"Your Star" as written by Amy Lee and Terry Balsamo....
I can't see your star, I can't see your star
Though I patiently waited bedside for the death of today
I can't see your star
The mechanical lights of Lisbon frightened it away

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for, we're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out

I can't see your star, I can't see your star
How can the darkness feel so wrong?

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for, we're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out

So far away
It's growing colder without your love
Why can't you feel me calling your name?
Can't break the silence, it's breaking me

All my fears turn to rage

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for, we're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out now

Hey, and nothing worth fighting for
We're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out

    General CommentI absolutly love this song! It is one of my favorites on this album not only because of the beautiful lyrics, besides anything Amy writes is a masterpeice and most defenitly amazing, but its because the music is so dramatic and theatric. My favorite part of the song is when the piano solo. And damn can that woman sing!!! Evanescence forever!

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Terry's stroke. The third line reminds me of the way someone would wait by a hospital bed for someone to wake up.

    General CommentAs much as people say this song is annoying...I think the instrumentalization in it makes up for it.
    Well, it would make sense if this is Terry's favorite song because the guitar's pretty damn good. The music starting from around 2:35. Very Nice.
    Sorry I'm focusing on the music 'stead of the lyrics, but the people here pretty much covered that part of the song.

    General CommentI love this song.

    I was reading the lyrics and, I find it interesting that, in the bridge [I suppose that's what you would call it], Amy Lee sings, "Why can't you feel me calling your name?" The first time I heard it, I thought she said "hear". Question: Why does she say "feel"?

    General CommentI'm kinda glad you said that as I wondered which song Amy wrote by Terry's bedside - it makes sense now!

    "I can't see your star" - meaning that he's going to survive so his star isn't there?

    General CommentI live the line:

    "why can't you feel me calling your name?"

    This song is so nice and this line is especially powerful. Although many of the songs on this album have somewhat specific meanings i think they can still relate to your life in some way.

    btw. this is my favorite song on the album next to Lose Control. Nice Album.

    General Commentactually, she wrote this is Lisbon when she was depressed, because she was having a bad day and then she looked out the window to see the stars but there weren't any there; thus driving her over the edge a little, i guess. it makes more sense with the terry thing. i don't know, it's what i read in an interview.
    either way it's pretty. :)

    General CommentThis song is about Terry's stroke?

    How Amy was there for him, she thought he was going to die, if he did, his life would be like a star in the sky to her. Yet he didnt.
