Before You Go Lyrics

I fell by the wayside like everyone else
I hate you, I hate you, I hate you, but I was just kidding myself
Our every moment, I start to replace
'Cause now that they're gone, all I hear are the words that I needed to say

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well, time can heal, but this won't

So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
So, before you go

Was never the right time, whenever you called
Went little by little by little until there was nothing at all
Our every moment, I start to replay
But all I can think about is seeing that look on your face

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well, some can heal, but this won't

So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
So, before you go

Would we be better off by now
If I'd have let my walls come down?
Maybe, I guess we'll never know
You know, you know

Before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
So, before you go

Before You Go Meanings

This song is talking about the impact of suicides of closed ones on the people left behind. There are many incidences when you start blaming yourself for the suicide of your loved ones. because you believe that you could've done more. This song is basically expressing that guilt and regret. You try to hate the person that left you, but eventually start hating yourself for not doing better, or for not realizing what that person was going through emotionally.

I feel the song “before you go” is about the artist sharing his thought so about someone he lost through an illness or sucide. The artist I saw expressing how’s angry he felt towards the person for going and then how angry he feels for not doin anything to stop it. The song in particular Is a really sad song filled with regret and pain. It also explains the after math effect that death has on people.
