My Immortal – Evanescence

I’m so tired of being hereMy Immortal Evenesence
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
‘Cause your presence still lingers here

And it won’t leave me alone

These wounds won’t seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot eraseWhen you cried, I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream, I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I’m bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won’t seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream, I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
But though you’re still with me, I’ve been alone all along

When you cried, I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream, I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
You still have all of me, me, me

The loss of a loved one can certainly leave a void in your life.  Suddenly, the smell of blooms in a flower shop will only remind you of funeral flowers, holidays become even sadder, and you could only wish that the pain leaves you soon.  But sometimes, it takes a long time before the pain subsides and you can finally accept things as they are.

The song “My Immortal” by Evanescence explores the emotions you feel when grieving for the loss of a loved one or a close friend.  The song was written by Ben Moody, co-founder of the band Evanescence and it was dedicated to his late grandfather who he was very close with.

The song deals with the difficulty of accepting the loss of a loved one or a very close friend.  Coming in to terms with the reality that tomorrow, you will no longer see him or her, or feel his or her warm presence, can be a little too hard to swallow, especially when the passing is all too sudden and tragic.  It couldn’t be any more fitting to be played during funeral services as it mirrors the sadness felt by those who were left behind.
