Song Description

'When I Die' is the most obvious country track on 'Chemical Reaction'. Raven's brushed drums and the acoustic guitar scurrying it along as Wimmer ponders the afterlife ("can I meet my brother, will I miss my cats/will I even think of other souls like that"), bringing it back to the running theme of love as she sings how "it's not the dying part that scares me it's the unknown without you", but, in the meanwhile, "life is for the living/and lucky we can do it well". - Mike Davies, folking.com, UK

Story Behind the Song

'where am i gonna go to when i die?'

Lyrics

'When I Die' -- words and music by Beth Wimmer, 2020

where am i gonna go to when i die?
will i even know i'm not alive
can i meet my brother, will i miss my cats
will i even think of other souls like that

the beauty of this life lies in impermanence
but i love the things i love wishin we'd forever stay
most times i don't think about my death but when i do
it's not the dying part that scares me it's the unknown without you

so where am i gonna go to when i die
will i even know i'm not alive
can i take you with me far away and free
heaven bound where we can be the perfect you and me

some folks who i love died before my very eyes
left a body lying lifeless and i saw the spirit rise
i followed that light right up to these shiny gates
but when i tried to join the party something there said i should wait

but i hope i can go there when i die...

hey i know life is for the living
and lucky we can do it well
half the world's a living hell
we're alive, our days have meaning
but if you're leaving soon i'm going with you

where am i gonna go to when i die
where am i gonna go to when i die
where am i gonna go to when i dieĀ
