    Interesting song

    I just thought i'd share this. As most people know, Eminem is a really raunchy singer. Most of his songs are filled with sex, profanity, violence, and things that would shock most people. But he makes some songs which are so deep that it's almost like a totally different person wrote them. Here is one of Eminem's songs which I recently found, called "When I'm Gone." One profanity, which I have changed to "freakin'" for here (majority of his songs are filled with cursing).

    I think some of us can relate, because we forget the things which are really important and risk losing them.



    "When I'm Gone"-- eminem

    [Introduction]
    Yeah...
    It's my life...
    My own words I guess...

    [Verse 1]
    Have you ever loved someone so much, you'd give an arm for?
    Not the expression, no, literally give an arm for?
    When they know they're your heart
    And you know you were their armour
    And you will destroy anyone who would try to harm 'her
    But what happens when karma, turns right around and bites you?
    And everything you stand for, turns on you, despite you?
    What happens when you become the main source of her pain?
    "Daddy look what I made", Dad's gotta go catch a plane
    "Daddy where's Mommy? I can't find Mommy where is she?"
    I don't know go play Hailie, baby, your Daddy's busy
    Daddy's writing a song, this song ain't gonna write itself
    I'll give you one underdog then you gotta swing by yourself
    Then turn right around in that song and tell her you love her
    And put hands on her mother, who's a spitting image of her
    That's Slim Shady, yeah baby, Slim Shady's crazy
    Shady made me, but tonight Shady's rocka-by-baby...

    [Chorus]
    And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
    Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
    Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
    And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
    Just smile back
    And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
    Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
    Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
    And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
    Just smile back...

    [Verse 2]
    I keep having this dream, I'm pushin' Hailie on the swing
    She keeps screaming, she don't want me to sing
    "You're making Mommy cry, why? Why is Mommy crying?"
    Baby, Daddy ain't leaving no more, "Daddy you're lying
    "You always say that, you always say this is the last time
    "But you ain't leaving no more, Daddy you're mine"
    She's piling boxes in front of the door trying to block it
    "Daddy please, Daddy don't leave, Daddy - no stop it!"
    Goes in her pocket, pulls out a tiny necklace locket
    It's got a picture, "this'll keep you safe Daddy, take it withcha'"
    I look up, it's just me standing in the mirror
    These freakin' walls must be talking, cuz man I can hear 'em
    They're saying "You've got one more chance to do right" - and it's tonight
    Now go out there and show that you love 'em before it's too late
    And just as I go to walk out of my bedroom door
    It's turns to a stage, they're gone, and this spotlight is on
    And I'm singing...

    [Chorus]
    And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
    Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
    Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
    And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
    Just smile back
    And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
    Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
    Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
    And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
    Just smile back...

    [Verse 3]
    Sixty thousand people, all jumping out their seat
    The curtain closes, they're throwing roses at my feet
    I take a bow and thank you all for coming out
    They're screaming so loud, I take one last look at the crowd
    I glance down, I don't believe what I'm seeing
    "Daddy it's me, help Mommy, her wrists are bleeding,"
    But baby we're in Sweden, how did you get to Sweden?
    "I followed you Daddy, you told me that you weren't leavin'
    "You lied to me Dad, and now you make Mommy sad
    "And I bought you this coin, it says 'Number One Dad'
    "That's all I wanted, I just want to give you this coin
    "I get the point - fine, me and Mommy are going"
    But baby wait, "it's too late Dad, you made the choice
    "Now go out there and show 'em that you love 'em more than us"
    That's what they want, they want you Marshall, they keep.. screamin' your name
    It's no wonder you can't go to sleep, just take another pill
    Yeah, I bet you you will. You rap about it, yeah, word, k-keep it real
    I hear applause, all this time I couldn't see
    How could it be, that the curtain is closing on me
    I turn around, find a gun on the ground, **** it
    Put it to my brain and scream "die Shady" and pop it
    The sky darkens, my life flashes, the plane that I was supposed to be on crashes and burns to ashes
    That's when I wake up, alarm clock's ringin', there's birds singin'
    It's Spring and Hailie's outside swinging, I walk right up to Kim and kiss her
    Tell her I miss her, Hailie just smiles and winks at her little sister
    Almost as if to say..

    [Chorus/Outro]
    And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
    Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
    Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
    And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
    Just smile back
    And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
    Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
    Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
    And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel no pain
    Just smile back...

    Re: Interesting song

    Well, I just thought it was...Sometimes in life we let things get out of the way of what's important...Guess I just interpreted it differently. Another song of his which is cool is Mocking bird, which is about his daughter and his struggle with being a "good father."

    Re: Interesting song

    I kind of enjoy Eminem. He's my guilty pleasure. But to even for one minute try to find profundity in his lyrics is absolutely amazing to me.

    No, I totally get what you mean, I have a bias, I think he is a total tool, and I can't stand him. So that kind of makes it hard for me to take life lessons from a guy like that.

    In all fairness, this section of the song made me so happy and hopeful for all mankind: Dream a little dream.

    Re: Interesting song

    Just goes to show you that the youth of America's search for meaning is taking them to some pretty shallow waters.

    Same here. I just enjoy looking at him.

    Now, to me, your search for meaning should take you to places like this:


    Buttons [Snoop Dogg]

    Baby can't you see (see)
    How these clothes are fittin' on me (me)
    And the heat comin' from this beat (beat)
    I'm about to blow, I don't think you know

    Max, you have to look deeper.....

    Quotes from Eminem:

    "I don't want them once they turn 18." - On Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera

    "I hate b**ches. [One] f**ked up, and it made me look at girls as sl*ts." - On girls

    "A bunch of girls, swinging from a nice chandelier, landing on top of me naked...while I lay in a pool of steaming hot water!" A Spring Break fantasy

    Suddenly it's like a light bulb went on in my head. I get it now. I understand.
