lyrics

AFTER I’M GONE


I don’t know why I do it
I just do it
And if I wouldn’t do it
I’d just screw it

I need the motion
I don’t need emotion
I’m a wave in the Pacific Ocean
Don’t ask me questions
I won’t reply at all

Cause this life just goes on after I’m gone after I’m gone
I’ve got to get work done before I’m gone before I’m gone

Why was I born
I just don’t wanna know it
I am not strong
But I try to ease my mind
Happiness is just a passerby
It ain’t no product you can easily sell or buy
I’m getting closer
I can’t stay behind

Cause this life just goes on after I’m gone after I’m gone
I’ve got to get work done before I’m gone before I’m gone
Before I’m gone
After I’m gone

My motor’s running and I’m heading somewhere
It may be nowhere, but in the end we’ll see
Half of my life I spent it analyzing
Now the time has come to work and let things be
I’m a traveler without a destiny

Cause this life just goes on after I’m gone after I’m gone
I’ve got to get work done before I’m gone before I’m gone
before I’m


This life just goes on after I’m gone after I’m gone
I’ve got to get work done before I’m gone before I’m gone before I’m

This life just goes on after I’m gone after I’m gone after…
I’ve got to get work done before I’m gone before I’m gone
Before I’m…
