I Dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
Cause no one else cared

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving?
When I'm done here

So if you're asking me
I want you to know

When my time comes, (Chorus)
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind,
Some reasons to be missed

Don't resent me, and (Chorus2)
When you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
And leave out all the rest,
Leave out all the rest

Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating
I've shared what I made

I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

So if you're asking me now
I want you to know

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind,
Some reasons to be missed

Don't resent me, and
When you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
And leave out all the rest,
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting all the hurt inside
You learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else
Can come and save me from myself

I can't be who you are

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind,
Some reasons to be missed

Don't resent me, and
When you're feelilng empty
Keep me in your memory
And leave out all the rest,
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting all the hurt inside
You've learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else
Can come and save me from myself

I can't be who you are
I can't be who you are

    General CommentI think this song is about someone telling another that when they are dead and gone to not be mad at them for leaving, love them. Dont forget them and remember the good times. The title of the song on here is correct by the way. I got this from the chorus

    "Don't resent me, and
    When you're feeling empty
    Keep me in your memory
    And leave out all the rest,
    Leave out all the rest"

    as well as
    "When my time comes
    Forget the wrong that I've done
    Help me leave behind,
    Some reasons to be missed"

    Also, the person who is dieing is worried about his legacy. What is he leaving behind? And what impact it will have. I got that from the above passage and

    " Dreamed I was missing
    You were so scared
    But no one would listen
    Cause no one else cared

    After my dreaming
    I woke with this fear
    What am I leaving?
    When I'm done here"
