Evanescence - My Heart Is Broken Lyrics

I will wander ’til the end of time, torn away from you.

I pull away to face the pain.
I close my eyes and drift away.
Over the fear that I will never find
A way to heal my soul.
And I will wander ’til the end of time
Torn away from you.

My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us from sorrow’s hold
Or from my hard heart.

I can’t go on living this way
And I can’t go back the way I came
Shamed of this fear that I will never find
A way to heal my soul
And I will wander ’til the end of time
Half a life without you

My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us

Change - open your eyes to the light
I denied it all so long, oh so long
Say goodbye, goodbye

My heart is broken
Release me, I can’t hold on
Deliver us
My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us
My heart is broken
Sweet sleep, my dark angel
Deliver us from sorrow’s hold

Song Information

Lyrically, the song was inspired by victims of sex trafficking. “A good friend of mine heads up an organization in New York that rescues victims of sex trafficking”. Amy clarifies. “My husband and I got involved and were really moved and horrified. As I was writing the song I was putting myself in that place - what would it be like to be trapped? Threatened? Alone? Unable to tell anyone what was happening because you’re afraid of what would happen?”
