 "So Far"




Bridge - Lyrics

"Should you have to throw it all away?
Did you have to shove it in my face?
Did you have to tear my world apart?
Did you have to take so selfishly?
No matter how you hurt the ones you need?
Did you have to fall so very far?"

Lost in the moment. What went wrong?
There’s nothing left this house has been broken
But still I’m holding, I’m holding on"

Glad that you guys love this music as much as I do! Been a fan of Tremonti's riffs since his breakthrough in Creed.
