The Rock n’ Roll Therapy Sessions-So Far Away

The song, “So Far Away” by Staind has become a rally song for me. It does not speak about how I feel, or what I am going through. It speaks of how I want to feel. It says every thing I want to say whenever we make it through the crap that we have been dealing with. It is a song of hope. When things get really dark, the lyrics will swim through my mind, reminding me that one day, all this crap will be far away.

We just got some good news today that puts this song closer to reality. I really want to perform this song at my church.

This is my life
Its not what it was before
All these feelings I’ve shared
And these are my dreams
That I’d never lived before
Somebody shake me
Cause I, I must be sleeping

(chorus)
Now that we’re here,
It’s so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
All the mistakes,
One life contained
They all finally start to go away
Now that we’re here its so far away
And I feel like I can face the day
I can forgive and I’m not ashamed to be the person that I am today

These are my words
That I’ve never said before
I think I’m doing ok
And this is the smile
That I’ve never shown before

Somebody shake me
Cause I, I must be sleeping

(chorus)

I’m so afraid of waking
Please don’t shake me
Afraid of waking
Please don’t shake me

(chorus)
