"When I'm Gone" as written by Ethan Mentzer, Ben Romans, Joseph Guese, Joey Zehr and Kyle Patrick Dickherber....
Dear love
Better sit down
Bad news
Get the word out
Accidents come with conclusions

I'm numb
On the asphalt
Don't cry
Wasn't your fault
I can't feel
It's just confusion
Keep on, keep on, keep on, when I'm gone

When the lights are out
Don't be sad for long
When I'm gone
And the lights are out
I'll be shining on
I'm just gonna let my life bleed on this letter
Let my song sing on forever
I'll still love you when I'm gone

Tear drops
Paint the faces
Despair
Is contagious
Dressed in black
Clutching a red rose
Hold on, hold on, hold on, my love goes on

When the lights are out
Don't be sad for long
When I'm gone
And the lights are out
I'll be shining on
I'm just gonna let my life bleed on this letter
Let my song sing on forever
I'll still love you when I'm gone

When the lights are out
Don't be sad for long
When I'm gone
And the lights are out
I'll be shining on
I'm just gonna let my life bleed on this letter
Let my song sing on forever
I'll still love you when I'm gone

When the lights are out
Don't be sad for long
When I'm gone
And the lights are out
I'll be shining on
I'm just gonna let my life bleed on this letter
Let me song sing on forever
I'll still love you when I'm gone

    General CommentThis song is amazing.
    When they sing; "dressed in black, clutching a red rose (hold on, hold on, hold on)" and "let my song, sing on forever, I'll still love you when I'm gone"...eerily brilliant.

    General CommentI love this song. It reminds me of my friend when she passed away. She was hit by a transit train-almost like a car on pavement-and this song brings me back to when she was here. I always cry when I listen to this song. But, nonetheless it's an amzing song.

    General CommentMy friend and I have talked about the meaning of this song multipul times.

    I'm pretty sure it's about a person who is really, really sad and feels hopeless with all relationships in his life.
    "i will love you when i'm gone"
    (brilliant line) pretty much means - when he's dead he'll still love her. right? so obviously a relationship ended bad.

    (: this song brings so many emotions it really shows that the writer (ethan) of this song has real feelings (duh) it's really refreshing having amazing talent today in the music industry (:

    yay for the click five!
