You don't remember me,
But I remember you.
I lie awake, and try so hard
Not to think of you,
But who can decide what they dream?
And dream I do...

(Chorus)
I believe in you.
I'll give up everything just to find you.
I have to be with you to live, to breathe.
You're taking over me.

Have you forgotten all I know,
And all we had?
You saw me mourning my love for you,
And touched my hand.
I knew you loved me then.

(Chorus x2)
I believe in you.
I'll give up everything just to find you.
I have to be with you to live, to breathe.
You're taking over me.

I look in the mirror, and see your face.
If I look deep enough,
So many things that are
Just like you; Are taking over.

    It's consumption. She had deep feelings for this person and made him her life and every thought and now he has left her alone and she doesn't know how to live life without having her everythought revole around him. Everything about her has been consumed by this one person.

    I think the meaning of this song is: a guy just broke up with his girlfriend and she can't stop thinking of him. She tries to stop thinking about him but she can't and ecerytime she does think of him she's in pain and she cryes every time. THIS SONG MAKES ME CRY EVERYTIME I LISTEN TO IT!!! I LOVE EVANESCENCE!!! They are so inspirational ! Amy Lee Rules!!!
