"Bring Me To Life" as written by Amy Lee, Ben Moody and David Hodges....
How can you see into my eyes, like open doors
Leading 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 this time, 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 thousand 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 wrong, 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)
Bring me to life

    General Commentsorry if i'm wrong, guys. since nobody can REALLY know what the meaning of the song is unless you're the one who wrote it O,o .... yeah so none of us really know, we all have our opinions though. this is mine so... yeahh i hope you like it.

    "How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
    Leading you down into my core
    Where I've become so numb"
    this is her saying how someone she knows can see the real her so easily,
    can see her deepest feelings so well, the person can see her very core,
    which is where ones deepest feelings are, the ones that control
    your life, except this is where she's become numb, like she can
    almost not feel anymore, like in depression she doesn't feel
    joy anymore, no exitement, nothing. only sadness.

    "Without a soul
    My spirit's sleeping somewhere cold
    Until you find it there and lead it back home"
    this is her saying that she feels like she has no soul anymore
    cuz it seems that her spirit just fel asleep and leaves
    her lost with nothing but coldness. but this person seeems
    to find her soul where it is and brings it back to her
    so she can feel right again.


    "Wake me up inside
    Wake me up inside
    Call my name and save me from the dark"
    she's telling the person to wake her up from this sleep
    that her spirit's in. to wake her up from the darkness and
    sadness that she's been in lately.

    "Bid my blood to run
    Before I come undone
    Save me from the nothing I've become
    Bring me to life"
    she needs this person to save her and love her before she
    completely breaks down (some form of suicidal thingy)
    she needs the person to save her from what she's become.
    which is her being kinda oblivious to the world (numb)
    so all in all she wants the person to bring her to life.

    "Now that I know what I'm without
    You can't just leave me"
    now she sees that what she needed to help her be happy is this
    person. now she knows what she's been living without so she's
    saying that this person can't just leave her alone now that
    she's happy finally.

    "Breathe into me and make me real
    Bring me to life"
    she wants this person to kinda... how do i put this... breath
    into her as in show her how to be herself again, kind of breath
    the energy back into her and help her live again.

    "Frozen inside without your touch
    Without your love - darling
    Only you are the life among the dead"
    this is her when she's not with the person, she goes
    back to being numb again, kinda frozen inside. like she's
    so cold, she stops living. she's frozen in time a little.
    and only this person is the happiness in all her sadness.


    yeah... at least that's what i got out of it. so all in all she's feelingg depressed. she doesn't know what's come over her, but this person seems to be the only one who can make her happy again. i'm sure plenty of us can relate ;)
