Like You Lyrics - Evanescence

Review The Song (34)

Stay low.
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.

Blinding wall between us.
Melt away and leave us alone again.
The 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.

Beautiful.... | Reviewer: S.Marie | 11/5/12

I cry, every time... I lost my baby sister, so tragically. As an older sister with a few little sisters, you can't help but wish to trade places... I'd do anything to get her back and watch her grow old, or have my family back in one piece. <\3 So much passion + pain in this song, it leaves me winded and breathless.

I think you are all missing a key meaning in the song it's almost as if Amy wishes it were her who was in that position this is easily noticed through analysing repetition in key phrases such as "like you"

I feel good enough. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/5/11

Evanescence... really have saved me from bad dreams, from bad feelings. Amy has saved me. Lithium, Like. I like The Open Door album more than Fallen. Amy really express herself in the The open door. It really free my soul and I feel good. Thanks Amy. I love you.

greif never goes away but it heals very slowly | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/20/10

i really like this song cauz i can relate to it my grandfather died of lung cancer on the 13 of december at 72 i cry when i hear songs like like you,hello and my imortel amy projeted her feelings of her sisters death so well but i reckon her sis wouldnt want her to be dead like her shed want her to live her life and someday they will be together again i know my grandfather wouldnt want me to hurt myself so i can be with him be strong amy and those who hve sufferd a death of someone who u loved grief never goes away but it will heal and so will ur heart

Great song, sis! | Reviewer: ruka-chan | 5/21/10

This song really sad. The saddest part is "I long to be like you, sis. Lie cold in the ground like you did...". Although she's brutal (I mean her genre), she do remember her family, and I love that. No one has those characteristic like Amy. Amy, like Malay said, TABIK SPRING!!!

...This song... | Reviewer: Caleb Martin | 5/12/10

I love this song...I feel like I can relate to it. Except It wasn't my sister that died. I miss my Pops. Listening to this song makes me feel like I'm not alone. I love all of Amy's music! Every single last one of them. Some make me cry, others just remind of how life is...

I long to be like you... | Reviewer: Cotita | 4/8/10

I cannot tell you how much i love this song. In my opinion it is one of the (maybe THE) saddest, passionate, most beautiful songs ever written.

Amy is one of the best writers there have been in the world- and in this song expecially- you can hear in the lyrics how this came straight from her heart. Also the lines like "im not grieving for you" make it unpredictable- but you totally get what shes trying to say.

Even people who aren't large fans of Evanescence would have agree with me on a certain level- it's beautiful.

Listening to this song sends me to a whole other world... wow.

may thoughts be with u Amy Lee | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/9/09

'i long to be like you sis. lie cold in the ground like you did. there's room inside for two, and im not grieving for you, im coming for you'

this song is amazing, and yet its sooooo sad as well. Its about Amy Lee's sis who died of an unknown illness, and when i herd about it, i went straight to youtube to hear this song and its so touching, it made me cry.

Hello and Bleed are also amazing.

Amy, if you read this, i just want u to know that u are an amazing person with so much talent to make this song and so many others.

my thoughts are with you with ur loss.

i hope that you make another Evanescence CD because u and the band rock :)

sis | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/16/09

this song always makes me cry. i have a sister that i love so much. she isn't dead, but i cant imagine her being dead. and every time i here this song i think of her, and what i would do if she died.

Quite negative | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/21/09

I love this song, but the way i hear it it seems her sister's presence has become a negative entity, Like the years of mourning have worn her down and she doesn't want to go on anymore. It's a beautiful song and i love the honesty.. "don't want to feel anymore for you" "Im not greiving for you" I might be totally misunderstanding it but thats what it seems like to me :)

Haunting | Reviewer: Like you... | 2/11/09

This song gave me shivers. But not in a bad way. Evanescence is amazing. But thats not my point. This song haunts me everyday, and it gives me chills when I hear the line, "...And I'm not greiving for you...I'm coming for you." at the end. I can't discribe what that means to me. It reminds me of myself.

Description | Reviewer: Suzie | 12/30/08

Amy Lee did suffer alot, and all her songs are mostly depressing, but i love them; i knew theyre had to be a reason for such songs

her sister, Bonnie lee died at age 3, during school.
amy lee was only 6 years old, she was first to know
and if you heard the song, "hello"
its talking about it;
Bonnie Lee died from an unknown illness.

She crys everytime she sing "Hello" and "like you" it, thats why she wont sing it live.

Just to let yall know

Amy Lee; Be Strong
