The Open Door: Track 11

The piano is the principal instrument for this song. It displays the maturity of the band’s new sound. The choir once again appears, causing the end of the song to be really epic.

Amy's description of the song: "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." VH1.com

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

All my fears 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
