"Before I Go" as written by and Scott Douglas Victor/brewer Russo....
Life hurts so bad
Don't want you sad
Just look back to
Good times we had
I'd give my soul for you I know
Want to hold you before I go
Before I go

I need you to know
I'm still alive in you
It's my time to go
Don't stay up late
I'm not afraid

And I don't want your heart to break
I know I've seen what's been unseen
Live fast, die young
It's part of me
(It's my time now)
Before I go

(It's my time now)
My soul is on it's way
(It's my time now)
I need you to know
Before I go

    General CommentIf I ever decide to kill myself, these are the lyrics I'll write in my suicide note. Positive, eh?

    General CommentI cried after listening to this song. I found out about it right before a good friend of mine was leaving for the Marines. I played it for him before he left and we had a moment. Hehe...he tells me that he has the lyrics near him at all times to think of me. Its a depressing song, but its great. Gotta love Unwritten Law.

    General Commenti don't think its about suicide cause the lyrics are too umm don't worry its going to be ok type of song. know what i mean? like the person is dieing from a disease or something and telling their love that its going to be ok. one of the major lines that i think make it not about suicide is "Im not afraid and I dont want your heart to break" kind of saying that he can't stop his death and he's not afraid to die even though he doesn't want to die cause he knows how much its going to hurt the person he loves. i don't know about most people but sometimes in the darkest days having someone love you is the only reason for not committing suicide. if someone does love him i don't think he would kill himself. that's just how i understand the song.
