General information

Written by: A. Lee and B. Moody

Forgive Me is the fourth track from Evanescence's second EP, Sound Asleep EP. It's considered one of the most personal songs written by Evanescence. It seems to ask a person for forgiveness about a mistake made by the singer.

Ben Moody on the song:

Vin1.jpg Q: ...Since you have said "Forgive Me" is not an Evanescence song, are we to assume that it is an Amy Lee song?

Ben: No. that was done by both if us.. it just wasn't meant to be...err... actually that was a private song.

Lyrics

Can you forgive me again
I don't know what I said
But I didn't mean to hurt you

I heard the words come out
I felt that I would die
It hurts so much to hurt you

Then you look at me
You're not shouting anymore
You're silently broken

I'd give anything now
To kill those words for you
Each time I say something I regret
I cry I don't want to lose you
But somehow I know that you will never leave me, yeah!

'Cause you were made for me
Somehow I'll make you see
How happy you make me, Oh!

I can't live this life
Without you by my side
I need you to survive
So stay with me
You look in my eyes
And I'm screaming inside that I'm sorry [sorry]

[Ooh I'm sorry]

And you forgive me again
You're my one true friend
And I never meant to hurt you
