General information

Written by: A. Lee and B. Moody

Solitude is the second track from Evanescence's first EP, Evanescence EP. It was written by Amy when she was thirteen-years-old[1] and is credited as the first Evanescence song ever written.

Will Boyd is credited with bass, backup vocals and guitar on this work. Matt Outlaw is credited with drums on this work.

This is the first in a series of four piano ballads that Amy and Ben created in a friendly writing competition (according to Ben, Amy won with Give Unto Me). This song, along with Understanding, was on a compact cassette which is said by Amy to be Evanescence's first "professional" recording.

Lyrics

Two, three, four

How many times have you told me you love her?
As many times as I wanted to tell you the truth
How long have I stood here beside you?
I lived through you, you looked through me

Ooh, solitude
Still with me is only you
Ooh, solitude
I can't stay away from you

How many times have I done this to myself?
How long will it take before I see?
When will this hole in my heart be mended?
Who now is left alone but me?

Ooh, solitude
Forever me and forever you
Ooh, solitude
Only you, only true

Everyone leaves me stranded
Forgotten, abandoned, left behind
I can't stay here another night

Your secret admirer
Who could it be?

Ooh, can't you see all along it was me?
How can you be so blind as to see right through me?

Solitude
Still with me is only you
Ooh, solitude
I can't stay away from you

Ooh, solitude
Forever me and forever you
Ooh, solitude
Only you, only true
