Lead singer, Amy Lee, wrote this about the man who would become her husband. When she met him her life was a mess and she says that he looked into her eyes and asked if she was happy. “I felt like he could just see straight into my soul.”
The co-writer of the song said it was about
“discovering something or someone that awakens a feeling inside them that they’ve never had before. You discover there is a world that is bigger than just your safe bubble.”songfacts.com
The song hardly needs any comment and seems to resonate with the cry of humanity, “save me from the nothing I’ve become”. To me the song is a cry from the heart, a longing to be known, to be really seen. It’s the longing to come alive.
And the story reminded me of a woman Jesus met. He saw through her words and how things appeared externally. He offered her life. She described him as someone who “told me everything I have ever done”, maybe she felt like Amy Lee, “he could see straight into my soul.”
Read and reflect… John chapter 4:3-29.
“Bring me to life…wake me up inside”
