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

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 life
Now I'm bound by the life you've left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in 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

    Aww this is such a sweet song and it alwats makes me wanna cry. It's full of so much emotion and amy's voice just makes it even more beautiful. This is so much better than that crappy pop music you get these days like rihanna and all that. I love you evanescence!

    It reminds me of my real life. I have a few close loved ones who passed away from this life but do have realistic dreams as if they're still around talking to me about days still yet to come, it truly throws me off sometimes.
