“The Light You Left Remains”

My friend Barry gave me the latest Avenged Sevenfold album, Nightmare some time ago and since I had no room on my Zune I never listened to it.  I recently decided to just purchase the 120GB Zune (which I was shocked to find in a Wal-mart since they’re doing away with the old Zunes) and I now I have room. 
So now that I have all this space I finally put it on there and listened to it. 

This one song called “So Far Away” stood out in my mind.  The lyrics made me think of Holly who’s thoughts never really left my mind since her passing. 

Here’s the song:

So Far Away – Avenged Sevenfold
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

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 it’s burned.
Place and time always on my mind.
I have so much to say but you’re so far away.

Plans of what our features 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

Where you can say,
You can stay awake forever.

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.

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.

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.

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…


If you followed the link to the post about Holly, you might have noticed that it’s been exactly a year.
I just found it really odd that I hear this song that made me think of her at this exact time.

I just thought I’d share that.
