"When I Die" as written by Cyrus William Bolooki, Chad Everett Gilbert, Ian R. Grushka, Stephen Lee Klein and Jordan I. Pundik....
Now I have finally accepted
We will never stand in the same room
I can never hear your voice of reason
At least you didn't, didn't feel a thing

When I was younger, you would tell me
That I should wait to grow up
That things don't go always as planned
At least you didn't, didn't feel a thing

No, you didn't, didn't have to feel a thing
No, you didn't feel

When I die, I'll be fine
'Cause I know you're always there
When I die, I'm alright
'Cause I know you'll be there, you are home

Now I'm standing at a crossroad
Don't know which path is calling me
I wanna follow in your footsteps
So you know you're never alone

No, you didn't, didn't have to feel a thing
No, you're never alone

When I die, I'll be fine
'Cause I know you're always there
When I die, I'm alright
'Cause I know you'll be there, you are home

I'm still here but I'm waiting
For our long conversations
I'm still here but I'm waiting to go home

When I die, I'll be fine
'Cause I know you're always there
When I die, I'm alright
'Cause I know you'll be there, you are home
(No, you didn't, didn't have to feel a thing)

No, you didn't, didn't have to feel a thing
You are home, you are home

    General CommentYeah, it's really a great song. I love it, but I can't really distinguish a favorite, personally...

    ...just about reconnecting with a lost loved one... nice song, great lyrics...

    General CommentI fucking love this song! Best song on the CD by far, I agree with mags2424! I can totally relate to it. After my boyfriend passed away a couple months ago I've been totally down, but I know I have a kick ass person watching over me and I'll know he will be up there when it's my time to get there, too.

    General CommentThis song was written by Chad about the death of his father from a heart attack. What makes this song unique is that its not a 'feel bad for me' kind of song, it is very positive. Don't be afraid of death, because someone you miss and love very much will be there waiting for you.

    General Commentthis song kinda has the same sort of vibe as their song sonny.
    it takes something as sad as death, and shows you the up sides.
    love them both.

    General Commentits such a reassuring song that almost suggests death isnt the end. even if that isnt the case and death is a dead end its still a great song with plenty of uplifting lyrics to help anyone thts lost someone.

    My Opinionso I'm totally on the same page in that this song is about mourning the positives of a lost loved one, etc
    and i'm wondering, though, could the lines
    "Now I'm standing at a crossroad
    don't know which path is calling me
    I wanna follow in your footsteps
    so you know you're never alone"
    be interpreted as the feeling of wanting to take your own life when you're consumed by the death?
    just wondering..

    this song makes me cry btw :(
    its so sweet
