Avenged Sevenfold – Dear God

By Irfan Nugroho

About seven months ago I heard this song. At a glance, this song seems the same as other love songs but, when I knew the band playing this song, I amazed, that is Avenged Sevenfold. Yeah, Avenged Sevenfold that is famous as a metal band also has a romantic side signed by this single that is booming now, especially in Indonesia in these two recent months. This band always makes me amaze for its characteristics and their young squads.

Yeah, it is Avenged Sevenfold. I knew this band firstly in 2003 with its single entitled “Warmless on the soul.” The last mentioned song had likewise made me admired this band. Love song played in single piano at the first part makes me feel the deepest sad of being fall in love. Therefore, for me, it is incredible knowing metal band can also play very very romantic song like Dear God and Warmless on the soul. It is awesome. Check the refrain of Dear God:

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
To hold her when I’m not around
When I much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
But I left her when I found her
And now I wish I’d stayed
Coz I’m lonely and I’m tired
I’m missing you again oh no
Once again

The refrain of Dear God reminds me to someone whom I love very much. It's hard to describe how much I love her. However, the distance separates us hence this song may be the soundtrack for the relationship between me and her. Perhaps, this song is also proper for you suffering the same experience as me, being separated by the distance from the one whom we love so much.

I love the drum beating and the acoustic guitar played in the beginning of the song. They have distinguished musical character as well as Bad Religion. This band is well-known for having good recording quality; hence I never feel strange hearing their music – even without their vocal. Moreover, the intro of this song, combined with sound of such piano or whatever, make me feel so sad.

Likewise, I love the middle part of this song when the acoustic guitar is played. No guitar distortions, no drum beating, the only acoustic guitar and part “A lonely road cross another cold state night….” After that, the refrain is sung at one level tone. Great combination I think.

With a female voice on this song, it makes me remember with my song “My Homeland.” Great! Love song, added with female voice on it, harmonious musical composition, and deep-heart lyric.

Finally, this song has successfully hypnotized me for about six minutes during this song is played., and reminds me to someone in the distance whom I miss. Of course you also feel the same as me. Right? Check out the lyric:

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love
Purpose hard to find
While I recall all the words you spoke to me
Can't help but wish that I was there
Back where I'd love to be, oh yeah

Dear God the only thing I ask of you
Is to hold her when I'm not around
When I'm much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
But I left her when I found her
And now I wish I'd stayed
'Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missing you again, oh no
Once again

There's nothing here for me on this barren road
There's no one here while the city sleeps
And all the shops are closed
Can't help but think of the times I've had with you
Pictures and some memories will have to help me through, oh yeah

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
To hold her when I'm not around,
When I'm much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her
And now I wish I'd stayed
'Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missing you again oh no
Once again

Some search, never finding a way
Before long, they waste away
I found you, something told me to stay
I gave in, to selfish ways
And how I miss someone to hold
When hope begins to fade...

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love
Hope is hard to find

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
To hold her when I'm not around,
When I'm much too far away
We all need the person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her
And now I wish I'd stayed
'Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired
I'm missing you again oh no
Once again
