Funny how in just one moment,
Things can turn upside down.
Wish I could turn back time to
When you were still around.

And all I've got left is memories,
Of your face smiling at me.
You used to say that we should all just
Handle this differently.

Took us all by surprise,
No, we never saw this coming.
Always were, always will be a hero
.
With no warning sign,
One day they came and
They took you away.

Remember everything that you said,
That we could never fully trust them
.
Wish I could say I disagree,
But I know they're the ones to blame.

This true to every group
We once said.
Nothing we can do now that you
Got no way to bring you back.

Took us all by surprise,
No, we never saw this coming.
Always were, always will be a hero.
With no warning sign,
One day they came and
They took you away.

Things can be so unfair,
You were taken away,
Before your time.
Now we're all sitting here,
Nothing left for us to say,
Don't want to leave you behind.

Took us all by surprise,
No, we never saw this coming.
Always were, always will be a hero.
With no waning sign,
One day they came and
They took you away.

Took us all by surprise,
No, we never saw this coming.
Always were, always will be a hero.
With no warning sign,
One day they came and
They took you away.

    This song appears to have a deep meaning to me. If you aren't paying attention, it sounds like a regular break-up song. But it is not just another break-up song. I don't even think it is a break-up song.
    I think this song is about losing someone. Now, in some areas it feels like the person is dead, and that it happened suddenly.
    What I the song expresses to me is that there was a person who was very much loved in a community. That person was kidnapped/corrupted/killed thus "taken away". ('You were taken away before your time'). That person is now being missed deeply. (Gee, I took a whole lot of time to say a small thing, huh?)
