Lyrics

Give Unto Me - Evanescence EP outtake

I've been watching you from a distance
The distance sees through your disguise
All I want from you is your hurting
I want to heal you
I want to save you from the dark

Give unto me your troubles
I'll endure your suffering
Place onto me your burden
I'll drink your deadly poison

Why should I care if they hurt you
Somehow it matters more to me
Than if I were hurting myself
Save you (save you)
I'll save you

(Fear not the flame of my love's candle)
Give unto me your troubles
(Fear not the flame of my love's candle)
I'll endure your suffering
(Let it be the sun in your world of darkness)
Place onto me your burden
(Give unto me all that frightens you)
I'll drink your deadly poison
(I'll have your nightmares for you if you sleep soundly)

Give unto me your troubles
(Fear not the flame of my love's candle)
I'll endure your suffering
(Let it be the sun in your world of darkness)
Place onto me your burden
(Give unto me all that frightens you)
I'll drink your deadly poison
(I'll have your nightmares for you if you sleep soundly)

Fear not the flame of my love's candle
Let it be the sun in your world of darkness
