Dear God

Have you ever seen a T with A7X written on it? Never? Do you see pictures of them in someone’s orkut album, facebook or whatever?
Have you ever heard of Avenged Sevenfold’s music? If not, me neither until yesterday when I listen to a song called “Dear God”.
I use to call myself a music prostitute. Music is a part of my life; I love it and will always do. I listen to any music, no matter what genre they belong to. But, I listen to them according to the mood. Listening to Blake Shelton’s Austin on a lonely cold night will fill your eyes with tears. And banging your head with Iron Maiden’s Aces High on a hot beautiful day will sure make you feel energetic all day long.
Back to the topic. Last week my younger brother told me to send him A7X’s CDs. I never listen to their music; so the first thing I have to do is go out and look for the CDs. Then, I told my roommate about it and he said, “Hey, you don’t need to go out, I have all of them.” Huizz, lucky me!
I saw this song titled Dear God among them, just then a curiosity bug bit me and I listen to the song. I thought A7X were a hard rock/heavy metal band, but why do they sing this country-like song or you may call it progressive? From the first time I listen to it, I was addicted.
I listen to it over and over again. The strumming of the guitars and the slowly beating drums are running through my veins. Needless to mention the vocal is awesome. And above all the lyric kills me. Here goes.
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
It’s repentance. Reminds me of the joke – Single again, but with experience. Now whoever is the composer knows his mistake and won’t do it anymore. His only wish is to be with her. Do you ever heard of a song in which they ask God to guard their loved ones? I bet there won’t be many of them.

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
Please God, hold her in your loving arms when I’m not there, around. I know she’ll be safe in Thy loving hands. Cause, I’m so so far away. Putting this in your situation, will you ask God to hold her? Or will you just worry about her if she’s dating other guy or not? I’ve learnt a lesson, just to put your loved ones in the hands of the Almighty.
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
How sad!! I can tell you the same story here. I knew the loneliness when your friends are with their ice queens. And you? All alone? Yes, because she’s on far. All I could do is to look at the pictures of the happy times we had. She’ll be back…. I’m sure. And I’m looking forward to more happy times. I think this is what we called “Kar hla D” in mizo. :D
Last, if you haven’t listened to the song. Listen it, you won’t regret.
PS : the 2nd & 3rd picture has nothing to do with the story :-)
