Numb and broken,
Here I stand alone,
Wondering what were
The last words I said to you
Hoping, praying that I'll find a way
To turn back time,
Can I turn back time?

What would I give to behold.
The smile the face of love,
You never left me,
The rising sun
Will always speak your name.

Numb and broken,
Here I stand alone,
Wondering what were
The last words I said to you
It won't be long
We'll meet again...

Rock
What would I give (What would I give), to behold
The smile, the face of love?
You never left me (You Never Left Me)
The rising sun
Will always speak your name

It won't be long, we'll meet again
Your memory is never passing
It won't be long, we'll meet again
My love for you is everlasting.

I mourn for those who never knew you
I mourn (I mourn) for those (for those) who never knew you (who never knew you)

It won't be long, we'll meet again
Your memory is never passing
It won't be long, we'll meet again
My love for you is everlasting.

It won't be long, we'll meet again...
It won't be long, we'll meet again...
It won't be long, we'll meet again...
It won't be long, we'll meet again...

    The song is truly deep.
    He's talking about someone he loved has passed on, that is the general meaning.
    but the lyrics actuly have deeper meaning then that. the "person" who he is refurring to has passed and now he is thinking back on the memories of what he has said and done to this person, did he say something hateful, did he make them laugh and did he show how much he loved them. as he remembers it all he soon relizes that even though there gone in this life he will soon have a chance to relive his life to them in one soon shortly after the life he is in now making his mistakes clear and terminated but as well loving them just like what he did before in this life.
    "It wont be long we'll meet again your memorie is never pasing"

    Just love this song and all it stands for. It's about the lead singer at the time, Howard Jones I believe, having lost his mother to illness, stating that the memory of his loved one will never be forgotten. A truly beautiful song, and in my view, one of the best songs that Killswitch Engage have ever managed to produce. They are truly song writing geniuses, and even though the song is about the death of somebody, it brings forth a sense of hope for better things to come. The fact that he says 'your memory is never passing' shows how much he loves his mother. Yet again, a truly beautiful song! Bravo, Killswitch Engage! Also, as a side note, maybe the title came from the fact that his mother liked roses and her name was sharyn? Just my personal thoughts.

    He lost his girlfriend and he's upset but at the same time he knows he'll see her when he dies and goes to heaven

    I think its pointless to try to describe what the singer's meaning is of the song, try to find your own meaning, i don't sit there thinking oh my god, he's like sad cuz his loved one died. Wtf... What does the song mean to you? Thats what i think people should be typing, how does this song make you feel? If you're sitting there telling the meaning of the song itself, then i guess it has no meaning to you personally, so why would you listen to something you can't relate with? Anyway, everyone has their views about things, this is mine about "meanings of songs".

    Passion is the world that would perfectly discribe this, actually, the meaning could be both distance and death, i guess... Love will never face
