General information

Written by: A. Lee, B. Moody and D. Hodges

My Last Breath is the tenth track from Evanescence's debut album, Fallen. It was originally recorded during the 2001-2002 demo sessions before being chosen for the album.

During the "behind the scenes" section of the Anywhere But Home DVD, Amy received a fan's painting that was inspired by the song.

In an interview, Amy and Ben said that the 9/11 attacks in New York City inspired them to write this song.[1] The band stopped playing this song after the Fallen Tour, but it was added to the set list to support Evanescence in 2012 for two months.[2]

Lyrics

Fallen version

Hold on to me love
You know I can't stay long
All I wanted to say was I love you and I'm not afraid
Can you hear me?
Can you feel me in your arms?

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light it ends here tonight

I'll miss the winter
A world of fragile things
Look for me in the white forest
Hiding in a hollow tree [come find me]
I know you hear me
I can taste it in your tears

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light it ends here tonight

Closing your eyes to disappear
You pray your dreams will leave you here
But still you wake and know the truth
No one's there

Say goodnight
Don't be afraid
Calling me
Calling me as you fade to black

[Say goodnight] Holding my last breath
[Don´t be afraid] Safe inside myself
[Calling me, calling me] Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light, it ends here tonight

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light it ends here tonight
Holding my last breath

Demo version

Hold on to me love
You know I can't stay long
All I wanted to say was I love you and I'm not afraid
Can you hear me?
Can you feel me in your arms?

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light it ends here tonight

I'll miss the winter
A world of fragile things
Look for me in the white forest
Hiding in a hollow tree [come find me]
I know you hear me
I can taste it in your tears

Holding my last breath [holding my last breath]
Safe inside myself [safe inside myself]
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light it ends here tonight

Closing your eyes to disappear
You pray your dreams will leave you here
But still you wake and know the truth
No one's there

Say goodnight
Don't be afraid
Calling me
Calling me as you fade to black

[Say goodnight] Holding my last breath
[Don´t be afraid] Safe inside myself
[Calling me, calling me] Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light, it ends here tonight

Say goodnight
Don't be afraid
Are all my thoughts of you
Calling me
Calling me as you fade
