"A Place Where You Belong" as written by Don Gilmore, Michael David Thomas, Michael Kieron Paget, Jason James and Matthew Tuck....
You're gone!
You're gone!

Your body's cold
Hope is lost, I can't let go
Can I die with you,
So we can never grow old?

Cut the ties (Cut the ties)
With this note you left behind
As I heed the words I hear you telling me why

Too late, too late
I never said goodbye
Too late, too late
Can't even ask you why
And now I'm wasting away
In my own misery
I hope you've finally gone,
To a place where you belong

My sadness shows,
As your name is carved in stone
Can't erase the words so the reality grows

I wish I died (I wish I died)
On that night right by your side
So just kill me now and let the good times roll

Too late, too late
I never said goodbye
Too late, too late
Can't even ask you why
And now I'm wasting away
In my own misery
I hope you've finally gone
To a place where you belong

Will you wait for me? (Will you wait for me?)
Will I see you on the other side?
You won't have to wait too long
Yeah

Will you come to me? (Will you come to me?)
Will you take me to the other side?
'Cause here I don't belong

Too late, too late
I never said goodbye
Too late, too late
Can't even ask you why
And now I'm wasting away
In my own misery
I hope you've finally gone
To a place where you belong

I never said goodbye
Can't even ask you why
I'm wasting
Away in my own misery
I hope you've finally gone
To a place where you belong

    General CommentI agree with ED, however, I feel the reason she died so soon was because she took her life. "Keeping time with this note you left behind, as I read the words I hear you telling me why". She wrote why she did what she did and he's wondering why she did this. He's sad that she left him alone and hates her for it. But he still loves her, and hopes she goes to Heaven, the 'Place where you Belong'

    Lyric CorrectionYou're dead!
    You're dead!

    Your body's cold, hope is lost, I can't let go
    Can I die with you so we can never grow old?
    Cut the ties with this note you left behind
    As I read the words I hear you telling me why

    Too late, too late
    I never said goodbye
    Too late, too late
    Can't even ask you why
    And now I'm wastin' away in my own misery
    I hope you've finally gone to a place where you belong

    My sadness shows as your name is carved in stone
    Can't erase the words so the reality grows
    I wish I'd died on that night while by your side
    So just kill me now and let the good times roll

    Too late, too late
    I never said goodbye
    Too late, too late
    Can't even ask you why
    And now I'm wastin' away in my own misery
    I hope you've finally gone to a place where you belong

    Will you wait for me? (Will you wait for me?)
    Will I see you on the other side?
    You won't have to wait too long, yeah
    Will you come for me? (Will you come for me?)
    Will you take me to the other side?
    Cause here I don't belong

    Too late, too late
    I never said goodbye
    Too late, too late
    Can't even ask you why
    And now I'm wastin' away in my own misery
    I hope you've finally gone to a place where you belong

    I never said goodbye
    Can't even ask you why
    I'm wastin' away in my own misery
    I hope you've finally gone to a place where you belong

    General CommentI'm hearing "Your Dead" at the beginning but either make perfect sense with the rest. Then "my sadness shows as your name is carved in stone." Loving their new album. Song is pretty straightforward, love song to someone who died, he's calling out for her to save him since she left so soon. Beautiful :)

    Lyric CorrectionI think it's "Cut the ties with this note you left behind" not "Keeping time with this note you left behind"

    And I'm hearing "you're gone" at the beginning, so I think that's right.

    General Commentit sounds like "You're Dead" to me at the beginning, either way the guitar solo is probably the best on this album, they really blew me away with FEVER, epic fucking album

    General CommentThis song definitely sounds like somebody committed suicide. Either in a relationship or a family member, but mostly a relationship as it seems.

    "Too late, too late
    I never said goodbye
    Too late, too late
    Can't even ask you why"

    He/she was too late to stop the one who took their own life. He/she never got to say goodbye to that person, and he/she can't ask why because they wouldn't understand.

    "Cause here I don't belong"

    I think this message is clear, obviously this person believes that he/she doesn't belong here, they belong by the side of the person that committed suicide.

    But other than meaning, I love this song. One of my favorites by them. <3

    General CommentIts about somebody becoming incredibly depressed over a very close person killing themselves, and the song kinda tells about how when a person commits suicide, the people around might be led into the same action. "Will I see you on the other side? You won't have to wait too long." Its a really meaningful song to me, i love it.
