Light Years Lyrics

i've used hammers made out of wood
i have played games with pieces and rules
i undeciphered tricks at the bar
but now you're gone, i haven't figured out why
i've come up with riddles and jokes about war
i've figured out numbers and what they're for
i've understood feelings and i've understood words
but how could you be taken away?
and wherever you've gone
and wherever we might go
it don't seem fair...today just disappeared
your light's reflected now, reflected from afar
we were but stones, your light made us stars
with heavy breath, awakened regrets
back pages and days alone that could have been spent, together..
but we were miles apart
every inch between us becomes light years now
no time to be void or save up on life
you got to spend it all..
and wherever you've gone
and wherever we might go
it don't seem fair...you seem to like it here
your light's reflected now, reflected from afar
we were but stones, your light made us stars
and wherever you've gone
and wherever we might go
it don't seem fair...today just disappeared
your light's reflected now, reflected from afar
we were but stones, your light made us stars

I lost my little brother last year to a drug overdose. Everytime I hear this song I think of him, light years away.

About the same time Binuarl was released I was going to Summer Camp USA. This song became special to us as I wondered what it would be like to be in another place on the opposite side of the world.

One of the most beautiful songs Ive heard from PJ, life lessons learned from a song that tells us that life changes on dime and people leave to the beyond the beyond never to be seen again;say i luv u
