Stay low
Soft, dark, and dreamless
Far beneath my nightmares and loneliness
Hate me
For breathing without you
I don't want to feel anymore for you

Grieving for you
I'm not grieving for you
Nothing real love can't undo
And though I may have lost my way
All paths lead straight to you

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you

Halo
Blinding wall between us
Melt away and leave us alone again
Humming, haunted somewhere out there
I believe that love can see us through in death

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you
There's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you
I'm coming for you

You're not alone
No matter what they told you you're not alone
I'll be right beside you forevermore

I long to be like you, sis
Lie cold in the ground like you did
There's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you
And as we lay in silent bliss
I know you remember me
I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you
There's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you
I'm coming for you

    amy lee wrote this song about her little sister who died at the age of three, and the song 'hello' on the album 'fallen' is also about her.

    Stay low
    Soft, dark, and dreamless.
    Far beneath my nightmares and loneliness.
    Hate me
    For breathing without you.
    I don't want to feel anymore for you.

    Grieving for you.
    I'm not grieving for you.
    Nothing real love can't undo.
    And though I may have lost my way.
    All paths lead straight to you.

    I long to be like you.
    Lie cold in the ground like you.

    Halo
    Blinding wall between us.
    Melt away and leave us alone again.
    Humming, haunted somewhere out there.
    I believe that love can see us through in death.

    I long to be like you.
    Lie cold in the ground like you.
    There's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you.
    I'm coming for you.

    You're not alone.
    No matter what they told you you're not alone.
    I'll be right beside you forevermore.

    I long to be like you, sis.
    Lie cold in the ground like you did.
    There's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you.
    And as we lay in silent bliss.
    I know you remember me.
    I long to be like you.
    Lie cold in the ground like you.
    There's room inside for two and I'm not grieving for you.
    I'm coming for you.

    I think this song is about how amy lee wants to be with her dead sister. That she'll die to be with her. Its so beautiful and depressing but thats what i love about it. I love how she really expresses he emotions through her songs and her voice is just so amazing! If i could b able to sing as high and pure like her idk wat i would do
