my immortal

February 28, 2006

Ever since being introduced to Evanescence a few weeks ago I have been listening to them pretty much non-stop. All of their lyrics speak to me, but this song in particular has been meaningful.

my immortal

my immortal i'm so tired of being here suppressed by all of my childish fears and if you have to leave i wish that you would just leave because your presence still lingers here and it won't leave me alone

these wounds won't seem to heal this pain is just too real there's just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears and i've held your hand through all of these years but you still have all of me

you used to captivate me by your resonating light but now i'm bound by the life you left behind your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

these wounds won't seem to heal this pain is just too real there's just too much that time cannot erase

when you cried i'd wipe away all of your tears when you'd scream i'd fight away all of your fears and i've held your hand through all of these years but you still have all of me

i've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone and though you're still with me i've been alone all along
