on crashes and burns to ashes
That’s when I wake up, Alarm clocks ringing, there’s birds singing,
It’s spring and Hailie’s outside swinging, I walk up to Kim and kiss her
Tell her I miss her
Hailie just smiles and winks at her little sister
Almost as if to say…

[ Chorus ] x2
