October is an Outtake of the first Evanescence release, the Evanescence EP.

Background Edit

It's debated among fans about whether the intention of this song's meaning is of a "gospel" nature; this is due to verses that are typical of devotional hymns "I fall into your abounding grace", even though no explicit reference to Jesus or Lord or God is made in the song.


LyricsEdit

I can't run anymore
I fall before you
Here I am, I have nothing left
Though I've tried to forget, you're all that I am
Take me home, I'm through fighting it

Broken, lifeless
I give up, you're my only strength
Without you, I can't go on
Anymore, ever again, oh

My only hope, my only peace [All the times I've tried]
My only joy, my only strength [To walk away from you]
My only power, my only life [I fall into your abounding grace]
My only love [And love is where I am]

I can't run anymore, I give myself to you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry
In all my bitterness
I ignored all that's real and true, all I need is you

When night falls on me, I'll not close my eyes
I'm too alive and you're too strong
I can't lie anymore, I fall down before you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry

My only hope, my only peace [All the times I've tried]
My only joy, my only strength [To walk away from you]
My only power, my only life [I fall into your abounding grace]
My only love [And love is where I am]

Constantly ignoring
The pain consuming me
But this time it's cut too deep
I'll never stray again

My only hope, my only peace [All the times I've tried]
My only joy, my only strength [To walk away from you]
My only power, my only life [I fall into your abounding grace]
My only love [And love is where I am]

My only hope, my only peace [All the times I've tried]
My only joy, my only strength [To walk away from you]
My only power, my only life [I fall into your abounding grace]
My only love [And love is where I am]
