When I'm Gone Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
A bright sunrise will contradict the heavy fault that weighs you down
In spite of all the funeral songs
The birds will make their joyful sounds
Verse 2
You wonder why the earth still moves
You wonder how you'll carry on
But you'll be okay on that first day when I'm gone
Verse 3
Dusk will come with fireflies and whippoorwill and crickets call
And every star will take its place
And silvery gown and purple shawl
Verse 4
You'll lie down in our big bed
Dread the dark and dread the dawn
But you'll be alright on that first night when I'm gone
Verse 5
You will reach for me in vain
You'll be whispering my name
As if sorrow were your friend
And this world so in the end
Verse 6
But life will call with daffodil
And morning glorious blue skies
You'll think of me some memory
And softly smile to your surprise
Verse 7
And even though you love me still
You will know where you belong
Just give it time we'll both be fine
When I'm gone
