General Information

Written by: A. Lee and T. Balsamo and T. McCord

The 5th track on Evanescence's self-titled album. Amy Lee describes it as

Vin1.jpg ...beautiful and epic, but at the same time it's got that rocking vibe Vin2.jpg


In her interview with MTV Amy Lee talked about the song saying:

Vin1.jpg I wrote it with the guys. It was real collaborative. That was a hard one for me to write the lyrics for, because I had the chorus — it's very epic and dramatic; 'Counting the days to meet you on the other side' — but then, the verses, again, that element of fun is coming back in, you know, the band, it's grooving... so I'm like, 'How do I sing about death in a way that's sort of bitchy?' Like, it's not really possible ... it's hard to explain. But it's harder than it sounds. Vin2.jpg


A sample of this track was shared with fans on Wednesday July 13th on MTV's website. [1]

On Wednesday August 17th "The Other Side" was premiered live at Evanescence's Nasville show.

Lyrics

Make me whole again
Open your eyes
Taunted by the shadows of your lie
Cold and far away
But not even mine
Undo everything and take me higher
Never believing what they say ‘cause I’m...

Counting the days to meet you on the other side
I will always be waiting
Until the day that I see you on the other side
Come and take me home

I’m not giving in
I want you back
Holding together by shards of our past
Stole my heart away
I can’t let you go
Break these chains and let me fly till you’re higher
Over and over in my mind

Counting the days to meet you on the other side
I will always be waiting
Until the day that I see you on the other side
Come and take me home

I am so lost without my place inside your heart
I want someone, I need to know you hear me
[inaudible]

Counting the days to meet you on the other side
I will always be waiting
Until the day that I see you on the other side
Come and take me home

Counting the days to meet you on the other side
I will always be waiting
Until the day that I see you on the other side
Come and take me home
