Even in Death
Evanescence Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Give me a reason to believe that you're gone
I see your shadow so I know they're all wrong
Moonlight on the soft brown earth
It leads me to where you lay
They took you away from me but now I'm taking you home

[Chorus]
I will stay forever here with you
My love
The softly spoken words you gave me
Even in death our love goes on

Some say I'm crazy for my love, oh my love
But no bonds can hold me from your side, oh my love
They don't know you can't leave me
They don't hear you singing to me

[Chorus]





And I can't love you, anymore than I do

The singer is seeking a reason to believe that her love is gone and while she sees the shadow, she knows everyone is wrong. She follows the moonlight on the soft brown earth, and it leads her to where her love lay. Even though they took her love away from her, she is bringing him home.


The chorus emphasizes the depth and eternity of the singer's love. She promises to stay forever with her love, and the softly spoken words he gave her still reverberate in her soul. The love between them is so powerful that even in death, it goes on.

Line by Line Meaning

Give me a reason to believe that you're gone
I need something to convince me that you're really gone


I see your shadow so I know they're all wrong
The world may say that you're gone, but I can still see your presence


Moonlight on the soft brown earth
The gentle light of the moon illuminates the ground


It leads me to where you lay
The moonlight guides me to where you are resting


They took you away from me but now I'm taking you home
Someone may have taken you away, but I am bringing you back to where you belong


I will stay forever here with you
I want to be with you forever


My love
My feelings of love for you


The softly spoken words you gave me
I cherish the kind and gentle words you spoke to me


Even in death our love goes on
Our love does not end with death


Some say I'm crazy for my love, oh my love
Others may think my love is foolish or insane, but I know it is true


But no bonds can hold me from your side, oh my love
Nothing can keep me away from you


They don't know you can't leave me
Others may not understand that you will always be with me


They don't hear you singing to me
Others cannot hear the sound of your voice in my heart


And I can't love you, anymore than I do
I love you more than anything else in the world

It was many and many a year ago, 
   In a kingdom by the sea, 
That a maiden there lived whom you may know 
   By the name of Annabel Lee; 
And this maiden she lived with no other thought 
   Than to love and be loved by me. 
I was a child and she was a child, 
   In this kingdom by the sea, 
But we loved with a love that was more than love— 
   I and my Annabel Lee— 
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven 
   Coveted her and me. 
And this was the reason that, long ago, 
   In this kingdom by the sea, 
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling 
   My beautiful Annabel Lee; 
So that her highborn kinsmen came 
   And bore her away from me, 
To shut her up in a sepulchre 
   In this kingdom by the sea. 
The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, 
   Went envying her and me— 
Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know, 
   In this kingdom by the sea) 
That the wind came out of the cloud by night, 
   Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee. 
But our love it was stronger by far than the love 
   Of those who were older than we— 
   Of many far wiser than we— 
And neither the angels in Heaven above 
   Nor the demons down under the sea 
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul 
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; 
For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams 
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; 
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes 
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee; 
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side 
   Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride, 
   In her sepulchre there by the sea— 
   In her tomb by the sounding sea.

I can relate to this song. I lost my boyfriend 8 years ago and I still mourn for him. It was a devistating, tragic death. I will always love you Damien. R.I.P !989-2003.

@zohor boub bruh even if that question wasn't slightly insane, they have a myspace account linked on their YT channel. I don't think they're active any more.
