Evanescence – My Immortal lyrics

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears

And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone


These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase


[Chorus:]
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me


You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus]
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held you hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of meeee
(3x)

    This is a song that means losing someone you loved so much and even though they are gone you can't seem to forget about them no matter how hard you try to. I love this song, but it makes me cry everytime I hear it, because of my ex bf. This song reminds me of my ex boyfriend. He hurt me bad but I just have to let go and move on.

    Think it would be fair to say I relate to what you say - I've lost my father as well - almost 10 years now - and I'm now 29. Although I've never really questioned the cause of his death - but on reflection - it may well have been an act of free will! However, the reason I chose to post this note is because of the stark contrast in perception. When I listen to this song I feel as though my father is trying to meaningfully communicate to me! I swear I'm so sorry for the grief I still cause him - for all the times he found me miserable and alone.
    With all my heart and soul - your presence - I appreciate.

    I don't know, this song is so full of truth - kinda a look at all the things you never realised u'd miss about a person until they aren't there anymore.
    You love so many things about the people you are close to and when they're gone you realise once and for all that the little things were as important if not more so as anything they were there for in your life. And it really hurts to know that they wont be there to do those things withyou or for you anymore.
    In loving memory Of my best friend Ashlea.

    I am about to cry after reading all these sad, sad comments. I feel bad for each and every one of you. Evanescence's 'Haunted' is similar to this song. It's like someone's ghost is still with her. I love Evanescance's songs because they're my only way to escape from the world. All types of music are actually. But these songs. They're. Special. It's like a brief description of my life. My life is dying in a way. It's really hard to explain. Anyways, my condolences go to you guys, your loved ones, and the one who passed away. I hope you get over your lose as soon as you can. Stressing about things like that (and blaming yourselves for them) aren't good for you (mentally and physically). If you keep worrying about it, you'll be too busy worrying than doing anything else. I don't mean to boss you around or anything but still. Don't stress yourselves. At least that person is in a better place now.

    When I read some comments and heard the song, I felt how unlucky and lucky some of us are. Evanecense's voice captures all the emotion you can find in a song like this. I feel sorry for all those people who have lost anything precious like a good friend or a family member. I know how it feels because my mum's dad died and I didn't want to take it in at all. He died bfore I was born which made me want to lock myself and cry. Evanecense, hang in there and don't give up your job and continue spreading you soothing voice to the world.
