Avenged Sevenfold - Dear God Lyric A lonely road, crossed another cold state line Miles away from those I love purpose undefined While I recall all the words you spoke to me Can't help but wish that I was there And 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 purpose undefined 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 Songwriters: Brian Haner / Jr. / Brian Elwin Haner / Jr. / James Sullivan / James Owen Sullivan / Jonathan Seward / Matthew Sanders / Matthew Charles Sanders / Zachary Baker / Zachary James Baker Dear God lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

A house is a permanent structure built for people to live in. There are a number of other related meanings, but that's the primary one. A person's home is the place where they normally live in. (Again, several related meanings also exist.) As it happens, a lot of people live in houses, so often a person's home will be their house. It could be something else, though, such as an apartment, a trailer, a boat, a tent or even a cardboard box under a bridge. None of those would normally be called a house in English. The word "home" is almost always used as an attribute of a specific person (or of a group of people living together): "my home", "your home", "their home". It is possible to use the word "home" without specifying who it belongs to (as in "Hundreds of homes were destroyed by the hurricane."), but even then, it carries the connotation that somebody lives in the place so described. An empty, abandoned house would not normally be called a home. The word "home" can also more generally refer to places larger than a single building. For example, I could describe the town or the country I live in (or where I feel I belong, even if I'm temporarily living somewhere else) as my home. The word "home" carries a very strong emotional connotation, a sense of a personal connection with a place, whereas "house" is mostly emotionally neutral. Indeed, a desire to avoid that sense of emotional significance, in situations where it might be awkward and unwanted, may be one reason for the common substitution of "house" (or more generally "place") for "home" in colloquial use, as in "Let's go to my house and watch TV." Inviting someone to your house just feels a lot less emotionally significant than inviting them to your home. There is a common phrase to make a house a home, which means to make it look friendly and lived-in and, really, personal. This is achieved by pictures on the wall, books on shelves, scatter cushions, or whatever signifies home to the residents. In general

Prepositions Prepositions are short words (on, in, to) that usually stand in front of nouns (sometimes also in front of gerund verbs). Even advanced learners of English find prepositions difficult, as a 1:1 translation is usually not possible. One preposition in your native language might have several translations depending on the situation. There are hardly any rules as to when to use which preposition. The only way to learn prepositions is looking them up in a dictionary, reading a lot in English (literature) and learning useful phrases off by heart (study tips). The following table contains rules for some of the most frequently used prepositions in English: Prepositions – Time English Usage Example on days of the week on Monday in months / seasons time of day year after a certain period of time (when?) in August / in winter in the morning in 2006 in an hour at for night for weekend a certain point of time (when?) at night at the weekend at half past nine since from a certain point of time (past till now) since 1980 for over a certain period of time (past till now) for 2 years ago a certain time in the past 2 years ago before earlier than a certain point of time before 2004 to telling the time ten to six (5:50) past telling the time ten past six (6:10) to / till / until marking the beginning and end of a period of time from Monday to/till Friday till / until in the sense of how long something is going to last He is on holiday until Friday. by in the sense of at the latest up to a certain time I will be back by 6 o’clock. By 11 o'clock, I had read five pages. Prepositions – Place (Position and Direction) English Usage Example in room, building, street, town, country book, paper etc. car, taxi picture, world in the kitchen, in London in the book in the car, in a taxi in the picture, in the world at meaning next to, by an object for table for events place where you are to do something typical (watch a film, study, work) at the door, at the station at the ta

English Conversation: Hotel Recommendations Listen to the conversation, then read the explanation of the words and phrases. Amanda: “I’m looking for a budget hotel in Orlando. Have you ever stayed at the Comfort Hotel?” Joe: “Yes… I wouldn’t recommend it.” Amanda: “Why not?” Joe: “Granted, it’s cheap, but the place is filthy, the beds are uncomfortable, there’s no A/C, the breakfast is pretty skimpy… and the staff couldn’t care less about the guests.” Amanda: “Oh. I guess you get what you pay for. How long did you stay there?” Joe: “Just one night, when my flight was canceled due to bad weather. It’s bearable if you just need a place to crash, but you definitely don’t want to book a vacation there. Unless you enjoy sharing your room with cockroaches.” Amanda: “Hmm, I’ll pass. Hopefully I can find a decent place that won’t cost a fortune.” CONVERSATION NOTES: Amanda is looking for a budget hotel – this means a hotel that is inexpensive – it doesn’t cost very much money. When she asks Joe about the Comfort Hotel, Joe gives her a list of negative points about it. Joe begins by saying “Granted, it’s cheap…” the word “granted” in this situation means “I acknowledge that” – you can use it to recognize a fact before presenting some counterpoints (facts on the opposite side). Joe says the hotel is filthy – that means “extremely dirty and disgusting.” Also, the beds are uncomfortable and there’s no A/C – air conditioning. The breakfast is skimpy – that means there is less food than there should be; the quantity of food is inadequate. Finally, the hotel staff “couldn’t care less” about the guests – that means the people who work at the hotel don’t care at all about the people who are staying there. Amanda uses the phrase “you get what you pay for.” This expression means “If you don’t pay much money for something, then it is probably of bad quality.” If you pay more, then you are more likely to get something that is high-quality. Joe only spent one night at the C

Most of the time, you'll want affect as a verb meaning to influence something and effect for the something that was influenced. The difference between affect and effect is so slippery that people have started using "impact" as a verb instead. Don't be one of them! 2#.... Affect is a verb almost always used to mean "to act on (someone or something) and cause a change." Effect is almost always used as a noun to mean "a change that results when something is done or happens." In other words, when you affect something, you cause an effect. The following example sentences show these uses: The weather affected our travel plans. = The weather had an effect on our travel plans. [=the weather caused us to change our plans] Pollution in the air affects our health. = Pollution has negative health effects. Your weight is affected by your diet. = Your diet has an effect on your weight. The new teacher has a positive effect on the children. = The teacher affects the children in a positive way. One side effect of the new medicine is sleepiness. = The medicine affects your ability to stay awake. Staying up late has no effect on my ability to wake up early. = Staying up late does not affect my ability to wake up early. Sometimes, especially in formal writing, effect is used as a verb to mean "to cause something to happen". The following example sentences show this use: The manager had the power to effect change within the company. The directors hoped to effect a smooth transition by working together during the merger. The people urged the government to effect reform. Sometimes, especially in formal contexts, affect is used to mean "to pretend that a false behavior or feeling is natural or genuine." The following example sentences show this use: He always affects a look of surprise [=pretends to be surprised] when the children draw him pictures. She affected concern for her neighbors. [=she pretended to be concerned] They affected Italian accents [=they spoke with fake Itali

8 English Grammar Mistakes That Even Advanced Students Make INCORRECT: I WORE A JEANS. CORRECT: I WORE JEANS. / I WORE A PAIR OF JEANS. The nouns jeans, pants, shorts, scissors and glasses are special. Although each word refers to one singular item, we can’t use “a” with these words. Instead, you can use no article or “a pair of.” If you want to talk about multiple items, say “two/three/four pairs of ________.” She’s wearing glasses. I bought a pair of shorts at the mall. There’s a pair of scissors on my desk. I have two pairs of white pants. INCORRECT: HE LOVES TEAM SPORTS AS SOCCER. CORRECT: HE LOVES TEAM SPORTS SUCH AS SOCCER. CORRECT: HE LOVES TEAM SPORTS LIKE SOCCER. When you want to give an example, use such as or like. Don’t use only “as.” Such as is more formal than like. INCORRECT: I DIDN’T SAVE MONEY ENOUGH. CORRECT: I DIDN’T SAVE ENOUGH MONEY. The word enough comes before a noun, but after an adjective: We have enough food. (food = noun) You’re not tall enough to go on the ride. (tall = adjective) INCORRECT: I WORKED A LOT IN LAST MONTH. INCORRECT: WE’LL MEET ON NEXT MONDAY. CORRECT: I WORKED A LOT LAST MONTH. CORRECT: WE’LL MEET NEXT MONDAY. We normally use “in” with months and “on” with days. However, when you use the words last and next, you don’t need “in” or “on.” INCORRECT: IT WAS SO LONG TIME AGO. CORRECT: IT WAS SO LONG AGO. CORRECT: IT WAS SUCH A LONG TIME AGO. Use so + adjective / adverb: She’s so friendly. This sandwich is so good. He works so hard. Use such a + adjective + noun: She’s such a friendly person. This is such a good sandwich. He has such a demanding job. Note: when the noun is plural, don’t use “a”: They are such friendly people. These are such good cookies. INCORRECT: I LENT TO HIM SOME MONEY. CORRECT: I LENT HIM SOME MONEY. CORRECT: I LENT SOME MONEY TO HIM. This rule applies to lend, give, and other verbs that have both a direct object and an indirect object. You can put the indirect object without “to” immediately aft
