Linkin Park Leave Out All The Rest Lyrics

Last updated: 03/11/2013 03:50:03 PM


I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
Cause no one else cared

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I'm done here

So if you're asking me
I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

And don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
[End Chorus]

Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating
I've shed but I made

I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you

So if you're asking me
I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
[End Chorus]

Forgetting
All the hurt inside
You've learned to hide so well

Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting
All the hurt inside
You've learned to hide so well

Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are
I can't be who you are

Opinions are just that, opinions. Bare in mind that while you may believe that someone is wrong for liking/disliking something it is their choice and they have every right to feel that way about it. Also, you don't like some people posting don't agree with you that is YOUR problem not theirs, don't tell them not to post if they feel differently from you. Play nice.

To keep this relevant to the song, this song is actually what got me back into Linkin Park after several years. Great song, not AMAZING but definitely one of their best. Kinarth, AWAYYYYYYYyyyyyyyyy....

The reviews above suck!!!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Mercedes | 5/6/11

This song rules and so does Twilight and if you have a problem with either of them, then that's your problem and you can just go fuck yourself rather than tell us to go fuck our ourselves. And when I say this, I specificly mean Shannon who is obviously very over confident and idiotic. So j want you all to know that it's better to keep your opinions to yourself .!.!. And if you have a problem with it, you can judt go fuck yourselfs with it! You bitches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lets get it strait | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/28/10

for those who are comfused about the meaning behind this song, here you go.
In a Kerrang! review/interview of the band, and the album, vocalist Chester Bennington had this to say about the song, "We knew this was going to be a single from the very beginning, so we worked really hard on making sure it had great lyrics. I'm singing 'Pretending someone else can come and save me from myself' during it because it's supposed to feel like an apology letter, as though I'm moving on but I want people to remember the good things and not the bad things. A lot of the song is about humility."

thats what LP says the song means, however what each listener takes from it will be different.

this is what Joe Hahn said about the video being influenced by the british film "sunshine."

“We're explorers in space, just like when we go on tour. We're leaving our home life behind, and I guess it kind of ties into 'Leave Out All the Rest', in that we have to leave things behind in order to do something better.”

and for those of you who dont like linkin park, i have a question.
why are you on the lyrics page of a band you dont like?

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation | Reviewer: Kristen Saine | 7/30/10

the first time i heard this song it was on a newer episode of CSI and i immediately fell in love with it. To me it means that the person telling the 'story' is alone in crowd and afraid of being miss when he dies and that everyone is judging him and asking people that when he dies to forgive everything he's done and remember all the good and leave out all the rest or all the bad things.

120C|< 0/\/ L1/\/|<1/\/ []D@12|<, <3! | Reviewer: ShadowOfPain | 6/3/10

Just like a lot of their songs, I feel extremely sad while listening to it, because it does talk to me in a way, like a lot of songs and bands.

A lot of my life I've done somethings that have hurt my family emotionally, and it's not like I wanted to do them on purpose.

"<[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed
Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest>"

I really do want them to forget those things I've done when I leave to be alone or die.

"<Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating
I've shared what I've made
I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you>"

I don't want them to fear for my future, I've been punish as it is for what I've done.
I try and act like nothing bothers me but truthfully a lot of things do.
It's true, I'm not perfect, never will be, but they weren't/aren't exactly ether.

"<Forgetting
All the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are>"

They hide how they feel from everyone pretty well, and it hurts me to see them do so, and i can tell they are.

They never give up trying to help me be ready for my future, finding everyone they possible can, but when they do, it just hurts me more, and makes everything worse.

I really can't be the way they want me to be.

My Thoughts | Reviewer: Orphan | 12/5/09

When I first heard the song (from the Twilight ST) I figured it was about a selfish man who didn't want his gf to move on. Then I figured it was a man who didn't want the negitive stuff remembered, just positive.
Then earlier this month my dad passed away. And this song took on a whole new meaning. I was never really close too my father. My mom died when I was a toddler and in a way the best of him died with her. He married this horrible woman and if I tried to tell him all of the things she did, I was punished for lying.
After he got sick, and seen how she was, he did apoligize for taking her side all the time, but we never were close. After he passed away and I heard the song it just seemed to fit into everything that was happening. And in a way it helped the healing process. For the first time I realized that it was time to try and forget the wrongs my dad did in my life and remember the good things.

great song | Reviewer: shhh | 12/5/09

well actually this song is so great just love it. I think its stupid that some people feel the need to diss twilight tho this song goes great with the movie so stop actig like kids think of how much profit they would have made after that film from all they fans.

lp 4ever! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/10/09

for all the people who think that this song was written for the movie sunshine are wrong, look the sunshine soundtrack and youll see, yes ive seen the video (and is really cool) and yes it seem like sunshine, but no the video was directed by joe hann and i had nothing to do with sunshine or twilight ok! :D

STFU | Reviewer: Shannon | 7/22/09

OKay, twitards, just go fuck urself okay?! Twilight sucks, and its not even about love, its about an 117 year old virgin who decides he finally wants to go fuck a girl, who happenes to be a depressed Mary-Sue.

The big sparkly lion fell in love with the whimpy little Mary-Sue lamb, and the sparkly lion ate well that night, then died of inner bleeding caused by the Buttfuckugly lamb.

Leave Out All The Rest is about love, AND Twilight haPPENES TO HAVE NO LOVE. yA HEAR THAT STUPIDS!? LOVE! NOT HUNGER!

Ugh... | Reviewer: jd | 7/7/09

To John: Yeah I'm pretty sure that Linkin Park, with most of their original fanbase in their twenties, would write songs about teen-angst. I don't see nothing whiny behind this because if you think real hard throughout the history of music, even the great ones have whiny sounding songs.

To Twilight Fans: Fuck! This song wasn't even made for Twilight!

Review: I surprisingly like this song immeadiately when I bought M2M. I wasn't that much in awe because their softest song, "My December," was made in the Hybrid Theory days so I knew they could do something like this if they wanted to and succeed and they did. =D

awesome. one of the best lp songs. | Reviewer: Jake | 6/30/09

John this song is about a guy who is afraid he hasnt left enough of a mark on the world and knows he might die soon. he is telling the girl that he loves that he wants her to remember him for all the good things he has done in his life. and, by the way, what the hell twilight fans? yeah it goes with edward and bella but what the fuck?? is that all you think about?? yeah im a fan too but im not that bad. this song was actually written for the movie "Sunshine." look up "Leave Out All The Rest (SUNSHINE)" on youtube. that is the original video for this song. its a great video. even better song though

Helpful | Reviewer: 30MinutesToGeek | 6/5/09

I'm sick of twilight talk about THIS song. Yeah,t could possibly suit to those damned characters.But are we forgetting the meaning?? THIS song is so full of emotion and I,Like most commentors, Can relate to most,If not ALL the Lyrics. So,let's just stick to the song and NOT matching it up to fictional characters please. I don't want this to get caught up in the Twilight Craze.

I'm lstening to it ,On repet,Whilst crying and Hugging My Oogie Boogie bear.The song helps...
I've had a rough day....

Leave Out All The Rest/ reviewer: Gavin morales/6/2/09 | Reviewer: gavin morales | 6/2/09

i to feel the true meaning of this song for i too lost my ex in a shooting about a week ago .a i was crying for her to come back so i wrote poetry to calm myself down and then i heard this song and i started thinking about the meaning and it reminds me of myself before.

amazing! | Reviewer: War.S | 5/12/09

This is a truly amazing song.....and btw john, this song is about a guy who knows he is about to die but realizes too late that there will be no one around to miss him after he is dead.
True, he is totally screwed up, he has no friends to miss him etc etc. But that can be said for any of us,we dont really know who will miss us and who will not.
i'll Definitely not miss you.....whoever you are.....when you are gone.

Got That?

Stop ridiculing LP if you are thick enough to not understand their songs......

Adios Bastard.
