My Immortal Lyrics - Evanescence

Review The Song (141)

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
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 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

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


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

"My Immortal" is a song by American rock band Evanescence. It was released on December 8, 2003 as the third single from their debut studio album Fallen. The song was entirely written by former guitarist Ben Moody, with the exception of the bridge, which was later added by Amy Lee, and it was produced by Dave Fortman. "My Immortal" was included on their EP releases Evanescence and Mystary and on the demo CD Origin. The version placed on Origin was later included on their first studio album Fallen. The single version of the song was called "band version" because of the additional band performing the bridge and final chorus of the song.

"My Immortal" is a piano rock ballad written in slow and free tempo with 80 beats per minute. Ben Moody was inspired to write it by a previous story that happened to him. Lyrically, it talks about "a spirit staying with you after its death and haunting you until you actually wish that the spirit were gone because it won't leave you alone."[3] Moody later revealed that the song was written for his grandfather Bill Holcomb. Critical reception towards the song were positive with critics complimenting its piano melody. The song became Evanescence's second highest charting single, peaking within the top ten of more than ten countries. It topped the charts in Canada, Greece and Billboard's Adult Pop Songs. The single was certified Gold status by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA).

An accompanying music video directed by David Mould was filmed entirely in black-and-white in Gothic Quarter, Barcelona on October 10, 2003. The video shows Lee sitting and singing on various location, but never touching the ground. Shots of Moody are also shown but he is never together with his band or Lee. The video was nominated in the category for Best Rock Video at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards. In 2005 the band was nominated in the category for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals at the 47th Grammy Awards for "My Immortal". The song was performed by the band during their Fallen Tour and The Open Door Tour. It was also performed live during some of their television appearances and award ceremonies such as the Billboard Music Awards. (From Wikipedia)

a beautiful soul | Reviewer: Annette | 4/29/14

this song reminds me of my friend Stacey who passed away in 1996 t the age of 27. She had been severely disabled since the age of 2 but her smile, love for others, brilliance, and shining spirit illuminated all who knew her. She was a student, I the counselor/advisor, yet we somehow became quick friends. She something in me that I never saw in myself. Depression had surrounded me all my life. I wanted to help others because I was wounded. I wish I could be half the person she was. I will always miss her and still dream of her. Love you Stacey. I hope my soul meets your again one day.

Memories | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/29/13

I am a recent High School grad and my High School Henry Ford II was big on suicide prevention...the district of UCS is that they played a video made by Utica students, that the background music was My Immortal. I have three versions of this song and I always think of that video when I hear this song.

When the whole whole world seem underpopulated | Reviewer: Eliud Kawala | 5/31/13

This is perheps the best sad song that reflects what am going through,after two years of happiness am stuck in a day dream,a bad dream,am new,incomplete and perheps lost in a new land,the loved one become strangers,strangers are strangers and I feel like I never been loved at all,I carry on with the pain in my footsteps,mayb it will all end when am gone.Thank you Evanescene

Just like Moonlight | Reviewer: Mithrim | 1/5/12

This song forever reminds me of the movie Moonlight. In the first episode when the main character, Mick St John (Alex O'Loughlin), saves the human he loves and it brings back a memory of when he saved her when she was four. This song makes this such a beautiful and remarkable scene. For all who haven't, you should see Moonlight!

My Immortal - Evanescence. *My Thought* | Reviewer: Savanna Tomlinson | 12/31/11

I deeply love this song. Its the song to listen to when you feel depressed. Just the lyrics of this song gives me the chills. When I feel horrible, agonizing pain, I listen to this song it brings back the confidence I had once before.
