General information

Written by: A. Lee, B. Moody and W. Boyd[citation needed]

October is an outtake from Evanescence's first EP, Evanescence EP, and is one of the band's earliest recordings.

There's some controversy among fans about a supposedly "gospel" nature of this composition, due to verses that are typical of devotional hymns "I fall into your abounding grace", for example, although no explicit reference to Jesus or Lord or God is made in the song.

Rumors say that this song was written for Amy's little sister who died in October, but this still remains unconfirmed.

Lyrics

I can't run anymore
I fall before you
Here I am
I have nothing left

Though I've tried to forget
You're all that I am
Take me home
I'm through fighting it

Broken
Lifeless
I give up
You're my only strength

Without you
I can't go on
Anymore
Ever again

My only hope [All the times I've tried]
My only peace [To walk away from you]
My only joy, my only strength,
My only power [I fall into your abounding grace]
My only life [And love is where I am]
My only love

I can't run anymore
I give myself to you
I'm sorry
I'm sorry

In all my bitterness
I ignored all that's real and true
All I need is you

When night falls on me
I'll not close my eyes
I'm too alive
And you're too strong

I can't lie anymore
I fall down before you
I'm sorry
I'm sorry

My only hope [All the times I've tried]
My only peace [To walk away from you]
My only joy, my only strength,
My only power [I fall into your abounding grace]
My only life [And love is where I am]
My only love

Constantly ignoring
The pain consuming me
But this time it's cut too deep
I'll never stray again

My only hope [All the times I've tried]
My only peace [To walk away from you]
My only joy, my only strength,
My only power [I fall into your abounding grace]
My only life [And love is where I am]
My only love

My only hope [All the times I've tried]
My only peace [To walk away from you]
My only joy, my only strength,
My only power [I fall into your abounding grace]
My only life [And love is where I am]
My only love
