Protoje - After I'm Gone

Don't wait until I'm gone away

After I'm gone (when I'm gone)
Will be too late to show you care
You've got to love me while I'm here
And still with you (with you)
'Cause after I'm gone (when I'm gone)
All of the tears will be in vain (in vain)
Only the memories will remain
(What remain for me?)

Can't rest in peace if you live in war
Don't make the conflict reach too far
Here one day and you gone tomorrow
Next week funeral wreaths and flowers
Forget the hours of the time spent up
Keeping the malice and it don't make sense now
So you intend fi treat me when it dread
Nuh come the dead yard fi nyam no fish and bread

After I'm gone (when I'm gone away)
Will be too late to show you care
You've got to love me while I'm here
And still with you (with you)
'Cause after I'm gone (when I'm gone)
All of the tears will be in vain
Only the memories will remain
(Do you feel the same?)

And me say peace, that's the way I'm trodding
Step 'pon you shoes then I beggin'you pardon
You nuh waa hear that so you hold hard end
Man a road living like prisoner and warden
So a who at fault then and who get hurt
When you use you brother fi fabricate you worth
Well everybody was naked at birth
Whether buried or burnt, we return to the earth

After I'm gone (when I'm gone)
Will be too late to show you care
You've got to love me while I'm here
And still with you (with you)
'Cause after I'm gone
All of the tears will be in vain
Only the memories will remain
(Do you feel the same?)

The line between your friend and your enemy
Easy fi blur when you overpree
It all depends on the energy
You choose to invest in the chemistry
Which you require to make it
If your desire is to take it to a height
'Cause I life is sacred
I purpose is to intensify the light that will shine

After I'm gone (when I'm gone)
Will be too late to show you care
You've got to love me while I'm here
And still with you (with you)
'Cause after I'm gone (when I'm gone)
All of the tears will be in vain
Only the memories will remain
(Do you feel the same?)

After I'm gone (when I'm gone away)
Will be too late to show you care
You've got to love me while I'm here
And still with you (with you)
'Cause after I'm gone (when I'm gone)
All of the tears will be in vain
Only the memories will remain
(Do you feel the same?)
