"Away In Silence" as written by Mark Tremonti and Scott Stapp....
You walked away in silence
You walked away to breathe
Stopped and turned around to say goodbye to me
I'm pleading as you're leaving I'm begging you to stay
I'm not the man I used to be, I've changed
I'm not the man I used to be, I've changed

Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
If my life is the price, then my life it will cost
Now that I'm picking up the pieces see the pain that I have caused
It's hard to believe in someone you thought was lost
Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
Don't you walk away in silence

In tears you counted reasons
Tears covered you it seemed
Face down screaming "God help me please"
I'm pleading as you're leaving I'm begging you to stay
I'm not the man I used to be, I've changed
I'm not the man I used to be, I've changed

Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
If my life is the price, then my life it will cost
It will cost my life
Now that I'm picking up the pieces see the pain that I have caused
It's hard to believe in someone you thought was lost
Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
Don't you walk away in silence
Please come back to me
Don't you walk away in silence
I'm not the man I used to be!

Well I pray that tomorrow you'll be home
We can rebuild and forever we can go on
Go on, and go on
We can go on, well I pray that tomorrow you'll be home
Look at horizons and let the light bring you home (home), bring you home

Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
If my life is the price, then my life it will cost
It will cost my life
Now that I'm picking up the pieces see the pain that I have caused
It's hard to believe in someone you thought was lost
Don't give up on us, don't give up on love
Don't walk away in silence
Please don't walk away
Don't walk away in silence
I'm not the man I used to be!

    General Commentthis song is definitley about forgetting the past and how he has been changed by different mistakes made in the past. I believe this song contains a spiritual message as well since scott stapp has a christian background.

    General CommentSeems very much like he is apologizing to the other band members, and telling them he has changed. Very personal song for Stapp and the rest of the band.

    Also I believe it is "Look at horizons and let the light bring you home".

    General CommentDefinitely about him basically apologizing to his band members and to the rest of the world for being so caught up in fame, and now he's telling us that he's changed and for everyone to forgive him.
    Great song.

    My OpinionI agree that it sounds liek a song that aplogizes to the Band.

    This song sometimes makes me cry, it means alot to me.
    In my opion this is can be used for disbanded friendships, I almost lost all my best friends due to something I must have done. So this is really speaks to me.
