When I'm Gone Lyrics

Artist: Eminem
Album: Curtain Call: The Hits

[Intro]
Yeah
It's my life
But all in 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 are your heart
And you know you are their armour
And you will destroy anyone who will try to 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 her pain
€œDaddy look what I made?€
€œDad's gotta go catch a plane€
€œDaddy where's mummy? I can't find mummy, where is she?€
I don't know, go play, Hailie baby your daddy's busy.
Daddy's writin'a
song, this song ain't gon' write itself
I give you one underdog, then you gotta swing by yourself
Then to write a rhyme in a song and tell her you love her
And put hands on her mother who's a spittin' image of her
That's slim shady, yeah 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 lookin' down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing so baby don't feel no pain, just smile back

[Verse 2]
I keep havin' this dream - I'm pushin' hailie on the swings she keeps screamin'
She don't want me to sing, €œYou're makin mummy cry, why, why's mummy crying?€
Baby, Daddy ain't leavin' no more,
€œDaddy you're lying,
You always say that, you always say this is the last time,
but you ain't leavin' no more, Daddy you're mine!€
She's piling boxes infront of the door tryin' to block it,
€œDaddy please daddy don't leave daddy no, stop it!€
Goes in her pocket, pulls out a tiny necklace locket, it's got a picture,
€œThis'll keep you safe daddy, take it with you€
I look up, it's just me standin in the mirror, these fucking walls must be talkin coz man I can hear 'em
They sayin you got one more chance to do right, and it's tonight,
Now go out there and show 'em that you love 'em 'fore its too late
And just as I go to walk out of my bedroom door it turns to a stage, they're gone
And the spotlight is on and I'm singin€

[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 lookin' down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing so baby don't feel no pain, just smile back

[Verse 3]
Sixty thousand people, all jumpin' out their seat
The curtain closes, they're throwing roses at my feet
I take a bow, €œand thank you all for comin' out€
They're screamin so loud, I take one last look at the crowd
I glance down, I don't believe what I'm seein',
€œDaddy it's me! Help mummy her wrists are bleedin'€
But baby we're in Sweden, how did you get to Sweden?!
€œI followed you daddy, you told me that you wern't leavin
You lied to me dad, and now you make mummy sad
And I bought you this coin
It says 'number 1 dad', that's all I wanted
I just wanna give you this coin
I get the point, fine, me and mummy are goin€
But baby wait-
€œits too late dad, you made your choice. Now go out there and show 'em that you love 'em more than us
That's what they want
They want you Marshall, they keep
screamin your name, it's no wonder you can't go to sleep
Just take another pill, yeah i bet ya you will
You rap about it. Yeah word, ke-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, scream 'Die Shady!' and pop it
The sky darkens, my life flashes,
The plane that I was supposed to be on crashes and burns to ashes
That's when I wake up, alarm clock's ringin',
There's birds singin', it's spring and
Hailie's out side swingin'
I walk right 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]
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 lookin' down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing so baby don't feel no pain, just smile back.
