Lyrics

[Intro] Yeah It's my life But all in 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 are your heart And you know you are their armour And you will destroy anyone who will try to harm her But what happens when karma turns right around and bites you And everything you stand for turns on you to spite 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 mummy? I can't find mummy, where is she?” I don't know, go play, Hailie baby your daddy's busy. Daddy's writin'a song, this song ain't gon' write itself I give you one underdog, then you gotta swing by yourself Then to write a rhyme in a song and tell her you love her And put hands on her mother who's a spittin' image of her That's slim shady, yeah baby slim shady's crazy Shady made me, but tonight, Shady's rock-a-by baby

[Chorus] [x2] And when I'm gone, just carry on don't mourn, There will be joice every time you hear the sound of my voice Just know that I'm lookin' 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 havin' this dream – I'm pushin' hailie on the swings she keeps screamin' She don't want me to sing, “You're makin mummy cry, why, why's mummy crying?” Baby, Daddy ain't leavin' no more, “Daddy you're lying, You always say that, you always say this is the last time, but you ain't leavin' no more, Daddy you're mine!” She's piling boxes infront of the door tryin' 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 with you” I look up, it's just me standin in the mirror, these thinkin' walls must be talkin coz man I can hear ‘em They sayin you got one more chance to do right, and it's tonight, Now go out there and show ‘em that you love ‘em ‘fore its too late And just as I go to walk out of my bedroom door it turns to a stage, they're gone And the spotlight is on and I'm singin… [Chorus] [x2] And when I'm gone, just carry on don't mourn, There will be joice every time you hear the sound of my voice Just know that I'm lookin' 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 jumpin' out their seat The curtain closes, they're throwing roses at my feet I take a bow, “and thank you all for comin' out” They're screamin so loud, I take one last look at the crowd I glance down, I don't believe what I'm seein', “Daddy it's me! Help mummy her wrists are bleedin'” But baby we're in Sweden, how did you get to Sweden?! “I followed you daddy, you told me that you wern't leavin You lied to me dad, and now you make mummy sad And I bought you this coin It says ‘number 1 dad', that's all I wanted I just wanna give you this coin I get the point, fine, me and mummy are goin” But baby wait- “its too late dad, you made your choice. Now go out there and show ‘em 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 fuckin pill, yeah i bet ya you will You rap about it. Yeah word, ke-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, cock it, put it to my brain, 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 out side swingin' 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] [x2] And when I'm gone, just carry on don't mourn, There will be joice every time you hear the sound of my voice Just know that I'm lookin' down on you smiling And I didn't feel a thing so baby don't feel no pain, just smile back.
