The words have been drained from this pencil
Sweet words that I want to give you
And I can't sleep
I need to tell you
Goodnight

When we're together, I feel perfect
When I'm pulled away from you, I fall apart
All you say is sacred to me
Your eyes are so blue
I can't look away
As we lay in the stillness
You whisper to me

Amy, marry me
Promise you'll stay with me
Oh you don't have to ask me
You know you're all that I live for
You know I'd die just to hold you
Stay with you
Somehow I'll show you
That you are my night sky
I've always been right behind you
Now I'll always be right beside you

So many nights I cried myself to sleep
Now that you love me, I love myself
I never thought I would say this
I never thought there'd be
You

    General CommentFirst of all, this song is called 'You', not 'Marry Me.'

    Second, this is not a song by Evanescence. This is a solo performed by Amy Lee and it is not affiliated with the band Evanescence in any way.

    Third, this song was not intended to be released. It was leaked to the Internet against Amy Lee's wishes. Amy has requested that fans not download or listen to this song.

    So, I think this song should be removed.

    General CommentOk, first, please try to understand me because the english isn't my maternal language, so it's too hard for me writte... but well, let`s try...
    I didn't know that this song was in the internet without the amy's permission... but my cuestion is: who could do it???? I think was a person really close to her, if he/she can stole the song and all that...
    second, I don't listen the song yet, and I think I would never do it... but the lyrics doesn't sound like if she wrote it.... I don't know, it isn't her style, but I can't give my opinion...
    And I'm agree with all of you, she have to be respected, and we have to stop the abuse against her privacy and her wishes....
    Don't download this piece of art please...
    If you are a really fan of evanescence and amy, you'll understand...
    Thanks! ^^
