EVANESCENCE


Tourniquet Lyrics

I tried to kill the pain
But only brought more
(So much more)

I lay dying and I'm pouring
Crimson regret
And betrayal

I'm dying, praying
Bleeding, I'm screaming
"Am I too lost to be saved?
Am I too lost?"

My God, my tourniquet
Return to me salvation
My God, my tourniquet
Return to me salvation

Do you remember me?
Lost for so long
Will you be on the other side?
Or will you forget me?

I'm dying, praying
Bleeding and screaming
"Am I too lost to be saved?
Am I too lost?"

My God, my tourniquet
Return to me salvation
My God, my tourniquet
Return to me salvation

Return to me salvation
I long to die

My God, my tourniquet
Return to me salvation
My God, my tourniquet
Return to me salvation

My wounds cry for the grave
My soul cries for deliverance
Will I be denied Christ?
(Christ)
Tourniquet, my suicide

[Inaudible]

Song is insane! By the way, why do people write out that they're emo or goth or whatever? No one cares and it doesn't make you cool and if someone does write that people shouldn't judge if someone is.

This song is about God. Evanescence is a Christian band!! She's saying she's sinned and for God to have grace over her and to let her continue to be saved. She's crying out asking is it too late for me? I know I'm lost right now but with your salvation I'm found! Please God find me and save me. Her soul crys for deliverance, deliverance from the sins he's committed!! This song means so much more when you realize she talking about her relationship with god.

She is crying to stop her bleeding, its like she cant take the pain, mumbling inside her souls like hungry demons, wanted to eat the sins, and tourniquet is a device to stop bleedings,

This song describes the thoughts I thought nobody would understand . Not to mention Amy lee sings beautifully . And for the record the screaming part is from Romeo and Juliet .
