live.ie"- Sam, Cork, IrelandAlex from Taranto, Italyin my opinion true Gothic style absolutely needs(and deserves) both male and female voices.Bring me to life is the only REAL gothic tuy vậy by evanescence,all the rest is just commercial music i quite liked,but didn"t went that crazy about them.I"d like listening lớn another male/female voice tuy nhiên by Evanescence.Broken was great too,but not dark & gothic as id" wishJennifer from Chicago, IlI have to lớn say, this is one of the greatest songs ever. I remember seeing it on tv & hearing it on the radio when I was little & I"m glad I finally found it!Joanna from Scotland, United KingdomI am so sick of Twilight being brought up in Evanescence topics!Amy Lee và her band are amazing, and they did not write their great music to be raped by Twilight!Jd from Paoli, Ini dont think is a christian band HOWEVER this tuy vậy does have a lot of spiraitual meaning. "how can you see inside my eyes like open doors" it is indeed one of evanescence best ones.Cynthia from Oregon, Orthis is one of the most amazing christian bands ever and i am not christian but i love itMichelle Rigby from Orem, UtI personally think songs just mean whatever you want them khổng lồ mean. They speak khổng lồ us each in a different, unique way. The artist wrote them for their personal expression of their feelings, thoughts, beliefs, or experiences. But it doesn"t have lớn mean the same thing for us. It might touch a different experience, or part of us than the artist originally wrote it for.Caitlin from Colmesneil, TxI actually have a friend who sang a cover of this tuy nhiên at church. I don"t think Evanescence are a Christian band, they just put that type of symbolism in their songs lượt thích metaphors. I believe in God, so I wouldn"t be offended by it anyway. I think it"s just an awesome tuy nhiên that, lượt thích so many of Evanescence"s songs, can be interpretted so many different ways. So what if one of those interpretations is a religious connotation, doesn"t bother me.K from Seattle, WaUmm, I kinda thought this song was an "homage" khổng lồ the movie "The Neverending Story", "Save me" "Call my name" "Save me from the Nothing" "Save me before I come undone" "bring me to life"I"m just saying.....Frankie from Cardiff, United KingdomNot a huge fan of twilight, but it does fit how Jacob "woke her up inside" and saved her from becoming that "zombie." I think that the object of the tuy nhiên is a human being, not God, but that human made Amy remember the piece of the divine in her.Liberty from Somewhere, InI luv this song...it would be perfect for New Moon. So would a lot of their other songs. (Sorry about that, if you hate Twilight.)Bhavin from Bangalore, IndiaIf u have read George Bernard Shaw"s My Fair Lady... Based on Pygmalion and Galatia , then you will surely understand the meaning of the song...Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, Mievanscence is a christian Band? I didn"t know that! I can"t understand the video! What did Jesus Christ give me? Brains? Cleaverness,Grace,Style,No. I"m retartded I"m fat,ugly và dumpy like his only child mother,like dad says. Lexxus from Nun Of Ur Buisness, TxI understand that Amy Lee isn"t a christian singer, but some of her songs, including this one, havealot of christian value. My aspiration is to become a singer, & just lượt thích Amy Lee, I don"t want to be boxed in just one genre. Because your limit would be that one genre, và it would be "weird" lớn go outside it. Some of the songs I"ve written, have been based on experiences, while others just come khổng lồ my heart. Evanescence isn"t ashamed to điện thoại tư vấn themselves christians, they just don"t want their music lớn be ALLLL about Jesus. I am a strong christian, but I DON"T want to write just about God or Jesus.Cole from Atlanta, GaBring me lớn life sound like a very christian song to me. I am a total Jesus Freak. Wake me up! I Can"t wake up! Save me! I think those words are said as if the writer was speaking to God.
