Allday – When I’m Gone lyrics

[Chorus]

I can rest my sleepy eyes

And know it’s all gonna be alright

When I’m gone, when I’m gone

[Verse 1]

Up February night, born in this flashing light

Another life begun thanks to Barry White

And I’m very white, yeah, my skin is crystal

Little soldier to mould into an individual

Now I’m in the middle, the world revolves around me

It’s bound to be about me ’til I’m old, then I’m out-y

‘Til I’m gone, ’til I’m gone

The world puts it hands on you and it chews you up

Spits you out, you’re clean, now you choose your path

We can never do enough

So we try to find some beauty in love, the stupid stuff

We are fatally flawed, we’re only human

So in the night hope I leave only ruins

When I’m gone, when I’m gone

When I’m dying, put an end to this confusion

[Chorus]

When I’m gone, I can R.I.P. in the clouds

And ask God what it’s all about

When I’m gone, when I’m gone

When I’m gone, I can rest my sleepy eyes

And everything’s gonna be alright

When I’m gone, when I’m gone

[Verse 2]

Man, what is this life? Shit, you’re all getting it

Me, I’m just choking up, need more Ventalin

Me, I’m on everything medicine when I’m numb blue

They told me much once more and I know it’s true

You can never satisfy a stomach that is bottomless

I think I’ve kind of got a grip on what the problem is

I’m gone, already gone

Yeah, more bitches, that’s what I was wishing for

If I had three wishes, I’d wish for four

We work our fingers to the bone and get better shit

Then we can’t find a second to spend our shit

And if heaven exists, I’ll never get in

All the deadly sins I did and terrible things

I’m gone, I’m so far gone

Remember me, the devilish prince

[Chorus]

When I’m gone, I can R.I.P. in the clouds

And ask God what it’s all about

When I’m gone, when I’m gone

When I’m gone, I can rest my sleepy eyes

And everything’s gonna be alright

When I’m gone, when I’m gone

[Verse 3]

Maybe I should have done better

Maybe I should have stayed

You can never show me evidence

That this is all fake

And I know you’re so handsome

And I’m just fallen snow

[Bridge]

But when I’m gone, but when I’m gone

Just let me go

But when I’m gone, but when I’m gone

Just let me go

But when I’m gone, but when I’m gone

Just let me go

But when I’m gone, but when I’m gone

Just let me go

But when I’m gone, but when I’m gone

Just let me go

[Chorus]

When I’m gone, I can R.I.P. in the clouds

And ask God what it’s all about

When I’m gone, when I’m gone

When I’m gone, I can rest my sleepy eyes

And everything’s gonna be alright

When I’m gone, when I’m gone

[Outro: Interview sample]

"Chris, you’re recognised as one of the best pros ever. What tips do you have for anyone who wants to be a pro skater?"

"Just concentrate on your skateboarding and don’t get confused with all the business. You’ve gotta concentrate on that instead of concentrating on who your sponsor is and what they do for you. That’ll come to you when you skate good, and that’s all you should concentrate on."
