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 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

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

(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

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

Frozen (frozen) inside without your touch
Without your love, darling
Only (only) you are the life among the dead

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

(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

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

    @dezilove, not to be rude but noone really cares if everyone in school knows you love this song, noone cares that you have a boyfriend, no one cares how many friends you like, you're just bragging about stuff no one cares about, this is a lyric site not a brag about my life site. If you want that go to facebook, or myspace.

    I love this songg! This is the first song I ever heard from evanescence! They are amazing! Amy Lee's vocals are amazing and perfect in every way! And kevinharvick. You posted on the last few songs you commented on that you are emo. Question. Who really gives a damn? You can be gay and no one would care. Just my opinion. Thankies!

    It's. Like a way of trying to tell people that they're pushing the boundaries too far and that they're sending you into places where you'd rather not go, concious or not. And when you try to tell them; save yourself from the impending disaster you foresee, the very support you're clinging on to breaks. It almost seems like there's a sense of distrust, uncertainty and confusion behind it all.

    This song is about a girl that is so lost inside she doesn't know if she can break free of what she has become. She trys so hard to change but in the end she can't bring herself to do it, and its like she is dead inside and its killing her.

    I believe this song means that when all of a sudden your life turns upside down. You feel alone and that nobody is there to help you get you through your pain. Then, you finally realize that you shouldn't take life for granted. Life is a privalege so don't act like it doesn't matter what you do. You feel like you need to be saved and woken up from this nightmare and the only way you can do that is by faith and never say never.
