Staind – So Far Away (Drum Cover)

July 28, 2016 by Nick Oshiro

I’m all alone, or is it a matter of perception? I’m writing you from within the matrix, hoping that you will hear my message. Screaming through a computer screen that you are good enough! You are perfect just the way you are. There is only one of you and everything is going to be ok. My friend Chuck says,”You are not what you think you are, but you are what you think!” I wish that I could give you the gift, but you already have it. It’s always been there watching and waiting, like an earthquake of love, ready to swallow you, and spit you back into euphoria. Love moves mountains a shovel full at a time, ask a friend to help. Try to walk more and talk less, happiness comes to those who believe it. I used to be sold on everything, my ego said. ¬†Now I believe what I am is in my heart, and not my head! Please don’t feel confused, watch the bachelorette! Light up a human and take a drag of that! I have walked for 8 years to tell you this and I stand before you open, with a new perception, bleeding my love into you the only way I know. I don’t know the future, but I love some of my past. I miss some of you so much, how are things? Maybe we can chase monsters¬†with our phones! Let it all change, let it go, all of it. Relationships, jobs, money, houses and most of all , what you know. Go ahead, take the boat out, go fishing, have coffee with a friend, learn to dance, go on a hike, travel, get to know your family, go snowboarding, and be sure to laugh, especially at yourself. Love until you cry and then love some more. You won’t get more than you can handle. I love expressing myself through these video’s and hope that they give you a boost as you go through your day. Most of all, thank you for watching, It’s so hard to describe how thankful I AM….

Lyrics-

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

Now that we’re here,
It’s so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
All in the mistakes,
One life contained
They all finally start to go away
Now that we’re here it’s so far away
And I feel like I can face the day, and 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 okay
And this is the smile
That I’ve never shown before

Somebody shake me ’cause I
I must be sleeping

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

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

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

  3. Those se some great words my friend! Well said. You really are an inspiration to me. Not only as an artist but as a human being. I’m glad I have met you back in Las Vegas and will continue to follow your career. Staind has been one of my favorite bands and this song in particular really hit home. Great video brother. Keep up the good work

  4. One of my favorite songs ever, it shows that there is light after darkness, and it is great to see that smile on Aaron’s face. I was glad to hear thru his lyrics that he was able to find the light in his darkness. I have always loved Drums and bass, rhythm moves the song after all, and this song in concert the drumming is amazing, yet you have done an even BETTER job!! Thank you for this!

  5. Hey Nick this is Teddy and I am doing research and was just moved by this Staind cover, man I never leave comments but I love this song I love Staind and you did it total Justice.
