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

    General CommentThis is a stunning example of Amy Lee's solo work. Her recital of this piece captures the emotion felt by Sally more accurately in my opinion than the recital by Catherine O'Hara as heard in the original Nightmare Before Christmas.

    Amy's voice is more somber and minor-toned, which gives it this Burton quality that captures the emotion better.

    General CommentAmy Lee, Evanescence, same thing. Tim will be with her monday on Leno.

    This is my favorite movie ever. And for her to be singing Sally's Song is just awesome. She sings this song so beautifully. I am amazed with each new song that comes out. Her voice is breath taking and I'm glad they chose her. No one else could make this song sound as beautiful as she did.
