General Information

The 12th track on Evanescence's self-titled album, Evanescence (album).

Swimming Home is the only track on the Standard Edition to include harp.

In a track-by-track interview with NME.com, Amy Lee explained the song saying[1]:

Vin1.jpg Swimming Home is definitely the truest picture of that sort of electronic-very different phase that I was going through for a little bit.

I love the song, I think that it expresses a little bit of a new emotion for me, for Evanescence. Because it's sad, it's goodbye, it's sort of from the other side of the song before. It's like from the person's perspective that's moving on to the next life. But it's peaceful, it's an acceptance of that giant crazy thing that fascinates me, that I wonder about and think about. And it's like, life and death and what comes after, you know and what does it all mean. So it's that acceptance and peaceful feeling like the calm after the storm.



Studio versions:

  • Status: Unreleased
  • Released On: Evanescence (album)
  • Length: 3:43


Way down
I’ve been way down
Underneath this skin
Waiting to hear my name again

I’m sorry
Nothing can hold me
I adore you still
But I hear them calling
And nothing can hold me

Way down
(Do you really want me?)
All the way down
(Do you really want me?)
I will hear your voice
(Do you really want me?)
But I’ll no longer understand
(No one’s really loved me)

I’m sorry
Nothing can hold me
I adore you still
But I hear them calling

I was looking to the sky
When I knew I’d be swimming home
And I cannot betray my kind
They are here - it’s my time

I’m sorry
Nothing can hold me
(Do you really want me?)
I adore you still
But I hear them calling, calling
And nothing can hold me
