General information

Written by: A. Lee and T. Balsamo

"...the mechanical lights of Lisbon...... ;)"
(AmyLeeEV - Twitter)[1]

Your Star is the eleventh track from Evanescence's second studio album, The Open Door. It's Terry Balsamo's favorite song on the album.[2] Amy mentioned in one of their concerts in Ottawa, Canada on January 10, 2007 that Your Star was "pretty much the hardest thing [they] have ever written."

Amy's description of the song:

Vin1.jpg A couple of years ago, I felt so alone that I was dreading going on tour. We had just arrived in Lisbon and I was in my room feeling jet-lagged, weird and tired. I had just been home where I could see the stars at night. But when I looked out the hotel window in Lisbon, I couldn't see anything because we were in this big city. That was the last straw. I felt so depressed, I just started singing this song.[3] Vin2.jpg


During the bridge, the background choir sings "Alma surdo, loucura, o­nde está seu alma? Loucura, todo sozinho" (Portuguese with some grammatical mistakes) which tries to mean "Deaf soul, madness, where is its soul? Madness, all alone" in English. In correct Portuguese it would be "Alma surda, loucura, onde está sua alma? Loucura, toda sozinha."

Your Star was confirmed to be reworked and included on the orchestral album, Synthesis, when the track list was revealed through the album's pre-order on September 15, 2017. This version was performed live for the first time on October 14, 2017 at the Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada for the Synthesis Live tour. Watch a performance of the song here.

Lyrics

I can't see your star
I can't see your star
Though I patiently waited, bedside,
For the death of today
I can't see your star
The mechanical lights of Lisbon
Frightened it away

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for
We're wandering now
All in parts in pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out

I can't see your star
I can't see your star
How can the darkness feel so wrong?

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for
We're wandering now
All in parts in pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out

So far away
It's growing colder without your love
Why can't you feel me calling your name?
Can't break the silence
It's breaking me

[Alma surda, loucura] all my fears [onde está sua alma?]
[Loucura, toda sozinha] turn to rage

And I'm alone now
Me and all I stood for
We're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out now

And nothing worth fighting for
We're wandering now
All in parts and pieces, swim lonely
Find your own way out
