Evanescence - Imaginary Lyrics

Swallowed up in the sound of my screaming
Cannot cease for the fear of silent nights
Oh, how I long for the deep sleep dreaming
The goddess of imaginary light

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby (paper flowers)
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me (paper flowers)

I linger in the doorway
Of alarm clock screaming monsters calling my name
Let me stay where the wind will whisper to me
Where the raindrops, as they're falling, tell a story

If you need to leave the world you live in
Lay your head down and stay a while (paper flowers)
Though you may not remember dreaming
Something waits for you to breathe again (paper flowers)

In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby (paper flowers)
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me (paper flowers)

Evanescence Imaginary Comments
  1. Local Blas Parera Traverso

    todo es igual, nada es mejor, lo mismo un burro que un gran profesor, noh ay aplazados , ni escalafon, los inmorales nos han igualado, si uno vive en al impostura y otro afana en su ambicion da lo mismo que sea cura colchonero rey de basto, caradura o polizon!

  2. Vane Vivaldi

    The best era😁😁😁😁

  3. Vamika Sharma

    I just can't imagine anyone but konan from akatsuki (Naruto) when I hear this song 💜

  4. Andy Beck Music

    Pure escapism :-) I love this album to bits, its twelve songs are lite-goth gems.

  5. Deeksha Anand

  8. Noor Ali

  9. Victoria Poling

    I have depression, bipolar, anxiety and PTSD and I understand this song as well. It helps me cope when everything feels like it's fallen down around me

  10. Nigel Hinds

    2020 still listening Amy rock's

  11. Christine Carroll

  12. Spencer Mouritsen

    Maladaptive Daydreaming

  19. jason watkins

    if you don't know what issues I'm referring to? You can't possibly understand the lyrics. You might feel the emotion but you need to understand what she is saying. There is nothing fun about Lithium. Watch everybody's fool. That's your brain on Lithium. I've found that a hit of the stanky and a small glass of bourbon produces much more desirable results. and a guitar helps. That said, she is just straight up badass.

    wonderful individual. we should embrace the fact that people with our same issues can be as talented as she is.

  21. Nazri Buang

    Penis pilot

  22. Banditø

  26. Chloé Lagarde

    me being 10 years old, do I want to BE her or do I want to be WITH her ahaha

  27. daniel souza

    Canta mal

  28. Robson Wagner

  29. Angel Valentyne

    Definitely wish girls had this kind of depth, theses days. Not just filters Instagram followers vanity.

  30. Princess pink518

    Oh, for a second I thought this was the song “immortal”

  31. John Moon

    This song only reminds me of all the horrible things I have survived and showed me that my nightmare was just the beginning. Hope,is something you work for.

  33. Jian Li

    hospital, the safest place? we are therre because we have problems

  34. Cristiane Quiteria

    Amy please do this type of music again! Hi-Lo is soo bad

    lacrymosa 88

    Hi-Lo is beautiful, it's just different from their style because it's part of Synthesis, which is an orchestral/electronic album. The next album will be entirely rock.

    Cristiane Quiteria

    @lacrymosa 88 With all respect I don´t like it. Miss old Heavy Dark Evanescence that ´s what Amy do best .she needs to relize she is not Bjork.

    lacrymosa 88

    @Cristiane Quiteria
    and you have no right to say that. All artists experience... curiosity is part of the nature of being musicians. I and many others have enjoyed Imperfection and Hi-Lo, now you could wait like everyone else for the new album and be happy that it will come soon, instead of getting upset with Amy.

    Cristiane Quiteria

    @lacrymosa 88 I am not upset i think she is free to try new things but as a solo artist . I dont think Amy wants to do this kind of Heavy Music anymore unfourtunately because I am a huge fan of EV .I really miss Terry The Open Door had a lot of his riffs and ideas.but we all are free to express when do not like a song.

  35. richtrophicherbs

    I'm nearly 70 and in love with Amy

    Days when I was high... did it for 10 years. Now it’s gone and I’m on a new chapter... still listen to evanescence and gives me strength to stay away from what I was before...

  77. Sophie Ankoku

    I seriously love this song so much, but every time I listen to it I start to cry -.-

  78. Mr Weber

    When individual people makes up lies and deceit about a story and Twists The Story around just to satisfy their self

  79. Mr Weber

    And something tells a story about what exactly

  80. Mr Weber

    The raindrops which are falling has been created by man is self

  81. Mr Weber

    Why would the wind whisper to you when twins were created by men of population

  82. Mr Weber

    Say your ringing in a doorway and individual people who disguises Monsters are calling your name

    So why don't you start fighting these Monsters off

  83. Adie Clozer

    16 years old album..and im still here :,)
