|Lost in Paradise|
|Released||May 25, 2012|
"Lost in Paradise" is the seventh track on the self-titled album, Evanescence.
Amy has said many times that she has a special connection with this song:
"That song is just really raw... that's a song that has no censorship, like I was in a place where I was like "yeah I don't know whats going to happen, and I can't save the day and act like everything is perfect"... the lyrics on that one kinda came fast and that's sorta what happens when you're not thinking so hard... I love it because its vulnerable and sometimes, i guess its hard to me to just totally get vulnerable, its like I always want to be strong... sometimes the hardest thing is not trying so hard."
Amy also had this to say about the song: "I'd say this is the most intimate song on the album. Really, it was from that kind of hard time in 2010 where I felt lost and sort of like I lost my vision for a second.
And it's cool because the song is sort of almost an apology to the fans, for being gone. It's like 'Here's how it went, I needed to run away'. But I miss this, and it's hard and it's painful sometimes and it's this big giant mess of things. But it's me and it's my heart and it's our relationship and... Yeah, I want it back."
Music video Edit
Amy explained that they didn't have a big budget for a new video, but she really wanted to make a video anyway even if it wasn't given an official release.
