We were ready for anything

Everyone knows some pain
I see the loss every time some one says your name
When you know someone who shines hard
A soul of the age who doesn't care
Who the fuck you are
You had a friend, a brother who was everything
But he had to go away... that was yesterday
I've lost a lot of people in my time
The good, the bad, the unreal,
And the ones who shine
So I know you all understand
When I say that until they left
We were ready for anything... but this

(Chorus)
You are not gone
We keep you here inside us
You are not gone
We know you're still beside us
You are not gone
We have this light you gave to us

Now it's time to lay to rest our friend
And through these songs
His memory will never fucking end
We will see that
Through this loss we'll she'd some light on you
Until the day you left us

We were ready for anything... but this

You are not gone
We keep you here inside us
You are not gone
We know you're still beside us
You are not gone
We have this light you gave to us

Why'd you have to go? we never had a chance
I can't believe it so I wont admit it
Life ain't shit without you in it

You are not gone
We keep you here inside us
You are not gone-
We know you're still beside us
You are not gone-
We have this light you gave to us

Everybody says the light that shines the brightest
Burns out fast
But what they never say is
All the light they give us lasts
We hold the memories and cherish
Everyday we had
But we would give it up in a second
Just to have you
Back!

    this song means that we've all had a time when we had someone that we loved and cared about so much and they were our everything when they suddenly passed away and left us so heartbroke and suddenly u realize that the memories are the light that lasts, the last item u can cherish, the only thing left that u still have from that person, unique in its own way... amazing song... ^^ rOcK oN mAgGoTs!!!

    if my sources are correct then this song is most likely about coreys little brother who passed away when he was young, Corey himself said that he doesnt want any of us to figure them out completely, so there is a chance that this song was written for the fans and has no personal meaning to the band (but i doubt it)
