"When I'm Gone" as written by Donald L. Von Tress and Billy Ray Cyrus....
We're doing it

I look around me,
But all I seem to see,
Is people going no where,
Expecting sympathy

It's like we're going through the motions,
Of a scripted destiny
Tell me where's our inspiration,
If life wont wait,
I guess it's up to me

Woah!
No, we're not gonna waste another moment in this town
Woah!
And we won't come back your world is calling out
Woah!
We'll leave the past in the past,
Gonna find the future
If misery loves company well,
So long, you'll miss me when I'm gone

Ooh, ooh, ooh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Procrastination, running circles in my head
While you sit there contemplating,
You wound up left for dead (left for dead)
Life is what happens while you're busy making your excuses
Another day, another casualty
And that won't happen to me

Woah!
No, we're not gonna waste another moment in this town
Woah!
And we won't come back your world is calling out
Woah!
We'll leave the past in the past,
Gonna find the future
If misery loves company well,
So long, you'll miss me when I'm gone

Ooh, ooh, ooh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Ooh, ooh, ooh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
When I'm gone, when I'm gone

Let's go!

Won't look back,
When I say goodbye
I'm gonna leave this a hole behind me,
Gonna take what's mine tonight
Because every wasted day becomes a wasted chance
You're gonna wake up feeling sorry,
Because life won't wait,
I guess it's up to you

Woah!
No, we're not gonna waste another moment in this town
Woah!
And we won't come back your world is calling out
Woah!
We'll leave the past in the past,
Gonna find the future
If misery loves company well,
So long, you'll miss me when I'm gone

Ooh, ooh, ooh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Ooh, ooh, ooh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Ooh, ooh, ooh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone
Ooh, ooh, ooh
You're gonna miss me when I'm gone

    General CommentHey, nice new SP. Very good lyrics. Not even whiney.

    Well, I think, basically, his town is dragging him down and the people in it are also dragging him down as well, and he just has had enough, gets up, and ditches.

    Oh, if only I could do that.

    General CommentThe town and the people there are all the same and boring. They are holding back. He finally realizes what has been going on for years and he needs to get out of there. He's thinking about what would happen if... but he's tired of it and is ready for a change :]

    i love this song.
    it's amazing.
