give me a reason to believe that you're gone
i see your shadow, so i know they're all wrong
moonlight on the soft, brown earth
it leads me to where you lay
they took you away from me
but now i'm taking you home

i will stay forever here with you, my love
the softly spoken words you gave me
even in death our love goes on

some say i'm crazy for my love, oh, my love
but no bonds can hold me from your side, oh, my love
they don't know you can't leave me
they don't hear you singing to me

i will stay forever here with you, my love
the softly spoken words you gave me
even in death our love goes on

and i can't love you any more than i do

i will stay forever here with you, my love
the softly spoken words you gave me
even in death our love goes on

    General CommentWell, I went to a private concert of their and Ben and Amy explained this song. They said it's a made up story about a wife who loved her husband veyr much, but he died suddenly. She's so torn apart by grief that she goes to the graveyard and digs him up and takes him home with her. (That's the first verse.) And then she's happy with him and doesn't see anything wrong with it. Creepy but neat kinda like an Edgar Allen Poe story. Beautiful song, tho. Amy's voice is amazing! I love Evanescence! haha (Never woulda guessed from my user name, would ya?)

    General CommentAlthough the lyrics are a bit twisted, I think this song is amazing. The overall mood is just so beautiful and haunting. It's one of my favorites.

    General CommentI didn't really like this one as much as the rest of the stuff of theirs I've heard tonight. (I've been downloading for a preview) constantly. I want to get the CD. I think it's because I miss GOD in this song. Their IS nothing anti-Christian about writing for an earthly love, I just think their songs focused on God have more emotion. GREAT band nonetheless, recommended for kids of all ages.
