About the song
"When I'm Gone" is a song by 3 Doors Down, an American rock band formed in 1996, which raised to fame thanks to their famous "Kryptonite" single.
Released in October 2002 on their second album, "Away from the Sun", it reached as high as number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2003.
Being the lead single for the album recorded at London Bridge Studios that sold over four million copies worldwide, the song stayed until March 2003 on the top of the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
The post-grunge and hard rock styles that this song fuses together made it very popular since it was released, making more fans attend their concerts throughout their tours. This song, even if not strictly a piano song, has produced beautiful sheet music which we make available for you here.
The original music video for the song showed the band members playing in a swamp, getting buried. The video didn’t cut it off though and The Emperor directed a new music video with the band playing live on an aircraft carrier for the US Army.
The idea and message of the video is to encourage all the soldiers that are fighting overseas to protect the nation of the United States.
The lyrics are appropriate for the soldiers that are away from their families, as they feature verses that express the need of love, and safety.
The message of the entire song is a concept of a man away from everyone dear, that sees the darkness, but hopes and waits for the day when he will see the "light that I can’t find", meaning the moment of the sweet return home.
Getting as high as number 2 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks and getting some time even in the Top 40 Mainstream chart, it peaked at number 3 on the Adult Top 40 chart.
Being featured on the video game "Band Hero", the song is quite known around the world and is an anthem for the US men that have to be away from their families.
