"Years Go By" as written by and Timo Tapio Tolkki....
Look around do you see
So many things have changed
And you should know by now
I never meant to hurt you at all
All my life I have been an outcast
But now I´ve been reborn
And I see things so clear

Open your eyes and realize
Hard times are over if you want
Open your mind
Reach for the stars
Answer is there for us to find

Years go by
Never know when it´s too late
Years go by
Yourself you seal your fate
Don´t look the answer from horizon
It´s closer than you think
Years go by, oh how they go by

    General CommentThis song talks about a few things. The first part could be referring to something he did to someone. They may have found it hurtful, but he never meant for them to feel that way, and that over the years they should realize that by now.

    The rest of it talks about how what you're looking for is right in front of you. We work our whole lives thinking that it'll build up to something, and we use working as an excuse to getting us there, but it's really been there the whole time. That's what it means when it says Don't look the answer from horizon. Our whole lives we always think we need to look ahead to the horizon. There will ALWAYS be a horizon, and you can never get to it. What you're looking for is right there.

    It's called and it says in the song Years Go By because years go by and you never know when it's too late to do something, hence the line in the song. To reiterate: What you're looking for is probably right there. For example, let's say you want to be a musician. Become one. Write songs and get out there. You don't always need to go to years of music school to be able to do it. If you do things like that for everything, years will go by and it'll be too late to do it.
