Track listing


"Lost in Paradise" is the seventh track on the self-titled album, Evanescence.

Background Edit

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

The music video for "Lost in Paradise" is a compilation of live videos recorded by fans during their Evanescence tour.

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.

LyricsEdit

I’ve been believing in something, so distant
As if I, was human
And I’ve been denying this feeling of hopelessness
In me, in me

All the promises I made
Just to let you down
You believed in me but I’m broken

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting
We’ve been falling for all this time
And now I’m lost in paradise

As much as I’d like the past not to exist
It still does
And as much as I’d like to feel like I belong here
I’m just as scared as you

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting
We’ve been falling for all this time
And now I’m lost in paradise

Run away, run away
One day we wont feel this pain anymore
Take it all away, shadows of you
'Cause they wont let me go

So I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting
We’ve been falling for all this time
And now I’m lost in paradise

Alone and lost in paradise
