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
.

[Pre-Chorus]
Will you stay?
Will you stay away forever
?

[Chorus]
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


[Pre-Chorus]
Where you can say,
You can stay awake forever
.

[Chorus]
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.

[Hook]
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
.

[Bridge]
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.

[Outro]
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.

    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.

    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.

    Every time I listen to this song I think of te people I've lost in my life. Not only is this a phenomenal song in its own right, and is something to have playing in the background and mindlessly sing along to the lyrics, but when you really listen to it, it tells a story of a soul so many knew and loved for numerous different reasons. And as much as we all miss jimmy, we know he's somewhere looking upon us, laughing at us crying at the lyrics that inspire us all so much and cunjure up so many lost and forgotton emotions. Even synster's solos send shivers down my spine as you remember all the stupid photos you've seen of jimmy taking the piss and just being the easy-going fun-loving guy he was. As aware as I am that none of avenged will ever read this, I want to thank them for the amount of time they have filled with their amazing music and the emotions they bring back. They are truly inspirational and I know I wouldn't be here without their music.
