Various Artists – My Immortal - Evanescence lyrics

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
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


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

    Every time I hear this song it breaks my heart over and over again, I think of my daughter and how I lost her at the age of 22. It is bitter sweet because I think of how I held her close to me and how I will never be able to do it again, how I cannot live without her she lives inside of me and I cannot let her go. The words touch the center of my soul. My miss my krystal so much, love you baby.
