Broken

I am so obsessed with this song.
A fan of both Evanescence and Seether, combining the two seemed like a given anyway. But, paired with beautiful, heart-wrenching lyrics and melodies ... no wonder this song has gotten so popular so fast.
This one breaks my heart every time. The emotion Shaun Morgan (of Seether) and Amy Lee (of Evanescence) both put into this song is more than words can describe. Shaun's edgy, classic-rock voice adds the perfect essence of pain and loneliness, and when paired with Amy's powerful, higher range ... it just gives you shivers. The melodies are perfectly presented and the lyrics are simply lovely. My favorite part may be the end, when the chorus is repeated over and over, adding intense guitar riffs as well as an electric violin ... wow.
The music video takes my breath away.
All in all, I just love this song. There's not much else I can say. One of those songs that doesn't even need an explanation ... just take a listen, and you'll know what I mean.
This is Broken, by Seether, featuring Amy Lee.

Seether featuring Amy Lee

I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph and I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

You've gone away, you don't feel me, anymore

The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There's so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

'Cause I'm broken when I'm open
And I don't feel like I am strong enough
'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

'Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
And I don't feel right when you're gone away

You've gone away
You don't feel me here anymore
