BODY COUNT


When I'm Gone Lyrics (feat. Amy Lee)

During the making of this album, I received the unfortunate news that Nipsey Hussle was murdered in Los Angeles
It really hurt me, and then the outcry and love and support after his death was incredible
But it inspired me to write this song

Every day we lose somebody close to us, a loved one
And only then do we seem to find the time and the way to tell 'em how much we care about 'em

Don't tell me that you miss me
Don't tell me that you love me
Don't tell me that you need me
Don't wait to tell me that you love me

When I'm gone
This is our life
When I'm gone
This is our time

Don't wait 'til I'm dead until these words are said
Don't wait until I die and then start to fake cry
Tell the people that you love that you love 'em now
Show the people you appreciate just how
How much they mean to ya, how much you care how real it is
They're right in front of ya, your family, your wife, your kids
Don't wait for tragedy to tell 'em how you really feel
Don't wait, tomorrow might be too f*ckin' late

When I'm gone
This is our life
Don't wait to tell me that you miss me
When I'm gone
This is our time
Don't wait to tell me that you love me
When I'm gone
This is our life
Don't wait to tell me that you need me
When I'm gone
We can't afford to waste the moment

I'll be lost without you
How do I make it right
How do I take back all the time I've wasted alone
How would it make you feel
How would it make you feel
Knowing you had the chance and let it slip away
Don't wait until I'm dead
You've got friends
Tell 'em that you care
You've got family
Tell 'em how you feel
Don't wait to say how great a guy I was
And all that bullshit

When I'm gone
This is our life
Don't wait to tell me that you miss me
When I'm gone
This is our time
Don't wait to tell me that you love me
When I'm gone
This is our life
Don't wait to tell me that you need me
When I'm gone
We can't afford to waste the moment

Seems like every day death comes unexpectedly
Seems like yesterday my man was sittin' next to me
So many things I could've said and that we could've done
The reaper's comin' but I never thought he'd be the one
I don't do funerals, don't wanna see you in no box
I miss my homies and my love for them will never stop
Don't have regret and wait until your loved one dies
Now's your chance, tell 'em while they're still alive

When I'm gone
This is our life
Don't wait to tell me that you miss me
When I'm gone
This is our time
Don't wait to tell me that you love me
When I'm gone
This is our life
Don't wait to tell me that you need me
When I'm gone
We can't afford to waste the moment

Too many people pass away every single day
And we don't show 'em how we feel until it's too late
I appreciate or love is something we won't say
We delay it 'til they're gone and say it at their grave

We delay it 'til they're gone and say it at their grave
'Til they're gone and say it at their grave
