Evanescence – My Last Breath lyrics

Hold on to me love.
You know I can't stay long.
All I wanted to say was I love you, and I'm not afraid.
Can you hear me?
Can you feel me in your arms?

(Chorus)
Holding my last breath.
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you.
Sweet raptured light.
It ends here tonight.

I'll miss the winter.
A world of fragile things.
Look for me in the white forest
Hiding in a hollow tree (Come find me)
I know you hear me.
I can taste it in your tears!

(Chorus)
Holding my last breath.
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you.
Sweet raptured light.
It ends here tonight.

Closing your eyes to disappear
You pray your dreams will leave you here,
But still you wake, and know the truth.
No one's there
.

Say goodnight.
Don't be afraid.
Calling me, holding me as you fade to black. (x2)

(Chorus)
Holding my last breath.
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you.
Sweet raptured light.
It ends here tonight.

(Holding my last breath.
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you.
Sweet raptured light.
It ends here tonight.)

(Holding my last breath.)

    I think that this was supposed to dipict a suicide. Shes leaving. On the edge of death and her love is holding her in his arms as the life escapes her. Hes crying as she fades away over her decision. That's how he can "hear" her. For the fact that shes dying and its what she wants. The white forest is death. And very possibly a place she remembers from life that is merely being infused into the world beyond life. >.< idk. That's what I think.

    Yeah, I think it's about a suicide. I believe that the person who's about to die doesn't regret her decision, because she's confident that she and her love will meet again. However, I think that their might be a little doubt about where she'll end up. "Look for me in the white forest, hiding in a hollow tree" might mean that she's hiding somewhere, so that she won't be taken away before she makes good on her promise that they'll meet again. Brilliant song, very poetic lyrics.

    If you read the book "I heart you, you haunt me" by Lisa Schroeder, it brings a whole new understanding to this song. In the story this girl looses her boyfriend who had made a promise to always stay with her and he ends up being a ghost, and he plays this song during the book. Very good song though, I really like evanescence, and especially amy lee, she's so amazing.
