Avenged Sevenfold

So Far Away

Verse 1

Never feared for anything
Never shamed but never free
A life to heal the broken heart with all that it could
 
Lived a life so endlessly
Saw beyond what others see
I tried to heal your broken heart with all that I could

Post-
Verse

Will you stay?
Will you stay away forever?

Chorus

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned
Place and time always on my mind
I have so much to say but you're so far away

Verse 2

Plans of what our futures hold
Foolish lies of growin' old
It seems we're so invincible, the truth is so cold
 
A final song, a last request
A perfect chapter laid to rest
Now and then I try to find a place in my mind

Post-
Verse

Where you can stay
You can stay awake forever

Chorus

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned
Place and time always on my mind
I have so much to say but you're so far away

Bridge

Sleep tight, I'm not afraid
The ones that we love are here with me
Lay away a place for me
Cause as soon as I'm done, I'll be on my way
To live eternally

Chorus
(alt.)

How do I live without the ones I love?
Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned
Place and time always on my mind
And the light you left remains but it's so hard to stay
When I have so much to say and you're so far away

Outro

I love you, you were ready
The pain is strong and urges rise
 
But I'll see you when He lets me
Your pain is gone, your hands are tied
 
So far away [so far] »
and I need you to know
So far away [so far] »
and I need you to need you to know
