Evanescence - Lithium Lyrics

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow.
Oh, but God, I want to let it go.

Come to bed, don't make me sleep alone.
Couldn't hide the emptiness, you let it show.
Never wanted it to be so cold.
Just didn't drink enough to say you love me.

I can't hold on to me,
Wonder what's wrong with me.

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow.

Don't want to let it lay me down this time.
Drown my will to fly.
Here in the darkness I know myself.
Can't break free until I let it go.
Let me go.

Darling, I forgive you... After all,
Anything is better than to be alone.
And in the end I guess I had to fall.
Always find my place among the ashes.

I can't hold on to me,
Wonder what's wrong with me.

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, ...stay in love with you.
I'm gonna let it go.

Evanescence Lithium Comments
  1. Johanna Cowell

    I used to listen to this when I was 13-14 if only I'd known that 10 years later I'd be taking lithium hahahaha #bipolarlife
    I'd also like to add that for me Lithium never made me feel numb or empty or anything like this, I can honestly say that saved my life and I don't think I'd be here without it.

  2. Вад непомню

    Это просто шедевр!!!!

  3. Rick

    Where are all these natural rock/metal girls these days :(
    Feels like most of the girls these days are plastic and listen to crappy music.

    It's so heart-shattering knowing what this song is actually about. I hope Amy will be okay with her extreme mental disorders, it makes me feel depressed knowing she's not... Okay, as people say. I sometimes harm myself with my nails, not drawing blood though. I sometimes have suicidal thoughts too, even though I have anxiety. This does't just go out to Amy, but to all of you. All of you whom have bad mental disorders. It may not seem like it, but it will get better. If you feel like no one loves you and you think you should commit suicide, don't do it. I care about you all, even though I don't know you. I care if any of you would die of suicide, I care deeply. I hope Amy and all of you will feel better.

  7. John Preisner

    I've been on pain meds of one kind or another for 23 yrs. I can safely say that I have felt nothing inside myself. Been dealing with depression and anxiety most of my life as well. I have to take 150-200mgs of elivil just to fall asleep for maybe 2 hrs at most. I've had chronic pain since a DO. Dr. munipulated my neck to treat me for carpal tunnel syndrom in 1997. I would welcome lithium at this point in my life........

  12. BoB HAWK

    Time to stop caring and start hurting those who don't care!!!!!

  13. Callie Durling

    I was on Lithium before the Pharmcos messed with it and turned it into Eskalith. I am Bi-Polar and you are born with that. It runs in families & I got it from my Dad's side of the family. I take Zoloft which is far more tolerable.

    One thing I notice about people supporting any musical artist is that each band has its loyal fans that have wonderful esprit de corps and camaraderie amongst each other. It's truly a remarkable thing to experience.

    Algum brasileiro aí sofrendo de transtorno bipolar e querendo ajuda? Estou aqui pra conversar. Também sofro dessa terrível doença, saiba que você não está sozinho.

  68. Romeo Is Dead

    Maybe one day I’ll be able to sing as good as her. Her voice touches my very soul and sometimes I even start to cry because it hurts so much. I’m still as much in love with Evanescence as I was years ago. I wish I even half of the talent she has.

  69. Romeo Is Dead

    I’m so jealous. You sing so beautifully.

  70. marrow dreign

    Lithium is not a Heavy Psychoactive drug as many would believe. Lithium is a natural element (metal) that affects sodium levels and the chemistry (on a very basic level) of the brain and nervous system. How it works isn't fully understood.
    I took lithium for a while. Unfortunately, it shut down my thyroid (known side-effect).
    Just trying to clear stigmas related to people dealing with depression... Being on lithium is a very basic treatment and does not mean the person is taking heavy medications. It just has a cool name.

    Nathaniel Wildebuer

    very common drug for Bi-polar disorder. It has been largely replaced by newer safer (less bad side-effects) meds.

  71. Mauro Evans
