Light Years Lyrics - Pearl Jam

Review The Song (6)



Vedder, McCready, Gossard

I've used hammers made of wood
I have played games with pieces and rules
I have deciphered tricks at the bar
But now you're gone, I haven't figured out why
I've come with riddles, and jokes about war
I figured out numbers and what they're for
I've understood feelin's and I've understood words
But how could you be taken away?

And where ever you've gone, and where ever we might go
It don't seem fair, today just disappeared
Your light's reflected, now
Reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

With heavy breath, awakened regrets
Back pages and days alone that could've been spent
sponsored links
Together, but we were, miles apart
Every inch between us becomes light years now
No time to be void, or save up on life
Oh, you gotta spend it all

And where ever you've gone, and where ever we might go
It don't seem fair, you seem to like it here
Your light's reflected now
Reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars

And where ever you've gone, and where ever we might go
It don't seem fair, today just disappeared
Your light's reflected now
Reflected from afar
We were but stones, your light made us stars.

matt's leaving | Reviewer: Renee | 4/9/11

My little brother was like the whole light to the family, when he was taking from us so out of the blue, I swear the Earth Cried too. Being Native we believe in the reasons and the why even if we don't want to see it at the time of such a heartbreaking moment. Matt was the kind of person that you wish for in life, and we had him in our family. He was born on Thanksgiving and was killed the year it would have been his brithday again on Thanksgiving, I can't help but cry when I type cause it still hurts soo much. He was no angel but he was a Real Person, never changed if you met him once and he liked you he made you a friend for life.This song feel like it was writing for him, more than likely he saw Pearl Jam sing it, since he went to see them when ever they were in California or Vegas, in fact he came home one time and told me Eddie was a cool dude,as he met him in a casino they were gambling. I didn't hear this song till after as I was going thru his music, as I heard it, it meshed right in with all I could remember about the crash, the funeral, and the site. It's a good thing, its good to cry, and its good to remember good people. Remember to live.



Light Years a "where did you go?" song. | Reviewer: Jenelle | 11/4/10

Actually, Eddie wrote this song to me when I wrote him a note answering a radio interview he had done. In the interview he stated that a certain song he had written may have not "necessarily" been about me. On the note I wrote a star name that has great signifigance to me, because it is more important than chasing fame like he does. I think he always wondered why I never took his bait. Mr. Vedder is not so secretive after all.

Light Years is one of the best Pearl Jam songs to me, and it means a lot to me. He sings about his girlfriend who passed away; therfor there's so much feeling in his voice. It's so beautiful, it almost makes me cry...

The great thing about Pearl Jam lyrics is that they can be very personal and reflect your own personal experiences. This song makes me think of the one true love of my life, who is no longer in my life. I'm glad she was though.



great song | Reviewer: chris gant | 1/12/05

i think this is very well written and touching song. I have come to expect meaningful lyrics from Mr. Vedder and pearl jam over the years. It is open to many interpretations. Whatever it means to different people, i think most would agree on its significance
