General Information

Written by: A. Lee

Contrary to popular belief, Amy Lee did not write this song as a joke. [1] In an interview with Spin Magazine she hinted that the song was dedicated to Ben Moody. [2] It features Amy's solo, un-layered, vocals with a very simple piano track. Some very experimental vocal work is heard throughout. This is also the song with the longest title.

This was the first post-Fallen song to be heard about. A website which no longer exists, published on 2004 a note about the upcoming Evanescence's album, which probably could be named "Frozen". Anyway, in the note it said that there would be a song about Ben called "The Last Song I'm Wasting On You".

The song was released as a bonus track on iTunes when The Open Door album was released (the album had to be pre-ordered from the website) and soon spread around the Internet. The song was also released as a B-side on the Lithium Single.

According to Amy, the real lyrics for the second line is "they're my own veins" and not any other variations of lyrics that some people used to believe to be the real lyrics.[3]

The Last Song I'm Wasting On You

Lyrics

Sparkling grey
They're my own veins

Any more than a whisper
Any sudden movement of my heart
And I know
I know I'll have to watch them pass away

Just get through this day

Give up your way
You could be anything
Give up my way
And lose myself

Not today
That's too much guilt to pay

Sickened in the sun
You dare tell me you love me
But you held me down and screamed you wanted me to die
Honey you know
You know I'd never hurt you that way

You're just so pretty in your pain

Give up my way
And I could be anything
I'll make my own way
Without your senseless
Hate
Hate
Hate
Hate

So run
Run
Run
And hate me
If it feels good
I can't hear your screams anymore

You lied to me
But I'm older now
And I'm not buying baby

Demanding my response
Don't bother breaking the door down
I found my way out

And you'll never hurt me again
