So Far Away

Album: Nightmare (2010)
  • Never feared for anything, never chained but never free
    I tried to heal the broken love with all I could
    Lived a life so endlessly saw beyond what others see
    I tried to heal the broken love with all I could

    Will you stay
    Will you stay away forever

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

    Plans of what our futures hold
    Foolish lies of growing 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
    Where you can stay you can stay awake forever

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

    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

    How do I live without the ones I love?
    Time still turns the pages of the book its 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
    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 and I need you to know
    So far away and I need you to need you to know Writer/s: ZACHARY BAKER, BRIAN HANER, MATTHEW SANDERS, JONATHAN SEWARD

  • Kimberly Wallace from Ft Myers FloridaThe Rev had an incurable heart condition and was told he might live to be 30....this explains his death on his own terms at his own timing... Just because he decided to do a Bromption cocktail to end his life does not make him a drug addict. Do your research people! Listin to Fiction. Listen to So Far Away.... You will get it! If you really know the history of A7X!
