Lyrics

When I’m Gone                                                           
 
When I’m gone
All the things that you wanted to be
Better get it on with me
Baby let it run like on the waterfront
Gotta show me now
Don’t think you’re gonna know how
 
I broke my bread and I fed it to you
Better you than me but at least I kept the wine
As it infected you I floated on out
Divine righteousness
 
When I come gonna be all you wanted to be
Never let it run with me
When you gonna learn
Back off a’ this world
Should I show you now
Do you remember how it all began?
 
I broke my bread and I fed it to you
Better you than me but at least I kept the wine
As it infected you I floated on out
Divine righteousness
 
What you got up there you don’t get down here
Thinking I don’t see salvation                       
Tell me what you see friend
As you judge my sorry soul...
 
Man, I’m gone
All the things that you wanted to be
Are far gone
They’re with me
Brother let it run like on the waterfront
Go on and show yourself
Or are you still just a victim now?
 
I broke my bread and I fed it to you
Better you than me but at least I kept the wine
As it infected you I floated on out
Divine righteousness
