I Won't See You Tonight Part 1 Lyrics

Play "I Won't See You Tonight Part 1"
on Amazon Music

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...

    This song has to do with a severely depressed person looking for an out. The song is supposed to resemble a suicide note (rumored to be influenced by a friend and/or bandmate of M. Shadows). The person is most likely using alcohol / cough syrup / and/or pills to do the job as evident in the line "As bottles call my name I won't see you tonight". The purpose of the song is similar to the lines in the NOFX song "Door Nails":

    You know suicide isn't painless
    When you leave everyone in pain

    to me its someone trying to tell people they left behind that even though they are gone they will always be around it was just their time to go even if i did corse alot of pain to loved ones who blame themselves (dont morn for me your not the ones to place the blame).
    its almost a forgiveness plea even though they took their own life they still want to be forgiven for their actions. death can be hard but so can life some people need to find their way to get through it even if it means ending it all.

    What it means is a man (witch is former band member A7X Justin Sane)about to commit suicide. It also reminds of my best friend who almost did it and the lyrics of this song is probably in his head (at least close) but A7X really did it, i love this song so much ROCK ON AVENGED SEVENFOLD!

    This song was written because their former bassist Justin Sane (not from anti-flag) tried to commit suicide and failed, wrote a note to them and parts are in the song and the I Won't See You Tonight Part 2 was written from the point of view from the friends and family and what they felt when he tried to commit suicide.

    Its about their old bassist and how he tried to kill himself. The song actually features parts of his suicide note. though he didnt die from it

    Although this may not be right I always saw this song as a persons view after suicide realizing that he left people in so much pain that this is worse than his life.

    He's nailed this one. This is about the suicide of former bassist Dameon Ash. Need I say more its a song of forgiveness and remembrance to his great friend.
