Understanding Lyrics - Evanescence

Review The Song (13)

"You hold the answers deep within your own mind.
Consciously, you've forgotten it.
That's the way the human mind works.
Whenever something is too unpleasant, to shameful for us
to entertain, we reject it.
We erase it from our memories.
But the imprint is always there."

(Can't wash it all away)
(Can't wish it all away)
(Can't hope it all away)
(Can't cry it all away)

The pain that grips you
The fear that binds you
Releases life in me
In our mutual
Shame we hide our eyes
sponsored links
To blind them from the truth
That finds a way from who we are
Please don't be afraid
When the darkness fades away
The dawn will break the silence
Screaming in our hearts
My love for you still grows
This I do for you
Before I try to fight the truth my final time

"We're supposed to try and be real.
And I feel alone, and we're not together. And that is real."

Can't wash it all away
Can't wish it all away
Can't cry it all away
Can't scratch it all away

Lying beside you
Listening to you** breathe
The life that flows inside of you
Burns inside of me
Hold and speak to me
Of love without a sound
Tell me you will live through this
And I will die for you
Cast me not away
Say you'll be with me
For I know I cannot
Bear it all alone

"You're not alone, honey."
"Never... Never."

Can't fight it all away
Can't hope it all away
Can't scream it all away
It just won't fade away, no

Can't wash it all away
Can't wish it all away
Can't cry it all away
Can't scratch it all away

(Can't fight it all away)
(Can't hope it all away)
Can't scream it all away
Ooh, it all away
Ooh, it all away
(It all away)

"But the imprint is always there. Nothing is ever really forgotten."
"God***, please don't hate me."
"Because I'll die if you do."
"Because I'll die if you do."
"Because I'll die if you do."
"Because I'll die if you do."
"Because I'll die if you do."

I love this song, it does not make me cry but it does make me think of some scenarios in life and give me the courage to confront them, because as said in the song you can't wash it all away. Everyone who has said this song belongs in the top 10 is wrong. It belong in the top three along with imaginary ad whisper.

Feeling free | Reviewer: shahla | 1/11/09

I wasnt a fan of rock music! But the more I listen to Evanescence and the lyrics of their songs i feel they just make me speechless!I used to listen to imaginary, bring me back to life and BEAUTIFUL lithium since months a go! I fairly recently heared Understanding! It s just amazing! I really love the step by step changes in the song. bit by bit .. Plus the lyrics s so amazing and I just shows a true love, which is not washed a way by time .. It doesnt make me sad or happy. It just makes me calm as i can trust and believe in true and forever feelings. Whenever i listen to Understanding, i feel free from my fears... THANK YOU Evanescence

one of the best songs ever | Reviewer: Dorwin | 7/31/08

I think that Understanding will always be in ranked in the top 10 Evanescence songs ever because it just has so much meaning and depth in it. I love Amy's range and the guy who speaks on it - I don't know his name - he sounds pretty well too.

One of the things that I like most is the speed the song goes through and it just changes from beat to beat.

Thank You, Amy | Reviewer: Nadia | 2/12/08

Whenever I hear this sound I look at a picture of my dearest love. He is gone now, but when I hear this Evanescence song he returns to me. Its like a dream... I think this song is magical. I can't discribe it. You have to listen to this song. It's so beatuful, I wanna cry all the time.

Just...Wow!! | Reviewer: Heidi J. Miller | 12/29/07

I just heard this song for the first time fairly recently...and just wow. It's so amazing! And it has the most incredible and true meaning to it. It's so true. And I love the guy voice at the beginning and end of it, along with the girl at the end. It just adds on to it. But anyway, the bottom line is...it's M-A-ZING and sooo true. I LOVE YOU EVANESCENCE!! =]
