Avenged Sevenfold – So Far Away

Posted on

Em

Never feared for anything

Em

Never shamed but never free

G                D

A life to heal the broken heart

Bm          C

With all that it could

 

Em

Lived the life so endlessly

EM

Saw beyond what others see

G                  D

I tried to heal your broken heart

Bm         C

With all that I could

 

 

[Bridge]

 

C

Will you stay

D

Will you stay away forever?

 

 

[Chorus]

 

Em                        G

How do I live without the ones I love?

Am                                Em         D

Time still turns the pages of the book, it’s burned

Em                     G

Place and time, always on my mind

Am                                C    D

I have so much to say but you’re so far away

 

 

[Verse 2]

 

Em

Plans of what our futures hold

Em

Foolish lies of grown and old

G              D

It seems we’re so invincible

Bm          C

The truth is so cold

 

Em

A final song, a last request

Em

A perfect chapter laid to rest

G              D

Now and then I try to find

Bm          C

The place in my mind

 

 

[Bridge]

 

C

Where you can stay

D

You can stay awake forever

 

 

[Chorus]

 

Em                        G

How do I live without the ones I love?

Am                                Em         D

Time still turns the pages of the book, it’s burned

Em                    G

Place and time always on my mind

Am                                C     D

I have so much to say but you’re so far away

 

 

[Verse 3]

 

E

Sleep tight

C

I’m not afraid

Am                    Em

The ones that we love are here with me

E

Lay away

C

A place for me

D

‘Cause as soon as I’m done

C

I’ll be on my way

D

To live eternally

 

[solo]

 

E  C  Am  Em

E  C  D  C  D

 

 

[Chorus]

 

Em                        G

How do I live without the ones I love?

Am                                Em         D

Time still turns the pages of the book, it’s burned

Em                    G

Place and time always on my mind

Am

And the light you left remains

C         D

But it so hard to stay

Am                                C     D    Em

And I have so much to say and you’re so far away

[Outro]

 

Em

I love you

D

You were ready

Am         G       D/F#   Em   D   C

The pain is strong and urges rise

Em

But I see you

D

And he lets me

Am           G       D/F#     Em    D    C

Your pain is gone on hands untied

 

Em D     C   Em         D             C

So far away      (And I need you to know)

Em D     C   Em         D                    C

So far away      (And I need you to need you to know)
