Evanescence – Sally's Song lyrics

I sense there's something in the wind
That feels like tragedy's at hand
And though I'd like to stand by him
Can't shake this feeling that I have
The worst is just around the bend

And does he notice my feelings for him?
And will he see how much he means to me?
I think it's not to be

What will become of my dear friend
Where will his actions lead us then?
Although I'd like to join the crowd
In their enthusiastic cloud
Try as I may, it doesn't last

And will we ever end up together?

And will we ever end up together?
No, I think not, it's never to become
For I am not the one

    Sally's song to me is about a deep and passionate love that is one-sided. The girl sees the guy and finds herself drawn to him, no knowing exactly why. There's something special about him, something in his eyes and just the escence of his being that captivates her so deeply. She notices him but he hardly notices her and she is too shy and ashamed to ever approach him. She's running from her demons and only wishes that someone can help her defeat them, though she knows she hasn't the strength to do it on her on. As time progresses, she finds herself falling madly for this guy who refuses to notice that she's there, waiting for him, ready to love him more than anyone else could ever promise. She only wishes he could see her the way she sees him, but has become convinced that it is only a dream and that it would never be a reality. She does not feel worthy enough to be his heart and convinces herself that it is in fact true, they will never be together, they will never be one.

    It seems as she was infatuated by his charm, she does not know how to explain her love for him. Afraid that she might be or feel rejected. But she continues to stand by his side. Because her love for jack is strong no matter if he feels the same or not. If you feel or even felt like sally sometimes, and are to shy to express your feeling to your 'jack' of how you feel. Be strong and wait till the right time comes. Because that's what sally seem to do at the end, she waited until he felt the love for her as well. No matter what happened. Because that's what I did when I was in love with my crush. I waited until the right moment had came.
