Whenever I wake up
I'm lost and always afraid
It's never the same place
I close my eyes to escape
The walls around me

And I drift away
Inside the silence
Overtakes the Pain
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

Whenever I wake up
The shards of us cut within
Always the same day
Frozen all in the fringe
I surrender to the sleep
And leave the hurt behind me
There's no death to fear
In my dreams

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

So far or right beside me
So close but they can't find me
Slowly, time forgets me
I'm lonely, only dreaming

I feel Immortal
I am not scared
No, I am not scared
I feel immortal
When I am there
When I am there

    Song MeaningI feel that this could have two meanings.

    First, it could be about suffering from depression. There being so much pain and fear in her wake, she "surrenders to the sleep."

    "So far or right beside me
    So close but they can't find me
    Slowly, time forgets me
    I'm lonely, only dreaming"
    When you're depressed, you have low energy and are always sleepy and such. As she sleeps more, her loved ones are out living without her and having fun, while slowly forgetting her. She's lost in her dreamland, but she didn't realize it.

    *cough cough* That interpretation makes no sense...

    It could also be about a person with, let's say, avoidant personality disorder. She's always spending time by herself, daydreaming, in her own little world. When she's with other people, she's anxious and scared. She drifts out of consciousness and spends her sleep in that same world that she's carefully constructed to suit her tastes.

    In her world, she is immortal, so she doesn't have to feel scared.

    General CommentI somewhat agree with Tyrotoxin, although, the part about the avoidant personality disorder, doesn't make much sense in the context of this song.
    I actually believe that, apart from depression, she finds infinite comfort in herself. I don't consider her dreams to be literally dreams, but rather wishes, longings, the things she wants in life, a spark that lights her wick. That's why I've always thought about this song as a self-empowerment epic, and it has such a tone in my opinion. I think it's closely connected to the 'I Walk Alone' theme she has on her albums.
