Avenged Sevenfold — So Far Away lyrics

[Verse 1]
Never feared for anything,
Never shamed but never free,
A light that healed a 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.

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
Where you can say,
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.

[Hook]
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 on eternally.

[Bridge]
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 had 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 it lets me,
Your pain is gone, your hands untied.

So far away.
I need you to know

So far away
And I need you to,
Need you to know...
