Bowling For Soup – When We Die lyrics

Well, I know that it's early and it's too hard to think
And the broken empty bottles are a reminder in the sink
But I thought that I should tell you, if it's not to late to say
I could put back all the pieces, they just might not fit the same

Cause nothing's worth losing especially the chance to make it right

And I know that we're gonna be fine
And the tattooed mistakes are gonna fade over time
As long as we live, time passes by
And we won't get it back when we die

Well, I know it's been years now, and I don't look the same
And the hopes and dreams you had for me you thought went down the drain.
And the room feels so empty where my pictures used to be
And I can't say that I blame you, but you can't blame me

Cause nothing's worth losing especially the chance to make it right

And I know that we're gonna be fine
And the tattooed mistakes are gonna fade over time
As long as we live, time passes by
And we won't get it back when we die

Come over
Come over

Cause I gotta know, if I am doing this all on my own

Come over
Come over

How can I show you if you're not here

And I know that we're gonna be fine
And the tattooed mistakes are gonna fade over time
As long as we live, time passes by
And we won't get it back when we die

And I know that we're gonna be fine
And the tattooed mistakes are gonna fade over time
As long as we live, time passes by
And we won't get it back when we die

Come over
Come over

Wooohooohooohaaaaawwww

Come over
Come over

Wooohooohooohaaaaawwww

Come over
Come over

(I gotta know)
(And we wont get it back when we die)

And I know that it's early

    Pretty much like how my life was. Growing without a father. It was a terrible experience but it got better day by day with the supports from people around me and the motivations by a superly awesome mom. :) my life was awful, but now I realized, it is better without him.
    Great song~ I hope those out there who face the same thing, you will stay strong and enjoy every second of your life no matter how it is. :)

    This song is about a relationship gone wrong. In the video, it's father and son, but it could be anyone. The person singing is realizing that all of things they fought about with their dad, all the things coming between them, is really nothing in comparison to the importance of being in each other's lives. The theme recurring throughout this song is that we should fix things with the people we love because we don't know when our last day will be (our their's) and once we're gone we'll never be able to change the wrongs we made in life.
