Playground school bell rings again.
Rain clouds come to play again.
Has no one told you she's not breathing?
Hello, I'm your mind giving you
Someone to talk to.
Hello.

If I smile, and don't believe
Soon I know I'll wake from this dream
Don't try to fix me, I'm not broken.
Hello, I'm the lie living for you so you can hide.
Don't cry.

Suddenly I know I'm not sleeping
Hello, I'm still here.
All that's left of yesterday.

    This song is just completely amazing. It's sad, yes. The first time I listened to it, the part when her voice goes really high and really pretty from the deeper sound (which is also pretty :)) sent chills down my spine. I don't cry or I try not to, so that's really all your going to get out of me, but, I've lost a lot in my life, -never really a death, but I've lost a lot- and this song always makes me feel better. Thanx evanescence :)

    I know 4 a fact that this song is about her little sister that dyed when she was in school. Well, acually I just saw the comments made by people on YouTube. But still, you can tell its about her little sister dying. Two songs that almost get me cring is my immortal, hello, and breath no more. I alsom like to hear bring me to life, going under, sweet sacrifice, lies, everybodys fool, andall tha I'm living for. Really great songs, you should listen to them. Awesome. Peace and lol smileyz face!

    I really never understood this song but one night it was snowing outside and our power was out for a few days everyone in the house was asleep and our pellet stove caught on fire spilling smoke into the whole house, still everyone was asleep. I was asleep and I heard this song it woke me out of my sleep if I had not woke up when I did my wife my daughters and I would be dead. This is a true story no matter how strange it seems.

    Amy Lee has such a great voice. You can hear her grief in the lyrics, in her voice and it gives the song power. It' a song that moves everyone really.
    Her sister died at age 3 from an (unknown?) illness when Amy Lee was six, I think. That's where the line 'Has no one told you she's not breathing? ' comes in. From the lyrics, it seems that she forces herself to believe that it's all a dream but something then makes her realise that it's real but her sister is there, always, reminding her of yesterday.
    At least, that's my opinion.
