Avenged Sevenfold – So Far Away lyrics

[Verse 1]
Never feared for anything,
Never shamed but never free,
A light that healed a broken heart
With all that it could.
Lived a life so endlessly,
Saw beyond what others see,
I tried to heal your broken heart
With all that I could.

Will you stay?
Will you stay away forever?

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned.
Place and time always on my mind,
I have so much to say but you're so far away.

[Verse 2]
Plans of what our futures hold,
Foolish lies of growin' old,
It seems we're so invincible,
The truth is so cold.
A final song, a last request,
A perfect chapter laid to rest,
Now and then I try to find
A place in my mind

Where you can say,
You can stay awake forever.

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned.
Place and time always on my mind,
I have so much to say but you're so far away.

Sleep tight, I'm not afraid.
The ones that we love are here with me
Lay away a place for me,
'Cause as soon as I'm done, I'll be on my way,
To live on eternally.

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned.
Place and time always on my mind,
And the light you left remains but it's so hard to stay,
When I had so much to say and you're so far away.

I love you, you were ready,
The pain is strong and urges rise.
But I'll see you when it lets me,
Your pain is gone, your hands untied

So far away.
I need you to know

So far away
And I need you to,
Need you to know...

    This song sums up exactly what I was feeling and really touched my heart because my son Liam who was a massive avenge fan died suddenly in 2009 aged 14, this song among others such as acid rain have really helped me through the last few years, well done guys absolutely brilliant lyrics from someone who knows how it feels, thanks for making a difference to my life melanie from london.

    This song was Released by avenged Sevenfold for their drummer 'The Rev' (Jimmy Sullivan) who died from an OD on a drug. the song was made with so much emotion from the band, this was for two reasons. To emphasis how much they are going to miss him and how much they love him, also, to release all the emotions that were building up inside them. loosing someone you love is one of the toughest challenges in live and I believe they overcame this with this song. So Far Away can also be useful to people who have lost a loved one and are grieving as they can strongly connect to these lyrics. I know from experience that what I claim in this meaning is true as I have been through dark time much like loosing a closed loved one.

    Everytime I listen to this song I want to cry. I believe that no matter how long, be it one week, one month, one year or even ten years, it is hard to forget someone who has been there. I just hope that please don't get too sad ovrr his death. I believe he will be free now. Cherish those around you. You never know when will they be gone.

    It was wrote for the rev but it can be used for anyone that you lost and you cared for. Seriously though, I mean I miss the rev as well but I don't have the close attachment that say syn or shadows have. I can't. Outside of listening to them live, I don't go back stage and hang out with them, go to the movies together, eat lunch, etc. You can say what you want but music is intended to be interpreted by the listener so create your own meanings and don't listen to what others say.

    "so far away" by avenged sevenfold is a tribute to the band's late drummer, jimmy "the rev" sullivan. He was a long time friend to all of the members of the band, and had known them all since childhood. When he passed, the band was devastated, and though the entire album "nightmare" was dedicated to the rev, this song was meant to express the band's feelings of emptiness and sorrow when he passed. It's one of the most (if not the most) emotional song avenged sevenfold has ever written.
