"When I Die" as written by and Emma Victoria Jane Anderson....
If you walked in now
I wouldn't start I wouldn't frown
And if you just appeared
I wouldn't cry or think it weird

'Cause you are still around
You're in the air, you're in the ground
And you can't go away
I am afraid you're here to stay

Friends don't understand
They close the door, they raise their hands

She says she heard your voice
Of course she does, she has no choice

I was hours ahead
When they removed you from your bed

They drank all the while
Until you said goodbye

Why are we sitting here in ourselves?
Why are we sitting here in ourselves?
Why are we sitting here in ourselves?

I don't look up, I don't look down
I look ahead and make no sound
My love was there,
I only stare

Healty in my dreams
Is what you are, is what is seems

What does it all mean?
You're only hiding behind a screen

Curse the English day
For what it forces us to say
Banish all the pain

'Cause when I die, die
I'll see you again.

    My Interpretation"Why are we sitting here, in ourselves?" is one of the best lines. It is the feeling of being trapped in one's own body. I have had this feeling sometimes when I was severely depressed.

    General CommentThis song, regardless of how it is perceived by each individual. my opinion it is about having no fear of death, spirits, and the passing of oneself in order to free the soul from this prison and hell on earth we suffer through as we finally finish our sentence!
