"If I Die Tomorrow" as written by Nikki Sixx, Charles-andre Comeau and Pierre Bouvier....
I wake up to find myself
After all these years
And though all this time has gone
It still seems so unclear

'Cause there's no one else,
Since I found you
I know its been so hard
You should know

If I die tomorrow
As the minutes fade away
I can't remember
Have I said all I can say?
Your my everything
You make me feel so alive
If I die tomorrow

It brings out the worst in me
When your not around
I miss the sound of your voice
The silence seems so loud

'Cause there's no one else,
Since I found you
I know its been so hard
You should know

If I die tomorrow
As the minutes fade away
I can't remember
Have I said all I can say?
Your my everything
You make me feel so alive
If I die tomorrow

I spent all my life
Looking for our innocence
I've got nothing to lose
One thing to prove
I won't make the same mistakes
And now I know
That everything will be okay
If I die tomorrow

If I die tomorrow
As the minutes fade away
I can't remember
Have I said all I can say?
Your my everything
You make me feel so alive
Your my everything
You make me feel so alive
If I die tomorrow
If I die tomorrow

    General CommentGreat song... very hard.
    funny thing about it though... it was actually written by Simple Plan. When they decided not to use to for their record, they gave it to Bob Rock who gave it to Motley Crue who did their own changes. So next time you hear it, remember that it coulda come close to being on a Simple Plan record.

    General CommentI LOVE this song...
    I find it very hard to imagine this song on a Simple Plan cd.
    I think the lead singer's voice sounds too "boyish" to sing this song.
    I think it sounds better harder

    General CommentAnybody watch the video to this song? I was watching it yesterday and noticed something.

    In case you haven't seen it, it has a woman in an art museum looking at many paintings when each Motley Crue member pulls her in some of them. Here's what I noticed: What is going on in the MC's painting world reflects on the roughest parts of their lives.

    Vince Neil: He's driving in a car with the chick and it appears he's driving real fast and the chick is freaking out. Didn't Vince get in a car wreck that killed someone?
    Nikki Sixx: He is in a coffin where he's dead and the chick appears as a nurse and she plunges a needle into his heart bringing him back to life. Any Crue fan should know what this is about.
    Tommy Lee: It appears he's in a jail cell and he's screaming as if in pain or agony. He did serve some time for beating up Pamela Lee when they were married.
    Mick Mars: This is one I don't know about. He is standing at the end of a cliff with wings on him and falls off as the wings fall of themselves and the chick tries to save him. Has anything similar to this happened to Mick?

    Interesting, huh?

    General CommentEasily mistaken for a love song, but Vince once said to him it's basically a message from band member to band member

    actually if you look close on that one the flames surrounding him are on spoons which is hinting at drugs for him. good song alot of meaning to it and kinda emotional considering who it is......you go from girls girls girls to if i die tomorrow

    General CommentNice observation Slipknotfan85! I actually did not notice the references to the actual events until you mentioned them.

    However, upon closer observation, I noticed that Mick Mars comes second (after Vince). He has a severe back condition and has had it for years resulting in a hip replacement a few months ago… I think this is what they are referencing.

    Nikki is last (after Tommy), and the spoons obliviously reference his heroin addiction of the mid 80\'s.

    Also, the car that Vince is driving in the Video is a Ford Pantera. This is the same car that Vince was driving home from the liquor store with friend Razzle (Hanoi Rocks). He had been drinking, and lost control of the car and ended up in an accident with a VW Beetle (if i recall correctly) killing Razzle and a passenger in the other car, and leaving the driver of the VW paralyzed. Vince escaped unscathed. I think the actual car Vince crashed, however, was red, not yellow as shown in the video.
