What I’m Listening To, part 10


The way these posts work is, I’m going to post the lyrics with my thoughts in between the lines like this.


Evanescence – Bring Me To Life (Synthesis)

How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down, into my core
Where I’ve become so numb, without a soul
My spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there, and lead it, back, home


It sits there, in the dark, in the deep dark, all alone.  Then, suddenly, a crack in the darkness.  A beam of light, an ethereal figure emerges, sweeping away the dreary darkness.  Things once again take shape and have meaning.  I am whole again and the world makes sense.  I feel the pulse of life and I feel the warmth of love.


Wake me up inside
Wake me up inside
Call my name and save me from the dark
Bid my blood to run
Before I come undone
Save me from the nothing I’ve become


I would rather watch my own blood drain from my body than be miserable like I used to be.  I don’t want to be what I once was.  I want to be better, stronger.  I need this feeling to last, to stay.  I need you.


Now that I know what I’m without
You can’t just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life


Please don’t leave me!  Please don’t leave me here to wither away again…


Wake me up inside
Wake me up inside
Call my name and save me from the dark
Bid my blood to run
Before I come undone
Save me from the nothing I’ve become
Bring me to life
Bring me to life
Frozen inside, without your touch
Without your love, darling
Only you are my life
Among the dead


It’s so cold since you left.  Why did you have to leave me?  Why did you have to go away?  Without you nothing makes sense anymore.  Without you I wonder if I’m even real, or if any of this daily numb ritual is even worth the effort.  You were – and are – the center of my world.


I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything
Don’t let me die here
Bring, me, to, life


Please don’t let me die.


Wake me up inside
Wake me up inside
Call my name and save me from the dark
Bid my blood to run
Before I come undone
Save me from the nothing I’ve become
Bring me to life
Bring me to life
Bring me to life
