[Guitar Solo Open]

I took their smiles and I made them mine.
I sold my soul just to hide the light.
And now I see what I really am,
A thief a whore, and a liar.
I run to you,
(And run away from this hell)
Call out your name,
(Giving up, giving in)
I see you there,
(Still you are)
Farther away.

Im numb to you - numb and deaf and blind.
You give me all but the reason why.
I reach but I feel only air at night.
Not you, not love, just nothing.
I run to you,
(And run away from this hell)
Call out your name,
(Giving up, giving in)
I see you there,
(Still you are)
Farther away.

Try to forget you,
But without you I feel nothing.
Don't leave me here, by myself.
I can't breathe.
I run to you,
(And run away from this hell)
Call out your name,
(Giving up, giving in)
I see you there,
(Still you are)
Farther away.

I run to you,
(And run away from this hell)
Call out your name,
(Giving up, giving in)
I see you there,
(Still you are)
Farther away.
Farther away,
Farther away,
Farther away,
Farther away,
Farther away.

    I see two meanings to this song. 1. It's either amy is seeing herself as devil. That took people's happines and made dem his. Or she is in-directly telling us dat she sold her soul to the devil. But now is calling to God almighty to help her.

    I'm adding on to my first entry. That one thing growing farther away, without it there, brings out the worst in her. She can barley live without it.

    First of all, the words in the 3rd verse are wrong. Its "Don't leave me here. By myself. I can't breathe." And the meaning is the one thing that holds her happiness and everything good about her is growing farther away.
