Bring Me to Life

The song “Bring Me to Life” by Evanescence as been playing on popular radio stations lately. It has an edgy rock sound, and the lead singer has an incredible voice. But when I read the lyrics (after my previous entry), it gave me goose bumps…

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 sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home

Chorus:
(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

chorus

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
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 more
Bring me to life

chorus

(Bring me to life)
    I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside
(Bring me to life)
