Nickelback – Far Away lyrics
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.

    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.

    This song reminds me of the love of my life. We have been through so much hell and he's withstood it all for me. He was in a relationship with someone else when we met and we fell in love and so he says he has loved me along. And even though we're so far away from each other now, we still love each other:] I cry everytime I hear this song.

    Listening to this song reminds me of this girl I love sooo much. We were together for a little while, but we split. There were a couple times when we almost got together, but we both had some doubts. And then last month, she got another boyfriend. Since we are still great friends, I hear a lot about their relationship. And now I realize how much I love her; I can't get her out of my mind, but shes taken =[

    I know there's a high chance that when Nickelback wrote this they meant 'far away' to be literal, but I always took it to mean that they were metaphorically far away. Like they were actually near by but they were out of reach.
    I was listening to this song once and subconsciously started to sing along at 'i love you, I loved you all along' and it was that made me realise that I wasn't confused about my ex I knew exactly how I felt. It all went wrong again but I'm not letting him ruin any songs for me. This is still a beautiful song.
    I think 'I'm give it all, I'd give for us, give anything but I won't give up' are really powerful, beautiful emotive lyrics: D

    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.

    I loved you all along And I miss you' megan will you take me back? "i did and after that everytime I hear it I think of us and I think on how lucky I am to have someone like him.

    I've been hearing this song for long and I liked it. Who wouldnt like a nickelback song? :) but I never really paid attention to the lyrics. Then last week, my boyfriend played it on the guitar then I searched the lyrics. I then came to realize that this song is for his ex (?) girlfriend who is now living outside the country. The song is really great. But too bad it's not for me. Like hurting29, I felt something different too --- I am oh so hurting.

    I agree with Nicklefan. This is one of the few songs out there that is actually about being in love instead of just wanting. Stuff. All the rappers and people like that are writing 'songs' about wanting to "make love in the club" and it's kinda sickening.
    But chad and the guys aren't like that (sometimes). This and Gotta Be Somebody show that they can be one of the best bands out there.

    This was the first time I heard this song because one my friend requested me to sing this for him. But, I found out what's really the reason behind it. It's the situation between me and my boyfriend. We're far away from each other. But it's not an excuse for us to stop our relationship or should I say to leave each other. Although, I broke me promise that I won't leave him. By now, we're together again. He'd already forgave me. And we're going through 1 year next month. :] I'm memorizing this song. So I can sing it to him. And of course, to my friend who really requested it. :]

Although the distance we've been apart. he never failed to express his love towards me and i don't want to waste the love he gave for me. As the lyrics said. I love you. I have love you all along. and I miss you been far away for far too long.

    Was hoping this was going to happen. Not getting a second chance. Not going to be able to keep a great friendship I missed for sooo many yrs. I will never hear the three words I am so scared to say. I'm just fortunate for the actual friends I have to keep me thinking positive right now. I know someone will love me in the long run. Just waiting a long time before I let it happen.

    This song, is gorgious, it reminds me of people who make mistakes, too late to take it back. Just one chance, to make it right again. To ask for the last dance, because you are the only thing they cared about that they loved you and miss you. They have been far away for far too long, and you want them to stay because they needed to hear you say that you love them, they loved you all along.

    This song is trying to say that even if the person you love is a long way from home to never give up on them and always believe that someday they will come home and when they do it will make you love them even more because they have came back for you and that is the sign of true love when someone is gone for a long time and comes back just for the person they love if I could I would stop time itself just to see her smile for even a second.

    This song is about a man's love for his woman. Even though the going is difficult and he has problems of his own that he is willing to risk it all just to be with her and vice versa. He forgives her for her flaws and he is willing to forgive her for being away from his life because he has needed someone like her for a long time. He just had to wait. So in spite of all the mistakes of being misused and misplace that they both went through-they belong together without a doubt.

    I love this song because my husband whom is not a very romantic guy told me to listen to this because he wanted me to hear it when we were just friends leaning toward dating 5 years ago. I listened and it fit perfect. He had tried to get me to go out with him numerous times and I kept turning him down. And we'd go awhile without speaking not cus were mad just life and run into each other again, then we roomated then I left to my own aprt and he kept wanting to be with me. I finally gave him a chance outside of being friends and I fell for him hard and this time I told him I loved him and I would never let him go. He would tell me when he went out on the road driving a truck he hated having to leave and wanted us to be "together" more than just friends. Of course I was the one making him wait and realizing it later and it hurt him everytime I would turn him down and he felt bad everytime he had to go on the road after we got together.

    Wow this song is beatuful. The guy is a firefighter, and his wife doesn't want to go. He says he loves her and he'll come back. But that doesn't happen. As a atempte to save a guy his plane leaves. Shortally after that a tree falls. The wife is devistated she thinks her husband is dead. But when her husband shows up at her house she is so overjoied. She gives him a hug and a kiss, she really loves him.

    This song brought me to tears. There is a boy who i'v always like and we almost dated, but I had to move 500 miles away. We decided not to, but we staid in touch. After a while we lost touch but I always still thought of him. The next year I cam back for church camp with my church from where I use to live, and he was there, with his new girlfriend. All of my emotions came rushing back for him however and one night I pulled him aside and told him. I just couldn't keep it in anymore. We decided we still shouldn't date being so far away, but he told me he loved me and always has.

    This song is one of my favorites because it reminds me of my boyfriend who is so far away from me. We have this so-called long distance relationship and it kills me for not being with him as often as we wanted to. I miss him so much. He is so far away. Far away from me. But distance between two hearts is not an obstacle. Rather, it is a great reminder of just how strong true love can be.

    The man I love more than I ever loved anyone after 3. 5 years could never tell me he loved me. I wanted to share my life with him forever, but he told me over and over to move on and he could never give me what I want. We had/have a connection that is rare and it is more than love, it is in my soul. So after 3. 5 years I left, and that reality I hope made him see we are meant to be together. And we are trying to get back to us. Love you rob.

    This song makes me cry everytime I hear it. It reminds me of my ex boyfriend that I am still in love with and he had another girlfriend. And everytime I hear it I picuture him singing it to me and its just hard. But its a great song and I love it. Its talking about how people ethier broke up or gotten in fights but in the end they realize that they need each other and they love eachoter and in the end they are together and everything is okay now.

    Not every line has to be relevant to your situation My partner and I haven't been together for a couple of months and its hard to get together because of family situations. Part of this song she is asking me to forgive her because of her situation but there is nothing to forgive. We both knew what we were up for and in for. No way is it a break up song. Its an affirmation of how strong real love is. The video clip doesn't always transcend the meaning. The line @ I wanted you to stay cause I needed to hear you say doesn't mean she is waiting for me to tell her I love her, she knows that. All this song says to me from my g/f is that she wants to be with me more she will be with me more but just now its a little be hard. It wil lall be great in the enmd and now its our song are than anything in this worldnd I love her mo.
