This song was never meant to be released. A person connected to the band had access to and made copies of many Evanescence songs, including ones that he was not supposed to have. This song...
Stay alive, soft, dark and dreamless
Far beneath my nightmares and loneliness
I hate me for breathing without you
I don't want to feel anymore for you

Grieving for you, I'm not grieving for you
Nothing real love can't undo
And though I may have lost my way
All paths lead straight to you

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you

Halo blinding wall between us
Melt away and leave us alone again
Humming haunted somewhere out there
I believe our love can see us through in death

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you
I'm coming for you

You're not alone
No matter what they told you
You're not alone
I'll be right beside you forevermore

I long to be like you, sis
Lie cold in the ground like you did
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you

And as we lay in silent bliss
I know you remember me

I long to be like you
Lie cold in the ground like you
There's room inside for two
And I'm not grieving for you
I'm coming for you

    General Comment"What's done is done" Any of that sound familiar to you guys?

    I love Amy Lee and I love Evanescence... But this been going on for maybe three or four years (I'm assuming that, I discovered this song in 2004/2005)

    Nothing been done to fix the situation well enough for us to never hear of this song ever again, so drop it, I understand we have some elite fans commenting over here, but really, stop, you're wasting your time trying to have this song deleted from this page. The song may very well be in over hundreds of millions of people's home computers, office computers, etc. Just stop, what's done is done.


    ANYWAY

    This is a beautiful song. I didn't know it was a leaked song untiil last year, but I couldn't bring myself to deleting this song, it's too precious, too meaningful, too beautiful. Thank goodness this song didn't go as far as being leaked onto the radio, such a beautiful song would be destroyed by being played out.

    I want to see more work like this coming from Amy, she always wrote such deep lyrics, but these lyrics touched me the most!

    General CommentI have no idea behind the story to this song other then what I have read above, but the simple fact is that if a song is that personal and that sacred to an individual (speaking as a songwriter myself) those are the songs that should be given away. I have no idea why somebody would want to keep a song like this to themselves.

    I can totally understand not wanting to release it on an album, some songs are just special and deserve to have their own special place and that goes beyond singles and anything the music industry might try to throw at you. THIS IS ART....and also recorded digital music..

    MemoryAs my name is Amy, I feel like it's *me* when I listen to it. This is one of the songs that my boyfriend and I treasure very dearly; I think of us every time I listen to it. I'm not even much of an Evanescence fan, but this song holds an incredible amount of meaning for me. I understand why Amy Lee wouldn't want it released, but....

    General CommentBitching about it is not going to get it deleted, and if it does, it will be back up within a few months. It's been leaked, nothing can change that, and there will always be a copy of it somewhere. I have a copy, many, many others have a copy. If Amy Lee really cares anymore, which is highly doubtful by now, she will take some kind of legal action against the people posting the lyrics and downloading it. And until that day comes, I will play this song, cranked at max with my windows down going down the highway so that everyone in my city can hear it, and when that day of artistic death comes, then I will get rid of it. If you have any respect for a piece of art, you will leave it up. So, to the people bitching, quit acting like you're Amy Lee's personal police and deal with it.

    General CommentThis song is so astoundingly beautiful. I've never connected to a piece of music like I do to this one. It's too bad that it was released when she didn't want it to be, but it happened, and I for one feel blessed that it did.

    General CommentI wished I had this song...It's just so pretty! I actually kinda cried. It's pretty romantic and shows true unconditional love more than any other song in the world. Too bad there's so much drama about it.

    General Commentshe did NOT want the song released or anything about it even posted. This was a very personal song for her.

    this needs to be deleted. Just out of respect.

    General CommentI understand that thisong is very personal to Amy, and I respect that. But it's so beautful (I have it on a cd a friend burned me... sorry, I didn't know then). Does anyone actually know who this is about? I thought maybe her husband at first but I have a feeling she wrote it before him?
