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
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 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]

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

    This Is Such An Emotional Song And I Agree With Everyone That Says It Reminds Them Of Loss Because I Know It Does For Me. When My Dad Died Of Cancer Last Year This Was The Only SOng I Listened To For Months.

    This is such an emotional and beautiful song. I love amy lee's voice. This is my most favorite song out of any other song ever created. Hands down.

    She had a lover who she cherished for many years, but he was hiding an illness [most likely aids] and now she's haunted by the very memory of him. She wants to never wake up and be with her one love. Tragic :(

    I think the love of her life is in a coma(or gravely ill) and she's in limbo..she knows he needs to pass on but she cant bear the thought of letting him go.

    I am so sorry for you losses c_21lorraine, iHeartGymnastics, and Pandorasbox. You all have my deepest condolences.
    Although my losses aren't as painful as yours, this song makes me think of my boyfriend...we broke up, and I was so in love with him :(
