So Far Away Lyrics - Staind

Review The Song (16)



This is my life
Its not what it was before
All these feelings I’ve shared
And these are my dreams
That I’ve never lived before
Somebody shake me
Cause I, I must be sleeping

(chorus)
And now that we're here,
So far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
And all the mistakes,
One life contained
They all finally start to go away
And now that we're here its so far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive, and I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today

These are my words
That I’ve never said before
I think I’m doing ok
And this is the smile
That I’ve never shown before

Somebody shake me
Cause I, I must be sleeping

(chorus)
And now that were here
So far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
And all mistakes one life contains
They all finally start to go away
And now that were here
So far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive, and I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today

I'm so afraid of waking
Please don't shake me
Afraid of waking
Please dont shake me

(chorus)
And now that were here
So far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
And all the mistakes one life contains
They all finally start to go away
And now that were here
So far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive, and I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today

For me this song really relates to my new found sobriety. it is totally fitting for this new found dream getting to be who I only dreamed i could be....all my mistakes finally start to fade away.

"I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today" | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/6/11

Me and my boyfriend have had many problems over the last 3 years of our (so far 11 year) relationship. Most of them were directly related to his prescription pill abuse and all the lies that were so closely related to that, such as money issues and pawning things away, etc..

After getting help for his addiction, things improved dramatically, and quickly as well. After he heard this song on the radio he told me that the line "I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today" meant so much to him because back then, he could hardly look at himself in the mirror without being ashamed of himself and what he had become.

The soul and pain and anguish in the voice of Aaron Lewis is so powerful and makes you feel the lyrics rather than hearing them. To this day, this song still makes me think of how much better our lives are now that my BF got the help he needed, and for that reason, it will always be high on my playlist and in my heart.

Class of 2011 | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/27/11

This year I graduated highschool with the class of 2011 and at out senior breakfast they played this song on our senior video, that had pics and memories of our high school years. It brought a lot to tears to peoples eyes. This song also reminds me of my ex best friend who I lost to all the rumors she spread herself, about me, you know it pretty much is like the game telephone.... by the time you hear the rumor, its all screwed up. Well one thing you learn in your senior year is: you find out who your friends are ~ VKM

@ CorrineLee | Reviewer: Mark | 6/7/11

first, let me just quote you when you said you hate being 15. i think i kno why. its because people still treat you like your younger and try to protect you, when you know full well that you can take care of your self. i know this because this is exactly how i feel, but i may be wrong about you, i dont just guessing...anyway back to the song,i liked your review on it and agree that it is hard to place. by the way, feel bad for you on the whole friend thing, something like that happoned to me once too.

WOW. | Reviewer: CorrineLee | 4/4/11

ok. well. this is, by far, one of my favorite Staind songs. i looove the intensity in Aaron Lewis' voice, it makes me wanna CRYYYYYY but i wont. kuz im better then that; i dont cry over boys. teehee!

no, but rlly, the lyrics the bass strum, its liek WOO! i heard this song on my 15th b-day for the first time (i hate being 15 ;~;) and i was all THIS IS MY SONG! and im trying to figure out how to play it on the piano, but its kinda hard; i keep making it sound liek the Beetles AHH!



I ruv staind. :D ruv dem.

i liek friendly debates! | Reviewer: CorrineLee | 4/4/11

"This song is a toughy because the lyrics can sometimes be misunderstanded. To me its about letting go of the things that you once loved and moving on with life. The reason why it hits me so deep is that i used to have a friend named Ryan Corey who was my best friend then one day decided to stab me in the back. The thing that he stabbed me in the back for is not important. I owe everything that happened to me in the past year to him. He changed my life. We do not talk anymore and I could care less if i ever seen him, but I owe him a big THANK YOU!!!! for everything he did for me. He showed me the true meaning of life." --- murphdogg

thats a pretty cool point on that; i didnt think of it that way. however, and i DO agree with you to an extent, i have to argue that the song is not about letting go of the things you once loved, but the realization of the fact that you maybe didnt let go of the past, but remembered, respected, and thoroughly accepted the facts of the past, and simply moved on.

i had a friend liek that; she was soooo nice. but im sort of popular around my school, and i had other friends. i tried to keep up with her, but she still got jelous. so she hacked my youtube and put up a VERY TERRIBLE video (dont ask)about me. then she hacked my facebook and hotmail, pretended to be me, and said really mean things to my friends (again, dont ask.). now she's mean and hostile to everyone, which makes me sad, kuz i keep trying to befreind her, but she gets mad at me... LIFE IS TERRIBLE. but sexy. ;D sexy liek ANDY SIXX WOOHOO!

This is such an inspirational song. Every time I hear it I feel a wave of nostalgia and guilt because of the mistakes I made in my life. This song helps me accept the changes and new chapters in life.

This song has always been one of my favourites. It just reminds me of all the changes in life, but especially good ones. It helped me through change, though at the time, my life was changing badly.

This song makes me want to live my dream more and more when i here it | Reviewer: Torrie Ws Man 4Ever And Always | 1/8/08

i mean i want to work as something called a WWE Wrestler (WWE - World Wrestling Entertainment) and have wanted to for quite a long time know because it's my dream and everytime i watch it i think to myself i could be entertaining people all around the world putting my own body on the line night after night after night wheather i have to go through blood sweat and tears to entertain them fans or not as long as i am entertaing each and every single one of them then to me that's all that matters and if i have to go threw putting my own body threw hell to entertain them fans then i will do it but i also think to myself when i watch wrestling about how my mum,dad,family and everyone i love and get on with will take it because they all hate wrestling accept me and my brother and i think it's just because it's fake.But when i do think about it and i think how my family will react it just makes me what to have a go (Shout/b***ock)someone for no reason but that's the way i feel about it.It's the same with one of the women who work on that WWE wrestling she's something called a diva and i have loved her since she was in another wrestling company called WCW (World Championship Wrestling)which was her first wrestling company she wrestled for and that's when i fell in love with her when i saw her on there for the first ever time and i have loved her since even when WWE bought WCW and she joined WWE so i have loved her since she was with a team called the filthy animals back in WCW all the way to know 2008 and i'm more in love with her know i mean i'm obsessed and crazy about her and think about spending the rest of my life with her and showing her that she means everything to me like i will put my own body on the line/at risk for her to keep her safe and stop anyone who try's upseting or/and hurting her and i do this for her because i love her with all my heart 4ever and always but again just like my mum,dad,family and everyone i love hates wrestling accept me and my brother well they also hate that women i really adore,appreciate,love and so much more but i haven't told them yet how much she really does mean and what i will do to make her feel love because that the way i feel about her so i haven't told them how much i love her yet because i know i will proberly upset them and be a huge shock to them just like the wrestling thing.By The way i go to the gym quite a lot and the only reason i go there is so that when i get more and more muscle i will hopefully be able to spend the rest of my life with the women of my life and work as a wrestler (Entertaing).
