Yo, it's my life, my own words I guess
Have you ever loved someone so much
Not the expression, no
When they know they're your heart
And you will destroy anyone who would try to harm her
Turns right around and bites you
What happens when you become the main source of her pain
"Dad's gotta go catch a plane"
I can't find mommy, where is she?"
Daddy's writing a song, this song ain't gon write itself"
Then turn right around in that song and tell her you love her
That's Slim Shady, yeah baby Slim Shady's crazy
But tonight, Shady's rock-a-bye baby
And when I'm gone just carry on don't mourn,
I'm lookin' down on you smilin'

Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice, just know that,
And I didn't feel a thing so baby, don't feel no pain, just smile back
I keep havin' this dream,
"You're makin' mommy cry, why, why is mommy cryin'"
You always say that, you always say this is the last time
She's pilin' boxes in front of the door tryin' to block it
Goes in her pocket, pulls out a tiny necklace locket
I look up, it's just me standin' in the mirror
They're sayin', "you got one more chance to do right
And just as I go to walk out of my bedroom door

Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice, just know that,
And I didn't feel a thing so baby, don't feel no pain, just smile back
And when I'm gone just carry on don't mourn,
I'm lookin' down on you smilin'

The curtain closes, they're throwin' roses at my feet
They're screamin' so loud, I take one last look at the crowd
"Daddy, its me, help mommy, her wrists are bleedin'"
How did you get to Sweden?
You told me that you weren't leavin'
And I bought you this coin, it says number one dad
"I get the point, fine, me and mommy are goin'"
Now go out there and show em that you love em more than us
They want you, Marshall
It's no wonder you can't go to sleep
You rap about it, yeah word, kid keep it real"
How could it be, that the curtain is closin' on me
**** it, put it to my brain, scream Die Shady! And pop it
The plane that I was supposed to be on, crashes, and burns to ashes
Alarm clock's ringing, there's birds singin'
I walk right up to Kim and kiss her tell her I miss her

Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice, just know that,
And I didn't feel a thing so baby, don't feel no pain, just smile back
And when I'm gone just carry on don't mourn,
I'm lookin' down on you smilin'
