               So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold
                          Nightmare

Tuning: Standard

Here's a new song off A7X's new album, Nightmare. One of my 
favorite songs, and pretty easy to play. Listen to the song 
for the strumming, very easy to figure out. Also, the timing 
on the solos are a bit off with some notes, listen to the 
solos to get a feel for the notes. 
Note - the 2nd solo sounds the same when repeated, but there 
are slight variations each time, pay attention to those.

Em                        Em
  Never feared for anything
                             Em
  Never shamed but never free
    G                     D
  A laugh that healed the broken heart 
       Bm          C
  With all that it could

Em                          Em
  Lived the 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?

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

Em                               Em
  Plans of what our features hold
                              Em
  Foolish lies of growin' old
     G                  D           Bm          C
  It seems we're so invincible, 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

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

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 eternally

Solo lyrics:
I love you
You were ready
The pain is strong enough to despise
But I'll see you
When He lets me
Your pain is gone, your hands are tied

So far away
And I need you to know

So far away
And I need you to, need you to know...

Legend:
b   - bend up to fret
h   - hammer on
p   - pull off
s   - slide 
/   - slide up to
\   - slide down from
( ) - pinch harmonic
v   - vibrato
vvv - heavy vibrato
