Eminem when i'm away texts meaning

[Introduction]

It's okay, it's okay. I can still do it

 

[Verse 1]

Sometimes I would like to give up everything, I keep the option open

Why am I doing this trouble to myself? Why do I still write texts?

Sometimes it is hard enough just getting along with normal life

Sometimes I want to jump on stage and really rock this thing

And show these people how much I can do

But that doesn't change the fact that I'm white1, sometimes I just hate life

Something is wrong, I step on the brakes

I have severe stage fright, I can't think of anything, just like that

Da-there-there-there-there is not my fault

With eyes wide open and stones in my stomach

And then everything just happens to me, I run in front of a wall

I just can't do it, all of my manhood

If I go whistling, it was really made into a pussy

So I have to get out of here and be on my own

Dude, forget the shit here, I'm going home

The world weighs on my shoulders as I run back to 8 Mile Road

 

[Refrain]

I'm a man, I'll make a new plan

It's time for me to prove myself and break new ground

It's time I did things myself

When I'm through this, I don't look back anymore2

(8 Mile Road) And when I'm gone I'll know exactly where I'm going

I'm sorry mom, I'm an adult now, I have to go my own way

I don't follow in anyone's footsteps, I leave my own

This is the only way out of 8 Mile Road that I know

 

[Verse 2]

Walk along the train tracks and try to find the drive again

That I once had, otherwise I'll just go back to the same old routine

In the same factory in the same pants

If I want to do it with black horses, I have to do something as soon as possible

Come up with something new, mom has a new partner

Poor little sister, she doesn't understand

Sitting in front of the TV and burying her nose in the coloring book

Paints pictures until she can no longer feel the crayon in her hand

She paints her big brother and mom and dad

Nobody knows what is going through her little head

I wish I could be the father none of us had

But I'm running away from something I've never wanted so badly

Sometimes I get angry because I still haven't had a breakthrough

As if I had grown up and still had no eggs in my sack

I can't rush it, I don't have the courage for that

The pressure is getting too much and I'm just trying to do what's good for me

And I try, sit around and cry by myself

I don't want to lie, not a moment goes by

By not praying to heaven, please, I implore you, oh Lord

Please don't let me drown in a day-to-day job

I hope you can hear me, brother, wherever you are

I swear, Alda, I'll get out of this trailer tomorrow

Tell my mom I love her, kiss my little sister goodbye

And say when you need me, little one, I'm always around

But I have to get out of here, I have no other way out

And I'll come back to you as soon as I have my breakthrough

I swear with everything I have, I can do it on my own

When the work is done, it's back to 8 Mile Road

 

[Refrain]

I'm a man, I'll make a new plan

It's time to prove myself and break new ground

It's time I did things myself

When I get through this, I don't look back anymore

(8 Mile Road) And when I'm gone I'll know exactly where I'm going

I'm sorry mom, I'm an adult now, I have to go my own way

I don't follow in anyone's footsteps, I leave my own

This is the only way out of 8 Mile Road that I know

 

[Verse 3]

You have to experience it to understand it; if you don't do that, you don't know how it is either

And do not understand why this is so important, was and will remain

To cross this line on the outskirts of Detroit

It's special, it has a certain meaning, it's a kind

Award you will never understand

But it means everything to me, that's what my credibility is based on

You've never seen, heard, smelled, or met a real MC

Someone who is sensational, who is on the same podium as me

And yet I still don't have a record deal, it's hard for me

Sit in front of the house with my friends and thrash silly lines

Go to work and finish MC's in the food counter queue3

But when things get serious, where am I with my punch lines?

Who do I have to show my talent to so that I can get further?

Where do I have to go? Who do i need to know

Or am I just another crab in the bucket?

Because this little rabbit's paw doesn't bring me any luck, fuck it

Maybe I have to show my talent elsewhere, I have doubts

Wonder if I'm hanging out with the right people

I look like a homeless man, my clothes don't look good

Look for better clothing with the Salvation Army

And it's cold on this way

Plus, I feel like I'm in combat mode all the time

I'm permanently trimmed for defense, but the one thing I don't want

Is pity, this city is no fun

So without sun, it's so dark

Sometimes I feel like I'm torn apart

From my own limbs, from all of my friends

I would love to blow my skin there

Sometimes I feel like a robot, sometimes I just don't know

What I do, I just wedge, my head is like a steam boiler

I just explode, the kettle gets too hot

Sometimes I talk before I think4

But I've also learned something, it's time to turn things around

One mistake is enough for me to learn from it

If I get to know a girl again, I'll be smarter

I can no longer pretend to be foolish or act immaturely

I have all the prerequisites, I just lack courage

As if I already had the rhythm and the only thing missing is the text

It presses inside me and suddenly it breaks out of me

A new burst of energy flows through me

Time to show these "Free World" bosses5 what the 313 stands for6

Don't be afraid now, I'm free as a bird

After that, I just turn around and cross the street

'Over to the suburbs and you will only see a pattern from the direction of 8 Mile Road

 

[Refrain]

I'm a man, I'll make a new plan

It's time to prove myself and break new ground

It's time I did things myself

When I get through this, I don't look back anymore

(8 Mile Road) And when I'm gone I'll know exactly where I'm going

I'm sorry mom, I'm an adult now, I have to go my own way

I don't follow in anyone's footsteps, I leave my own

This is the only way out of 8 Mile Road that I know
