Pearl Jam – Light Years lyrics

I've used hammers made out of wood
I have played games with pieces and rules
I undeciphered tricks at the bar
But now you're gone, I haven't figured out why
I've come up with riddles and jokes about war
I've figured out numbers and what they're for
I've understood feelings and I've understood words
But how could you be taken away?
And wherever you've gone
And wherever we might go
It don't seem fair... Today just disappeared
Your light's reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars
With heavy breath, awakened regrets
Back pages and days alone that could have been spent, together...
But we were miles apart
Every inch between us becomes light years now
No time to be void or save up on life
You got to spend it all...
And wherever you've gone
And wherever we might go
It don't seem fair... You seem to like it here
Your light's reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars
And wherever you've gone
And wherever we might go
It don't seem fair... Today just disappeared
Your light's reflected now, reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

    This song is about friends that are f*in up and there's nothing you can do about it and you're just watchin them go down, down, down. Then there are other times that you have friends that don't f*k up at all and they're great people and for some reason you just lose them and then they're just off the planet and you never got the chance to say goodbye. So if you have friends and family love them while they're still here.
