Song: My Immortal
"These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real. There's just too much that time cannot erase."
I could drown in Amy Lee's vocals and die happy. 'Tis just one of those gorgeous vocals that's out of the world, aesthetically enthralling, plain beautiful.
My Immortal has been a constant in my playlist since forever. I absolutely adore the way it starts off with nothing but Lee's vocals and Moody's piano arrangement. Slowly, gradually, Lee's voice rises, delivering emotions that feels so real and raw, her voice kept under control with the slightest hint of breaking free and losing it. Gorgeous arrangement and when you're hit with a block of solid, decent rock near the end, Lee's voice smoothly passing from a piano rock to a more classic one, 'tis perfection achieved there.
Dark, haunting lyrics're part of the charm in this tune. 'Tis brilliantly open, with a wide scope to it while keeping intricate details strung around. A tune about losing someone, letting go, being there... an entire story's strewn delicately, left for the listener to pick the pieces they relate to.
I don't think one could get tired of this song. I never did.
