Gone Away - The Offspring

My best friend lost his older brother at the far too young age of 21. He was killed in a car collision on his way to work.

And my poor beautiful best friend, who was only 18 at the time, was the only one home when the police came to the house to give the terrible news.

"Gone Away" is the song that summed up exactly how the family felt and still feels but they decided against playing it at the funeral as it seemed to hard for a funeral.
The lyrics are so beautiful and sad.

In two days it will have been a year since he passed away. RIP


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 away

Leaving flowers on your grave
Show that I still care
But black roses and Hail Mary's
Can't bring back what's taken from me

I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would

And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it stings
Yeah it stings now
The world is so cold
Now that you've gone away
Gone away, gone away, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oooooo, yeah oooooo, oooooo, Ohh yeah.

I'll Save Your Soul
Whoa. Yeaaaaaeeeaaeah. Mm.

I reach to the sky
And call out your name
Oh please let me trade
I would

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 away
Gone away, gone away, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
