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.

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...

    Actually., he's singing about the Rev.
    " 'Cause as soon as I'm done," meaning when he dies, " I'll be on my way " meaning that he'll go to the other side, and meet up with the Rev and live on on the other side.

    CoryBeast is right.
    Look up their interviews.
    He wrote it shortly after The Rev's death.
    It was Syn's first attempt and success at writing a song all by himself.

    Best lyric, so true: Plans of what our futures hold.
    Foolish lies of growing old. It seems we're so invincible, the truth is so cold...
