When I'm Gone - Eminem Lyrics

Yeah
It's my life
My own words I guess

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
"Daddy look what I made?"
"Dad's gotta go catch a plane"
"Daddy where's mommy?
I can't find mommy, where is she?"
I don't know, go play, Hailie baby your daddy's busy.
Daddy's writin' this song, this song
ain't gon' write itself
I give you one underdog,
you gotta swing by yourself
Then turn right around in that 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

Refrão (2x):
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

I keep havin' this dream -
I'm pushin' Hailie on the swings she keeps screamin'
She don't want me to sing,
"You're makin mommy cry, why,
why's momy crying?"
Baby, Daddy ain't leavin' no more,
"Daddy 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,
"Daddy please daddy don't leave daddy no, stop it!"
Goes in her pocket,
pulls out a tiny necklace locket,
it's got a picture,
"This'll keep you safe daddy, take it with you"
I look up, it's just me standin' in the mirror,
these fuckin' 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...

Refrão
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

Sixty thousand people, all jumpin' out their seat
The curtain closes, they're throwing roses at my feet
I take a bow, "and 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',
"Daddy it's me! Help mummy
her wrists are bleedin'"
But baby we're in Sweden,
how did you get to Sweden?!
"I followed you daddy, you told me that you wern't leavin
You lied to me dad,
and now you make mommy 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 mommy are goin"
But baby wait-
"its 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-

Refrão
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

    So sad, not bad, it's great and we can tell during this song he was mad, Eminem is not slim shady, Eminem is a trash rapper, slim shady wants to have fun, and marshal wants to destroy Kim

    Great song. Reminds you to keep those close to you no matter how far apart they are. Those also who are right there by your side.
