[Verse 1]
I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen,
'Cause no one else cared

After my dreaming I woke with this fear
What am I leaving when I'm done here?
So if you're asking me, I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

[Verse 2]
Don't be afraid of taking my beating,
I've shared what I made
I'm strong on the surface,
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect, but neither have you
So if you're asking me I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

[Bridge]
Forgetting all the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are

[Chorus]
When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
Don't resent me, and when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting all the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are
I can't be who you are

    I luv this song, when i first heard it i cried because when i moved i thought of my Best Friend who hated me when i left. I wish he would have left out all the rest when i left besides the good things i did.
