How can you see into my eyes
Like open doors?
Lading 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.

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside.
(I can't wake up)
Wake me up inside.
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark.
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run.
(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone.
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become.

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.

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside.
(I can't wake up)
Wake me up inside.
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark.
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run.
(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone.
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become.

Bring me to life.
(I've been living a lie.
There's nothing inside)
Bring me to life.

Frozen inside without your touch,
Without your love, darling.
Only you are the life among the dead.

(All of this sight,
I can't believe I couldn't see
Kept in the dark
but you were there in front of me)
I've been sleeping a 1000 years it seems.
I've got to open my eyes to everything.
(Without a thought
Without a voice
Without a soul
Don't let me die here.
There must be something more).
Bring me to life.

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside.
(I can't wake up)
Wake me up inside.
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark.
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run.
(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone.
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become.

Bring me to life.
(I've been living a lie. There's nothing inside)
Bring me to life

    General CommentPlease get the facts right. Like everyone says, it's 'Bring Me To Life" not "Wake Me Up Inside'
    C'mon, really? Why would it be called that - just because it's the first line in the chorus does not define it to be the song title.
    Such mistakes should be erased from the site and made right.

    General CommentYou'd think that after five years, people would know what the song's called.

    General CommentI know, huh. Just because she says, "Wake me up inside" in the chorus doesn't mean that's its title. Good grief.

    General CommentSongs pretty self explanatary,it's about the singers deep depression she is in,she has lost all interest in everything and is in a ''numb...cold...dark'' mental state.But has met this man/woman who finally understands her and she is deeply in love with him/her and wants him/her to return the love ''call my name and save me from the dark''so she can start to live again,otherwise there will never be hope of her being happy again.
