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

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.

Don't be afraid 
I've taken 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

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

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
