Bring Me To Life

As Reno mentioned, Evanescence really does rock. I can't get enough of Amy's haunting vocals, and the way the band sounds as a whole is amazing; I think the ballads are their strength, although the harder rock songs are really great as well.
I don't own any Evanescence albumbs, but purchased "My Immortal" and "Bring Me To Life" off of iTunes, and they now grace the inner workings of my iPod. If there are any devoted Evanescence fans out there reading this, please give me some tips on top Evanescence songs...I have only heard a few. Someday - when I have money - I plan on purchasing "Taking Over Me" via the power of the internet.

My English 1 class is focusing on poetry at the moment, and, since songs are really just poems set to music, my English teacher gave the class a homework assignment that involved writing down a little bit of our favorite song and telling the class why we liked it. I don't have a "favorite" song - how on earth could I choose?! - but "Bring Me To Life" rocks hard core, so I chose that one. I ended up writing down the first verse and chorus to share with the class.

Anyway. Here are the lyrics; enjoy.

Bring Me To Life

{verse one}
How can you see into my eyes like open doors
Leading you down into my core
Where I’ve become so numb
Without a soul
My spirit's sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

{verse two}
Now that I know what I’m without
You can't just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life


Bring me to life
(I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside)
Bring me to life

Frozen inside without your touch without your love
Darling only you are the life among the dead

{verse three; duet}
All this time I can't believe I couldn't see
Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything
Without a thought without a voice without a soul
Don't let me die here
There must be something more
Bring me to life


(Bring me to life)
I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside
Bring me to life
