Avenged Sevenfold I Won't See You Tonight (part 1) Lyrics

Last updated: 01/14/2013 12:00:29 PM

Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
I've made the change,
I won't see you tonight

Sorrow, sank deep inside my blood
All the ones around me
I cared for and loved

Building up inside of me
A place so dark, so cold, I had to set me free
Don't mourn for me,
You're not the one to place the blame
As bottles call my name I won't see you tonight

Sorrow sank deep inside my blood
All the ones around me
I cared for and most of all I loved
But I can't see myself that way
Please don't forget me or cry while I'm away

Cry alone, I've gone away
No more nights, no more pain
I've gone alone, took all my strength
But I've made the change,
I won't see you tonight

So far away, I'm gone.
Please don't follow me tonight
And while I'm gone everything will be alright

No more breath inside
Essence left my heart tonight
No more breath inside
Essence left my heart tonight

I <3 this song. | Reviewer: Dave Tree | 1/14/13

This song is one of the greatest songs ever written in my opinion. Most people who dont really know much about Avenged Sevenfold probably think it is about The Rev, but it isnt. This song and album was made while he was still alive. It is talking about the bass player they had before Johnny Christ joined. He suffered from suicidal tendencies. The song is about the suicide note that he left M. Shadows.

i love the rev so much and i cried when i saw it on the news and everyone calls him a stupid metal head and i go off my narnys at them. they have no respect for the people who actuall deserve it. i am offically in love with this song ♥♥♥♥ I LOVE THE REV!!!

Such beauty and passion | Reviewer: Jasmine | 5/20/12

When I heard this song for the first time it hit my heart because it had so much passion in it, matts voice is just perfect for this song, the lyrics are so beautiful and so meaningful.

R.I.P rev, we will love you foREVer, your were my god and my inspiration. We all miss you!<3

REAL STORY BEHIND THIS SONG!! | Reviewer: Chase | 8/13/11

The song is literally written like a suicide note look at it

It is about M Shadows best friend, Justin Meacham aka Justin Sane, Justin Sane was his stage name, used in irony because he was far from sane sadly (former A7X bass player) who had severe depression and tried to commit suicide by drinking bottles of cough syrup.

"sorrow sank deep inside my blood" that's depression.
it's rummored that part of a suicide letter that Justin wrote to Shadows is included in the song (although A7X neither aknowleges or denies it) . ppl think if any part of the song is of justins' penmenship it's> "but I can't see myself that way. please don't forget me or cry while I'm away"

In the song 'justin' says he's 'setting himself free' and 'don't blame yourself or cry for me'

an interesting line in the song is "so far away i've gone. please don't follow me tonight"
I think this is part of justin's suicde letter because it's only something a suicidal person could possibly think of.
In the song you'll notice he worries significanly about how the people he loved would react. asking Shadows 'not to follow him'

"No more breath inside, essence left my heart tonight." nobody is sure on whether this was in Justins letter and shadows added it or if shadows composed this bit himself but very deep and powerfull

</3 Fave band | Reviewer: Josh Clarke | 6/11/11

This song is amazing, it's meaning is so strong. M.Shadows is the best singer I've ever heard. I've only been a fan of metal and A7X for two years but I love them soooo much. It's a shame about The Rev, fave drummer of all time. But they've carried on which is good, I'm sure that would have been what he wanted. They're new song is amazing (Not Ready To Die) Love them

the matrix | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/15/11

in my opinion, this song could have been used in the movie "the matrix" theres a part in the film where neo has realised that he is the one, and he will be able to save morphius. this song always reminds me of that scene, song section 5.25 - 6.50

Thebassse | Reviewer: Mike | 3/28/11

This song is very meaningful but it was written about the bands first bass player who went through months of suicidal tendencies. Shadows walked in on him trying to kill himself with cough medicine. They had to let him go and get a new bass player. Sad story, but great song.

Simply beautiful. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/19/10

Anyone realize how PERFECTLY this goes with Matt talking to Jimmy? This is probably my favorite song of all time. That's right, not just of A7X, but of any band to have ever made a song ever. The pure passion and work put into this, coupled with Matt's best performance I've ever heard, this is an absolutely AMAZING song.

Favorite Band | Reviewer: Ryan McCoy | 11/3/10

This song is the most powerful and moving song that i think ive ever heard....i had no clue that the rev died until sum1 told me. I gotta tell you...i hate it that the rev died. The guy was an insane drummer, and i will never forget him...

R.I.P Rev

Favourite band | Reviewer: blurgle | 10/10/10

The piano instrumental section is so powerful, even without lyrics. This is possibly the most moving song you will ever listen to, almost made me cry... So much emotion put into this piece of music :')
RIP Jimmy

This Song | Reviewer: Natalie Strachan | 9/29/10

Avenged Sevenfold are the best band in the world, im 13 and i have been listening to them my whole life tbh, they are fuckin' amazing. when i heard that Jimmy"The Rev"Sullivan died i cried m heart out that was the saddest day of my life tbh, he was the best drummer in the world and his memor will be alive foREVer. and this song i just cant get enough of it i love this song soo much <3 xxxx

Depression | Reviewer: Vengeance07 | 8/5/10

Well this song was the most depressing song I ever heard until Fiction... but I always had the interest in this song because of the lyrics and the passion that is being transmited to the audience and fans... as always I hear a depressing song and now all I think of is the REV, the way he always had a smile on his face and gave all that he had to give in the concerts... I just wanted to take a minute to show my respects to the family and to say that this is the best drummer ever... I felt like hell when he past away, yeah I cried a lot, and also I wondered why someone so full of life could just leave this world and left all this memories that now us the fans are always replaying them in our minds... I just want to say that I miss him and that he will always be in my heart foREVer... and I'll be here to keep on drumming in your memory Jimmy!! I love u

rest in peace | Reviewer: grey | 7/27/10

i've never had to cry myself to sleep until i heard that the rev died. i couldn't listen to avenged sevenfold's music for months because all i could hear was the sounds of his drums and it'd leave me crying but after listening to this, i've sung myself to sleep with these lyrics and it comfort me that the guys have been able to go on and perform and share their music with us. the piano introduction is the most calming thing to hear these days (even now that's it's almost been a year) and i know jimmy's legacy will live on as long as i can listen to their music.
ramble ramble~

pain | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/12/10

I've ever listened to this song for an hour repeatedly. I can't hold my self not to listening it again and again. I can feel the essence of this song is so deep. As though I also feel what they felt when they wrote this song. I think M Shadows did his part very well, it makes the song can send a special feeling to the listener. This is my fav song.

</3 | Reviewer: ShannA7X | 6/9/10

Man, this song gets me everytime, when I'm sat in the living room, being watched by my Mom and Dad, it's so hard not to cry...Every word in this song I understand, because my brother took his own life 6 almost 7 years ago and Avenged Sevenfold have kept me on my feet for that amount of time. I love you boys.
I mean...I hope they keep going. Nightmare is a sick ass song, I wanna find where 'So Far Away' by Gates...anyone know?
Rip Jimmybear. Miss you more everyday babes. Loveyou my Retarded Gollywog. (private joke, please don't take offence) xx
