Heart Shaped Box-Evanescence

I'm both a Nirvana fan and an Evanescence fan, but I have to say that I'm always wary of covers just because you're taking someone else's song and tailoring it yourself, and more often than not, it doesn't work out as well as you'd hoped. Well I'd heard Evanescence do Korn covers and Metalica covers, and those were wonderful, so I decided to check out their cover of Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box".

And I must say, that all my expectations were met. Amy Lee's voice is perfect for this song, and she delivers the vocals beautifully, as always. She always puts heart and soul into the songs she sings like I've never heard anyone else do before. This is a great cover!!!

Enjoy!


Heart Shaped Box-Evanescence (Nirvana Cover)


She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your Heart-Shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice

Your advice
Your advice
Your advice
