Hey! I'm an Evanescence fan! I love this song esp. the part where she says: "I'm numb to you/numb and deaf and blind/you give me all but the reason why/I reach but I feel only air at night/not you, not love, just nothing"
I'm really inspired by her music so I wrote this poem. I hope you like it!

Farther away:
I am lost, miserable and alone
In the dark, where no light shows.
They do not grieve for me nor do they cry
I do not know the reason why.
Perhaps it is because I do not exist,
Or perhaps they cannot see me in this dark abyss.
I have been this way for some time,
Taken from a world that had become a lie.
Suddenly I hear a voice in my ear,
Deep, hollow and dark but speaks clear.
The voice that draws from my spirit’s well
Like an angel soaring over the flames of hell.
It must have come the light of which I cannot see
But I know I must find before I no longer breathe.
It told me to follow the path
Where it is not yet bright but no longer black.
It is there where I will be awaken
From the harsh world before I was taken.
This narrow path seemed to stretch thousand miles
But I did not take it like a stubborn child.
When I reached that path
I thought I’d finally be back.
But everything seemed strange
They had all changed.
It was darker than I had remember
Not as bright as winter
Maybe it was me that changed
Maybe I’m the one to blame.
I have been living in the dark for so long
Everything I’ve known has gone.
A world full of sorrow and dismay
So distant, farther away.

Tell me your opinions! insults or compliments, I don't care.

Farther Away is the most amazing song! Its lyrics have so much meaning, and the backround music rocks! Its the perfect combinatoin!                               (I reach, but i feel, only air at night, not you, not love, just nothing)            
                                      Farther Away always seems to cheer me up,and really make me think.It is my favorite song!

well for me the song Farther Away is something special and something that make me wonder about my life in the past and everything wrong what I have done. It reminds me of my parents...i know i was not polite, i remember all the things i said...and cry with this song in my ears.

I did steal their smiles and made them mine.
I always hear this song and think about my past. The lies I have told..the time I have wasted..the promises I have broken. But now, when I listen to this song, I realize that all I have done leads to what I do and what I will do. My current but unofficial occupation? A singer for a rock band I created with my friends. We created it not just for fun, but also as a tribute to Evanescence. It has inspired me to be the opposite of the image the song conjours in my head...Not a back-stabber, not a deprived, broken hearted , virtually dead woman. But a fulfilled, happy and down-to-earth girl who faces challenges, but always manages to get through them and doing so not alone, but with her friends along-side her, coping with her predicaments with her. Thank you Amy Lee and the rest of Evanescence, for making me real.

Every song I've written basically comes from this one. The weirdest thing is that I sound a bit like Amy when I sing my OWN songs. We are one but seperate. I have never realized it until now, reading and comparing her lyrics to mine.

This is one of my favorite Evanescence songs EVER (and i know a LOT of em)!!! Amy's voice brings out so much in this song. My best friend & I agree-Amy is the best!!!!!!!!!

"I took the smiles and I made them mine"- only the best could think of that!
