Hello is the ninth track from Evanescence's debut album, Fallen. The song was originally developed during the 2001-2002 demo sessions and is one of the most personal songs on the album. It's the only Fallen song that has never been performed live to date, despite consideration back in 2003 by Amy shortly after it was released. However, a theme from the song was used in the beginning of a few live shows in 2003 as the intro to "Going Under". There is also a video of Amy singing it in her parents' house in 2004, which is the only recorded live version of the song.
This is one of the songs on Fallen that Amy is proud of. "Lyrically, I think that's my favourite thing on Fallen because it relates specifically to one personal instance that is very, very special to me and very close to me, so I think Hello is probably the one song of ours that can actually make me cry."
The song is about one of Amy's sisters, who passed away in 1987 at the age of three from an unidentified illness (this sister's name is known, but is not provided out of respect).

Playground school bell rings again
Rain clouds come to play again
Has no one told you she's not breathing?
Hello I'm your mind giving you someone to talk to
If I smile and don't believe
Soon I know I'll wake from this dream
Don't try to fix me, I'm not broken
Hello I'm the lie living for you so you can hide
Suddenly I know I'm not sleeping
Hello I'm still here
All that's left of yesterday
