This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait?
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know, you know, you know I love you

[Chorus]
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me and you'll never go
Stop breathing if I don't see you anymore

On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand all of hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
I'd give for us
Give anything but I won't give up
'Cause you know, you know, you know I love you


[Chorus]
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me and you'll never go
Stop breathing if I don't see you anymore

So far away, so far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away, so far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know I wanted, I wanted you to stay
'Cause I needed, I need to hear you say that I love you (That I love you)
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you (And I forgive you) for being away for far too long
So keep breathing 'cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and never let me go
Keep breathing 'cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and never let me go

    By god. Just shut it oger it doesn't matter how or what I type in I think youd just get it either way so don't tell me what I have to do got it. Oh and dissing Nickleback is saying that one of the ones that sponsered as best rock sucks which doesn't for all the others so stfu already. Oh one last thing you have no good tastes of music nickleback is one of the best classics since Beetles, acdc, even Metalica.

    I've known a girl for a few years, and I started really chasing her about the beginning of May. She made it official when I helped her move on the second, and we enjoy just being together alone, but now her mom won't let me see her again and she's become really attached to me and I love her more than life. It's been two days since I last saw her, 31 hours since her last text, and it really hurts. I just wish I could've fixed our mistake so we wouldn't have to be apart. I'm never letting go, and I'm hoping she'll wait it out. She's never told me she loves me, but I like to think that she does because of ow she acts.

    This song has been a lifesaver for me and my fella whilst he is away out of the country. We both the album on our ipods and have both been listening to this song and are now counting down the days until we are back together. He is my soulmate and my one true love and this song connects us even though we are so far away for far too long. And I will always hold on to him and never let him go.

    When I hear this song, it makes me sad and think about my dad that I just started talking to after 26 years. And I am so hopeful that we will soon be able to see each other and for him to meet his 4 grandchildren for the first time, its never too late to have a dad and a grandfather. When that has always been what I wanted since I was a small girl:]this song has many different meanings, to me it means just what it says Far away, for far to long.

    Ok for one umicat stop the stupid poasting your ruining a real god song here like someone said before here this is or maby Was the only song to actualy sing bout loving someone not like thoes preppy or screwed up rap versions no offens but the rapper versions are little to dirty and to far at points this is the only and one and only pure song Nickle back granted their best title at (of coarse the band is good as well).
