Evanescence

We're leaving here tonight
There's no need to tell anyone
They'd only hold us down
So by the morning light
We'll be half way to anywhere

I hide behind a smile as this perfect plan unfolds

I've been looking in the mirror for so long.
That I've come to believe my souls on the other side.
Oh the little pieces falling, shatter.
Shards of me,
To sharp to put back together.
To small to matter,
But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces.
If I try to touch her,
And I bleed,
I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe no more.

Seems so far
That i have gone down this road
Only to find that it ends
But lookin' back
There is one thing that I know
I can't make it all alone again

I took their smiles and I made them mine.

I want to go back to
Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all

I still remember the sun
Always warm on my back
Somehow it seems colder now

hello i'm your mind giving you someone to talk to
if i smile and don't believe
soon i know i'll wake from this dream
don't try to fix me i'm not broken
hello i'm the lie living for you so you can hide
don't cry

Please, please forgive me,
But I won't be home again.
Maybe someday you'll have woke up,
And, barely conscious, you'll say to no one:
"Isn't something missing?"

You won't cry for my absence, I know -
You forgot me long ago.
Am I that unimportant...?
Am I so insignificant...?
Isn't something missing?
Isn't someone missing me?

let me stay
where the wind will whisper to me
where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story

in my field of paper flowers
and candy clouds of lullaby
i lie inside myself for hours
and watch my purple sky fly over me

don't say i'm out of touch
with this rampant chaos - your reality
i know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
the nightmare i built my own world to escape

God, I feel like hell tonight
Tears of rage I cannot fight
I'd be the last to help you understand
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Nothing's true and nothing's right
So let me be alone tonight
Cause you can't change the way I am
Are you strong enough to be my man?

You hold the answer deep within your own mind. Consciously you've forgotten it. That's the way the human mind words. Whenver something is too unpleasant, too shameful for us to entertain we reject it, we erase it from our memory, but the imprint is always there.

Youíre too important for anyone
thereís something wrong with everything you see
but I, I know who you really are
youíre the one who cries when youíre alone

chorus
But where will you go
with no one left to save you from yourself
you canít escape
you canít escape

You think that I canít see right through your eyes
scared to death to face reality
no one seems to hear your hidden cries
youíre left to face yourself alone

chorus

I realize youíre afraid
but you canít abandon everyone
you canít escape
you donít want to escape

Iím so sick of speaking words that no one understands
is it clear enough that you canít live your whole life all alone
I can hear you in a whisper
but you canít even hear me screaming

chorus

I realize youíre afraid
but you canít reject the whole world
you canít escape
you wonít escape
you canít escape
you donít want to escape

Catch me as I fall
Say you're here and it's all over now
Speaking to the atmosphere
No one's here and I fall into myself
This truth drive me
Into madness
I know I can stop the pain
If I will it all away

Don't turn away
(Don't give in to the pain)
Don't try to hide
(Though they're screaming your name)
Don't close your eyes
(God knows what lies behind them)
Don't turn out the light
(Never sleep never die)

I'm frightened by what I see
But somehow I know
That there's much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be
Blinded by tears
I can stop the pain
If I will it all away

Why not
Take a crazy chance
Why not
Do a crazy dance
If you lose a moment
You might lose a lot
So why not
Why not

You always dress in yellow
When you wanna dress in gold
Instead of listening to your heart
You do just what youíre told
You keep waiting where you are
What youíll never know
Letís just get into your car
And go baby go
