When I fall out
Who will leave me?
Will my voice still
Carry meaning?
Will you even know I'm gone?

Will the world still
See in color?
Will we learn to
Love each other?
Will you even know I'm gone
You won't even know I'm gone

Tell my brothers
To be brothers
To forgive me
And each other
They won't even know I'm gone

Tell my sister
Take it easy
Life will never
Be this easy
She won't even know I'm gone
You won't even know I'm gone

Tell my mother
She can hug me
I still love her
When she bugs me
She won't even know I'm gone

Tell my father
Don't feel guilty
And to follow his heart for me
He won't even know I'm gone
He won't even know I'm gone
He won't even know I'm gone
You won't even know I'm gone

    My InterpretationThis song is so emotionally beautiful, the first time I heard it I couldn't get it out of my head. I think the meaning its almost too obvious, it's basically a suicide note. Like I feel he's debating or thinking about the act of killing himself and thinking, if I'm gone, what will the world be? And he goes and lists his relationships and his feelings and how he wants them to cope almost but it all ends with, they won't even know I'm gone. So it's his realizations and his list of things he has to ponder before he can follow through with what he's thinking of doing. But I think what happens is clear because the repetition of they/she/he/you won't even know I'm gone is your answer. Despite it all, me not being here won't have a true barring on their lives.

    It's a heartbreaking song but it's also really beautiful in a tragically sad kinda way. Like I love this song even though it makes me feel really hurt for the muse it follows and honestly I cry listening to it. But I think it's a realization before suicide or if that's not correct then the muse is literally just leaving home or something and saying the same things with a little less emotional meaning problem. Though it was the tone of the singer's voice and the music that made me more keen on my first interpretation being the more relevant idea.
