Evanescence – Understanding

You hold the answer deep within your own mind
Consciously you’ve forgotten it
That’s the way the human mind works
Whenever something is too unpleasant, too shameful for us to entertain
We reject it
We erase it from our memory
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
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
For I’ve tried to fight the truth, my final time

We’re supposed to try to be real
And when you feel alone, you’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

Can’t wash it all away
Can’t wish it all away
Can’t throw 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
Move it all away
Move it all away

But the imprint is always there
Nothing is ever really forgotten

God, just don’t hate me
Because I’ll die if you do
