"Memories" as written by Sharon J. Den Adel, Martinus J. E. Martijn Spierenburg and Robert Westerholt....
In this world you tried
Not leaving me alone behind.
There's no other way.
I prayed to the gods let him stay.
The memories ease the pain inside,
Now I know why.

All of my memories keep you near.
In silent moments imagine you here.
All of my memories keep you near.
Your silent whispers, silent tears.

Made me promise I'd try
To find my way back in this life.
I hope there is a way
To give me a sign you're OK.
Reminds me again it's worth it all
So I can go on.

All of my memories keep you near.
In silent moments imagine you here.
All of my memories keep you near.
Your silent whispers, silent tears.

Together in all these memories
I see your smile.
All the memories I hold dear.
Darling, you know I will love you
'Til the end of time.

All of my memories keep you near.
In silent moments imagine you here.
All of my memories keep you near.
Your silent whispers, silent tears.

All of my memories

    General Commenti think its about being away from someone you love dearly, but had not choice but to let them go.

    General Commenti agree. it's definately about the death of a close friend or family member, perhaps a boyfriend. I don 't know if anyone heard this or if I'm insane but did you hear her whisper 'Henry' at the beginning? Anyway I love this song :)

    General CommentMay not be about someone who died.The pain of being apart from someone you love when they're still alive is pretty gut-wrenching

    General CommentGoing by the music video... it's a woman remembering her lover from her youth, who is long dead or gone, yet still lives on in her memories.

    General CommentNot to be rude but anyone who thinks they sound like Evanescence must be tone deaf.Sharon and Amy have totally different vocals,with Sharon having a broader range,or at least showing that she does.

    General CommentWhy, oh why do WT/Evanescence/Lacuna Coil/Nightwish etc get compared all the time?

    They're all so different... the only thing they have in common is female singers. Everything else is different!

    I like WT/Nightiwsh/Lacuna Coil... but Evanescence? They're awful.

    General CommentNow now reprecussion, Within Temptation are the Beatles compared to Evanescence. Though I like Evanescences guitaring better. Believe it or not, they can play metallic better then Within Temptation.

    General CommentSome of these lyrics seem wrong :-S

    "All of my memories keep you near
    In silent memories imagine you here"

    shouldn't it be

    "All of my memories keep you near
    Inside of my mind, imagine you here"

    There are few other bits that are wrong, but that's just me being obsessive.
