Day 62: “So Far Away” – Avenged Sevenfold

!!!ITALIANO!!!

A touching song, a very personal goodbye, the moving tribute track dedicated to the dead drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan by his band Avenged Sevenfold.

A7X were born in California in 1999, at the beginning as metalcore band, to become later more classic heavy metal. At first the team was made from the singer Matthew Shadows, the drummer Jimmy, and the guitarist Zacky Vengeance. They had right from the beginning a great success, even if with the album City of Evil  they could show their ability and Mr Shadows’ extraordinary talent, thanks to new original sound, more melodic, definetely distant from the screamed hardcore of their first tracks.

Today’s song is taken from their last album Nightmare, entirely dedicated to the drummer who died at only 28 years old, due to a mix of drug and alcohol. Released in July 27th (2010), it had immediately a great worldwide success, awarding first place in many rock charts.

The moving song suggested today, So Far Away, was written by the guitarist Synyster Gates, and the video goes back to childhood’s episodes of band’s components.

So Far Away – Avenged Sevenfold

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

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 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 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

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 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 but 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 untied

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