Candlebox - Far Behind Lyrics




Now maybe
I did not mean to treat you bad
But I did it anyway
And now maybe
Some would say your life was sad
But you lived it anyway
And so maybe
Your friends they stand around they watch your crumble
As you falter to the ground
And then someday
Your friends they stand beside as you were flyin'
Oh you were flyin' oh so high

But then someday people look at you for what they call their own
They watch you suffer
Yeah they hear you calling home
But then some day we could take our time
To brush the leaves aside so you can reach us
But you left me far behind

Now maybe
I didn't mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now I said maybe some would say you're left with what you had
But you couldn't share the pain

No, no, no
Couldn't share the pain, they watch you suffer

Now maybe I could have made my own mistakes
But I live with what I've known
And then maybe we might share in something great
But won't you look at where we've grown
Won't you look at where we've gone
But then someday comes tomorrow holds
a sense of what I fear for you in my mind
As you trip the final line
And that cold day when you lost control
It's a shame you left my life so soon you should have told me
But you left me far behind, yeah
Now maybe I didn't mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you're left with what you had
But you couldn't share the pain
No, no, no

Oh no
Oh no no no no...
Now maybe I didn't mean to treat you oh so bad
But I did it anyway
Now maybe some would say you're left with what you had
But you couldn't share the pain
I said times have changed your friends
They come and watch you crumble to the ground
They watch you suffer
Yeah, they hold you down
Hold on down
Now maybe lover, maybe love
I didn't mean to treat you bad
But you left me far behind
Left me far behind
Left me far behind

  5. John Pinkham

    Every time I hear this song I want to eat a bullet thinking about the heart I broke with my narcissistic behavior. The only woman I will ever love the hardest that I've known for almost 20 years. I love you Babe and I'm sorry. The shame I feel for not being the real partner you need weighs so heavy on my heart now

    End of intro to funeral speech:

  10. WillDaBeast850

    Summer, 2018.

    My parents, my sister, and I were remodeling our house so we could sell it. We lived in the suburbs—there were friendly neighbors, friendly outdoors. They didn’t like how many people there were. I was the only one in the household that wanted to stay, so my opinion was overruled. We repainted every single room, replaced every bit of carpet with vinyl planks, and my dad played music as we worked, undoing the place I loved so much. He played this song more than any other. Every night, we’d watch Stranger Things on Netflix, and every day, after I finished painting, I’d invite my friend Sam over to play Halo with me in those last few months. This was the peak of my life, because it was directly before it all went to hell...the calm before the storm

  11. Jonny Brooks

    I hate you but damn we might have been oil an water .but in bed it was a fire that could not be matched.damn no one does it like you.anyway shape or place.damn we where good together..but I hate you.

  12. Logan Jukes

    R.I.P Shane. I'm gonna miss you buddy - Kenny Powers

  13. Theresa Hutson

    I sit and listen to the songs sometimes and man the memories come flowing back, you get that deep feeling inside that honestly I cant explain!!!
    I'm stuck in the 90's

  14. Bobbie Warfield

    Miss you Roxy!! 💔💋♥️😇😢

  15. Dewey McCoy

    Favorite song ever

  16. Brian Hedgecock

    My brother loved this song, RIP my friend ❤

  17. Dixie Gossett

    My husband lost his life just like this. It's such a sad but honest song. He pushed us away and drink himself to death because he was crippled and couldn't take the physical pain anymore. RIP my sweetheart. I'm having a very hard time forgiving him. But I loved him and always will. But body knows how bad he suffered but himself. I will always love you.

    Graham Friedman

    if nobody said they love you today, I love you

  18. Amy Meloney

    This is reminds me when I was 17 and my left me for Seattle for a Man..and To.this day we are best friends but at that time in 1993 this hit home..

  19. Tdogtheripper

    Anyone here still left far behind in 2020???

  20. joel franco

    Jason alan Ross suicide in huge in France was perfect for this song
    Doesn’t think his life’s gonna go anywhere lost his woman says fuck it makes a pill smoothie and as he’s dying he get the call to come back to an audition but it’s too late slowly his body shuts down and the phone is still on the line n he’s dying

  32. April Smith

    Every time I heard this song my heart just melts I think of someone who I really loved, he couldn't get the help he needed and it's sad I wish I knew what of battles he was fighting in his head that morning.

  33. Maria Taylor

    RIP mama You lived a hard life, we suffered together and now I'm left behind... You made it through Christmas, but missed your birthday on Wednesday. Happy Birthday mama ...Give my daddy a hug for me when you get there. My life is not the same without you. I miss you

  34. Michael C

    I shouldn't be listening to this, but I am this far away in my life. This was my mom's song to my dad, this is my song to both of them. Now just maybe this is someone's song to me. (Fuck I'm breaking)
    I'll be better than my parents.

  35. Jean ElSchner

    It not ptsd it the government that what I been told but your right about this song hit home I've been falling for years that because of the children aid society in Windsor

    Robert Pelletier

    Melissa Bueno

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Suicide is no joke or losing a parent . I to lost my parents, and my 17yr old nephew to suicide buried my mom less then 4 months later. Never have been the same since. But I try to be strong like he asked me to in his final letter. Each day count to 10 and breath.

  39. Michelle Hyatt

    I thought I had it all beautiful family beautiful home good job .... I took in 6 teenagers including my own made 7 and any adult that needed a place to stay with no ty or compensation... IBut it still wasnt god enough, so the Lord dropped us to our knees before we knew what hit us .. I went to the streets with my daughter at 17 where we were sesperated it was then I could truly understand the meaning of this song because we had know one that gave 0 shits nor 2 f**cks what happened to us . We actually watched them run and hide when we knocked in the am at there door (my sister after keeping her son for 2 years) I realized u only have me myself and I

  40. Benny6968

    Now maybe some would say the 90s left us far behind and drawed the final line

  41. paul kelly

    My girlfriend passed from heroine overdose recently and this song is so real. She was only 38 and had such a big heart but couldn't deal with life without that shit. Looking back i wish i wasn't so judgemental and tried to do more to help her. I look forward to our reunion when my time comes.

    Brett Servin

    😪😭. Draw close to God so you can see her again. Damn man I hate that happened. Take care of yourself I'm sure this person would want that for you because of the love that was still there. Addiction is no joke nor is it easy to escape. Everytime is always the last time. Then it really is...😭

  42. Kristin Fulton

    Just a great song, melodic and melancholy

  43. Mr. DowNutt

    I’m 13 and love rap...but this song slaps

  49. The Salty Firefighter

    Had PTSD for many years and stayed up many of nights listening to this classic..drinking and crying away all my pain this song has always been my song..it’s hits you right in the feels

    Amanda Goodwin

    I feel it. I was diagnosed with PTSD from a solid week of pediatric calls that weighs pretty heavy on me still a few years later. It seems i never stop reliving that shit and I cant talk to people about it... They seem to think I should just "get over it..."

    The Salty Firefighter

    Amanda Goodwin It’s hard to talk to people about it..because you isolate yourself. I never talked to much of my family about it but I went to Therapy for over a year and it really helped me..a lot more than the medications have, the therapist I went to used EMDR therapy it was first commonly used for veterans with PTSD but it’s a very good treatment. PTSD at times can feel lonely but you’re not alone there are plenty more of us who suffer with it, You are never alone !

    Amanda Goodwin

    @The Salty Firefighter I worked for 22KILL for a while and they do EMDR but I never tried it. My psychologist that I saw for 2 years wants me to do exposure therapy. Fuck that... I freak out even thinking about doing it. I live near a hospital and its hell... I am doing much better after seeing someone though. I gained skills to pull myself out of a lot. Keep your head up, man. We got this. 💪

    The Salty Firefighter

    Amanda Goodwin I’m glad your doing better and Thank you ! I still take it each day at a time some days are better than others but I’m doing a lot better than I was 4-5 years ago

  50. Tina Warth

    I really feel like kinda sorta that is what I was thinking about when I lost my other half my life and the miracle God gave me

    Eric Lee Vanostran

    I lost my soulmate 5/10/18 God rest her soul. Saved my life and mean that literally. I still have not been able to get a grip on my life.I keep falling with no end in sight.

  51. Nicole Dalfonso

    Omg oh yes I’m going to back in time

    Drug addicts having this shit thrust upon them because of some pain is BS... As told to me by my cousin who was a heavy drug addict for 20 years, "I enjoyed it. No one made me do it. I did it to fit in and it was fun. Until it wasn't and started making me feel bad and cause problems for those around me."
