Evanescence Restless Lyrics

Last updated: 12/19/2010 10:00:00 AM

She embraced
With a smile
As she opened the door
A cold wind blows
It puts a chill
Into my heart

You have taken away the trust
You're the ghost haunting through her heart
Past and present are one in her head
You're the ghost haunting through her heart

Take my hand as I wander through
All of my life I gave to you
Take my hand as I wander through
All of my love I gave to you

You have taken away the trust
You're the ghost haunting through her heart
Past and present are one in her head
You're the ghost haunting through her heart

Lai lai lai la lai lai lai la lai lai lai lai lai la lai lai lai
Lai lai lai la lai
La la la lai
La la la lai

Take my hand as I wander through
All of my life I gave to you
Take my hand as I wander through
All of my love I gave to you

Lai la la
Lai la la
Lai lai lai

Lai la la
Lai la la
Lai lai lai

Good Lord | Reviewer: QueenofHearts | 12/19/10

Okay, a million people have said this already, but I will say it again- this is not an Evanescence song. It was written by Within Temptation, recorded by Within Temptation, and released by Within Temptation on their first album titled Enter. This mistake would make sense if Evanescence had covered it before, but they haven't.



This is WT! | Reviewer: Hayley | 9/17/10

This is undoubtedly Within Temptation; for one thing Sharon has a very distinctive voice, and I'm a huge fan. Therefore, I can tell you that this is only WT's song. I can't see Amy performing it live or studio; she's a mezzo-soprano, while Sharon's a soprano.



You guys are funny... | Reviewer: sick.with.shame@hotmail.com | 8/15/08

...and remind me of this one time before one of the many Evanescence concerts I've been to, in one of the line-ups. There was this quirky, very unusual guy standing behind me.

He was trying to talk to me the entire time and said, "What's your favourite Evanescence song?"

I was like, "God, where do I start..."

He goes, "I think my favourite song is Angel Of Mine!"

I started pissing myself laughing and went, "Uh, hate to break it to ya, but that song isn't by Evanescence. It's by a singer named Amanda Somerville, often mistaken for one of their songs..."

He goes, "Oh, really?!" and looks totally deflated. Then he's like, "Well...I do like their song Restless, too...that's an Evanescence song..."

And I'm like, now actually trying to stifle my laughter, "Oh, dude, I hate to break that to ya either, but...that song also isn't by Evanescence! It's by Within Temptation!"

He looks totally fucking surprised, and I'm like, "Haha, you in line for the right band, here?" And he didn't look too happy, I really think he thought those were Ev songs and was not fucking around with me by saying he thought they were. Then he finally said that he liked My Immortal, and I just laughed fakely and rolled my eyes. What a chump. :)

With all due respect, yaz, yes it's important that the right person gets the credit. In the final analysis, that's all the artist (in this case the composer) has to justify their being a spokesman of their time. Yes, it's WT. Amy Lee is good, but not that good.
A special note for anonymous... do your homework. I have most of Evanescence's LPs & EPs, & I cant find "Restless" on any of them. So... unless you have access to a live version that I haven't heard of yet, I'll continue to believe it's WT. If you feel that it's "E", please post the link & I'll let you know which album I think the song is from.
Respectfully,
pHg

Re: Yaz | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/8/08

You'd care if the My Immortal lyrics popped up in the WT section and everyone believed it. So don't be a hypocrite.
This is so obviously Sharon den Adel's voice...you can tell by the purity and clarity of the notes, and the keyboard work is cleary WT too. Someone allows these comments to be posted, why can't that same person remove the lyrics from this section?



Um...eh, I didn't feel like putting a title | Reviewer: blahdy blahdy balh | 2/9/08

OMG!!! This song is so obviously Within Temptation its not even fucking funny!!! I have been a hardcore Evanescence fan before they even became popular. Amy Lee's(My idol's)voice is not this pitch and strained it is more angelic and pure. This is on the track one of the Alubum Enter by Within Tempation people!!!!!



SHUT THE FUCK UP, YOU FUCKING IDIOTS | Reviewer: yaz | 2/3/08

wtf, dudes? i wanted a review, not this shit! ok, great, you like the song. and you want the right person to get credit. but really, does it matter if it's listed under the wrong name or not? i mean, the only reason it would really matter is if you wanted to buy it, and then it would definitely show the right name since they have to get the proceeds. so shut the fuck up about it! this is the stupidest argument. stop taking people's time with your idiocy. you guys just fucking litter the earth with your dumbass shit.



Restless | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/10/07

This song was never performed by Evanescence EVER. It is purely a Within Temptation song, so get your facts right. This song was written before Evanescence had even FORMED. Its about time people stopped attributing Within Temptation songs to Evanescence!



holy shit!!! | Reviewer: jolene | 11/16/07

I heard this song and I was thinking what the fuck this is not amy lee singing this...so I did research and found this sight thank god!!! I was soo confused.
