Evanescence – All that I’m living for lyrics

0 Evanescence   All that Im living for lyricsThis song was written by Amy Hartzler and John LeCompt.

Info from Evanescence Reference :

The song was intended to be the Third single from The Open Door, however after listening to requests by the band and fan reactions to the decision, the label chose Sweet Sacrifice in its place. [1]

From Metal Edge Magazine

The hard rocking All That Im Living For focuses on the band itself. Its genesis came from a realization Lee had one day that her band was her life. I dont do anything else, she says. Im writing for the band, touring for the band, doing an interview about the band, or thinking about the next thing I want to write. Its my life, and I love it, but its a love/hate relationship.

From VH1.com [1]

Amy’s description of the song: “I love that song. It feels really different for us. The lyrics are about my writing process-how I put the song together, why I do it, and how I’m trying to fix all the things that are wrong with me through music. The first line says, “Save me from the night again/ I can feel the separation from the living.”[1] It’s always night time when I start writing, just as the dusk is setting.”

Lyrics :

All that I’m living for
All that I’m dying for
All that I can’t ignore alone at night

I can feel the night beginning
Separate me from the living
Understanding me
After all I’ve seen
Piecing every thought together
Find the words to make me better
If I only knew how to pull myself apart

All that I’m living for
All that I’m dying for
All that I can’t ignore alone at night
All that I’m wanted for
Although I wanted more
Lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

I believe that dreams are sacred
Take my darkest fears and play them
Like a lullaby
Like a reason why
Like a play of my obsessions
Make me understand the lesson
So I’ll find myself
So I won’t be lost again

All that I’m living for
All that I’m dying for
All that I can’t ignore alone at night
All that I’m wanted for
Although I wanted more
Lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

Guess I thought I’d have to change the world
To make you see me
To be the one
I could have run forever
But how far would I have come
Without mourning your love?

All that I’m living for
All that I’m dying for
All that I can’t ignore alone at night
All that I’m wanted for
Although I wanted more
Lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

Should it hurt to love you?
Should I feel like I do?
Should I lock the last open door
My ghosts are gaining on me

I do not own any audio.
