Gone Away Lyrics

Maybe in another life
I could find you there
Pulled away before your time
I can't deal, it's so unfair
And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it feels
Yeah, it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that you've gone...

    I'm going to dissect and analyze each line:

    "Maybe in another life, I could find you there" means maybe if/when I die, I'll see you in heaven.

    "Pulled away before your time, I can't deal, its so unfair and it feels..." means I lost you so early, I can't take it, I can't believe it, it's so unfair it feels like hell without you here.

    "And it feels like, the world has grown cold, now that you've gone away" means it's so different without you here.

    "Leaving flowers on your grave, to show that I still care" means I giving you signs that I'm still here and I love and miss you dearly.

    "Black roses and hail marys, I can't bring back what's taken from me" means I can pray all I want, but I cannot change what happened.

    "I reach to the sky, and call out your name. Oh, please let me trade, I would" means I call your name, but I get nothing, let me take your spot, that's how much I miss you and that's how devastated I feel.

    THIS IS HOW I VIEW IT. Not a lot of energy in this song, but it is VERY STRONG AND POWERFUL.

    When i hear this song it reminds me of my brother who died at the age of 22 and when i was only 14 i wished i could have traded places because i was living with my father and his family and they were not kind to me and when i heard the news i wished it was me instead of him.i cry everytime i hear this song.

    I was in Love with and married a warm , kind , Loving ,simple and complakated man. After 22 yrs he passed AWAY right in front of me.i would have traded places with him.3 yrs passed I met a man who I thought loved me.Since then I know what my husband ment when he said I Was To Trusting.I now know how cold life is without him.Life has been taken from me , he was only in his late 50s to young to leave this world. I don't know if we will ever see each other again. When I hear this song this is what I think of my life and other people going through this pain. Life is short . Jim wíll be in my heart and soul foreverand always.

    I know that a lot of people will talk about how this song is a cover of a song of The Offsprings, and yes it is. But because it is, it's a great example of how the interpretation of a song can change depending on a lot of things, like for example, who is playing it, while on The Offsprings version I feel the mourning and lost of someone close, how the world is colder because of this; in the version of Five Finger Death Punch, the feeling is different, it feels like someone with guilt, someone close died and the one who is singing feels guilty of it, like surivors guilt.

    So yeah, at least under my point of view, just by the way the interpretation of the song goes, the feelings associated change, I hope I'm not the only one who feels this difference

    An incredibly strong and powerful song. In my personal opinion, The Offspring version is better, but I understood the lyrics of the song so much more in the Five Finger Death Punch version than in The Offspring version.

    This song really hurt in to my heart. My father passed away when I was 3. This is true story of life,who have lose their lovely members. They are Struggling along with their self with out any help....I wish to them Keep pushing forward and get progress.. If you know someone in this situation please help them ..because they are heart wounded people. If you can help them little bit, this world will be heaven..... Don't miss them...
