lyrics

Faraway Friend ..
friend like no other ..
Where did you go?
I miss you so

Faraway Friend.
Maker of music
where did you go?
I miss you so

You will Live On My Friend

With every guitar note and every swell
You will Live on my friend
So Full Of Love and So full of Passion
You are gone in flesh but the music lives on.


Far Away Friend.. Maker of history .. With every year gone We miss you more
Faraway Friend. There in the beginning Gone in a Flash but lives on in our Hearts

Your soul will never die

With every riff and solos cathartic
You will Live on my friend
So full of life even in passing
You will live on because the music lives on.

All Hail The King

With every guitar note and every swell
You will Live on my friend--
