Sparkling grey
Through my own veins

Any more than a whisper
Any sudden movement of my heart
And I know
I know I'll have to watch them pass away

Just get through this day

Give up your way
You could be anything
Give up my way
And lose myself

Not today
That's too much guilt to pay

Sickened in the sun
You dare tell me you love me
But you held me down and screamed you wanted me to die
Honey you know
You know I'd never hurt you that way

You're just so pretty in your pain

Give up my way
And I could be anything
I'll make my own way
Without your senseless

So run
And hate me
If it feels good
I can't hear your screams anymore

You lied to me
But I'm older now
And I'm not buying baby

Demanding my response
Don't bother breaking the door down
I found my way out

And you'll never hurt me again

    it's about a girl who loved someone, but did nothing but hurt her, hate her, and lie to her. but the girl remained strong. and the title of the song says it all. it's her last song for him caz she's moving on, and would never let him hurt her again.

    This song to me means that she loved a guy, but he didn't love her back, but she was young and naiive, so she didn't realizeit. He hurt her and made her feel worthless, and she's had enough. And ow that she's older, she knows that she deserves better and that there is better. And she'll never go back to him.
    Amy lee, all of your songs explain me. Thank you so,.. So for giving me a voice.

    i really really like this song aside fro the fact that i love the band behind it... i could relate to most of amy's songs.

    huhu... but actually listening to her songs gives me courage to move on and to be as strong as her since she could still fight even if she had experienced heartaches...

    i love her songs as well as her band... more power...
