Song: So Far Away
Artist: Avenged Sevenfold
Album: Nightmare
Year: 2010

this is one of the most easiest songs of a7x.
there are more tabs of this song, i think the chords are right, but the solos and 
arpeggios are not(of the other tabs). I know most of A7X songs are on Drop D tuning, but this 
is Standart, im pretty sure of it.

I'm not english, american, austrailan or any country that speaks english, so you gotta 
excuse me if i make any mistake

Verse:

Em                        Em
Never feared for anything,
                           Em
Never shamed but never free
G                  D
A life to heal the broken heart
Bm               C
with all that it could

Em                        Em
Lived a life so endlessly
                          Em
Saw beyond what others see
G                    D
I tried to heal your broken heart
Bm              C
With all that I could

C
Will you stay?
D
Will you stay away forever?



Chorus:

[There's a small electric guitar part, listen very carefully for rhythm]

Em            G
How do I live without the ones I love?
Am                                Em
Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned
Em               G
Place and time always on my mind
Am                                  C   D
I have so much to say but you're so far away

Em                            Em
Plans of what our futures hold
                           Em
Foolish lies of growing old
G                  D
It seems we're so invincible
Bm                  C
The truth is so cold

Em                          Em
A final song, a last request
                              Em
A perfect chapter laid to rest
G              D             Bm          C
Now and then I try to find a place in my mind

C
Where you can stay
D
You can stay awake forever



Chorus:

Em                      G
How do I live without the ones I love?
Am                                Em        D
Time still turns the pages of the book it's burned
Em             G
Place and time always on my mind
Am                                  C    D
I have so much to say but you're so far away



Bridge:

E                C
Sleep tight, I'm not afraid
Am                        Em
The ones that we love are here with me
E          C
Lay away a place for me
D                                        C
'Cause as soon as I'm done I'll be on my way
   D
To live on eternally

Am                                       C   D       Em
When I have so much to say and you're so far away...
