farther away lyrics – evanescence

[guitar solo open]

i took their smiles and i made them mine.
i sold my soul just to hide the light.
and now i see what i really am,
a thief a wh*r*, and a liar.
i run to you,
(and run away from this h*ll)
call out your name,
(giving up, giving in)
i see you there,
(still you are)
farther away.

im numb to you – numb and deaf and blind.
you give me all but the reason why.
i reach but i feel only air at night.
not you, not love, just nothing.
i run to you,
(and run away from this h*ll)
call out your name,
(giving up, giving in)
i see you there,
(still you are)
farther away.

try to forget you,
but without you i feel nothing.
don’t leave me here, by myself.
i can’t breathe.
i run to you,
(and run away from this h*ll)
call out your name,
(giving up, giving in)
i see you there,
(still you are)
farther away.

i run to you,
(and run away from this h*ll)
call out your name,
(giving up, giving in)
i see you there,
(still you are)
farther away.
farther away,
farther away,
farther away,
farther away,
farther away.
