Within Temptation - Lost Lyrics




My hope is on fire
My dreams are for sale
I dance on a wire
But don't want to fail her

I walk against the strain
Fight for what I believe in
I run towards the end
Trying not give in

She's lost in the darkness fading away
I'm still around here screaming her name
She's haunting my dreamworld trying to survive
My heart is frozen I'm losing my mind
Help me, I'm buried alive!
Buried alive!

I'm burning the bridges
And there's no return
I'm trying to reach her
I feel that she yearns

I walk against the strain
Fight for what I believe in
I run towards the end
Trying not give in

She's lost in the darkness fading away
I'm still around here screaming her name
She's haunting my dreamworld trying to survive
My heart is frozen I'm losing my mind
Help me, I'm buried alive!
Buried alive!

I tried to revive what's already drowned
They think I'm a fool who can't realize
Hope plays a wicked game with the mind
'Cause I thought that love would bind
I cannot revive what's already drowned
She won't come around

She's lost in the darkness fading away
I'm still around here screaming her name
She's haunting my dreamworld trying to survive
My heart is frozen I'm losing my mind
Help me, I'm buried alive!
Buried alive!

  3. Krestiana Nana

    listening in 2019

  4. Story amatir

  5. Clay4legacy

    I'm speechless.... there are no suggestions from me, cause the song is perfect!

  6. michael whiteley

    Fight for what I believe in is true

  7. Konstantinos Kati

    My favorite song from Within Temptation right now

  8. heybuddyalicia

    I meant the song pale.... This still an amazing song

  9. heybuddyalicia

    I seen the face of an angel when i heard this song

  10. Davina Claire

    Can someone to tell me about what is she talking here....!!!! Please

  11. Tinna Twinstar

    The words of this song are the words I could say to the person I used to be. The new one is much stronger but there are wounds that never heal completely. I will never be a sunny person with boundless faith in the change for the better. I'm desparetely calling my former self to come back but there is no way "she" can be again here. I am really lost

  12. Carlos The Villan

    Quite similar to shot in the dark

  13. Faza Fauzilah

    this song is good

  14. Tomken3

    What a great song!!

  15. Mayflower Wolves

    Sounds like Shot In The Dark .... "She's lost in the darkness! Fading away! I'm still around here screaming her name. She's haunting my dreamworld trying to survive. My heart is frozen, I'm losing my mind. Help me I'm buried alive!....Buried alive!"

    "Cuz your soul is on fire! A shot in the dark! What did they aim for when they missed you heart. I breathe under water! Its all in my hands! What can I do? Dont let it fall apart. A shot in the dark.......A shot in the dark"

    "She's lost in the darkness. Fading away!"

    "I feel you...fading away."

    Eliora Ben-Gurion

    I just sang one to the other!

  16. Alysha Wester

    beautiful song but i have to say: look at that smexy smily :)

    Jaedon xx90

    Alysha Wester ;)

  17. jaja a paja

    Wonderful song, thanks Sharon de Adel. :-))

  18. Chelsea Avery

    she is clearly worthwhile

  19. Elizabeth Frost

    For me, it talks about herself (not Sharon, i mean, is like a woman talks about herself, saying that she is trying not to give in, trying to escape from the darkness...) and... this song reflects my life right now.... I know that no one cares, but I needed to say it

    MBelle 1864

    It’s the same impression I have from watching this video. Hang in there.

    Tex

    We certainly care about you, sweet dreams good lady.

  20. Rachel Keith

    This song gives me life...

  21. Zahida Parveen

    I love that song

  22. Vasilis Fournaris

    amazing band!!!!

  23. Wolfpac92

    an amazing band amazing song and amazing lyrics

  24. Master Marrk

    It's been a while since last a song was powerful enough to bring tears to my eyes.

  25. Ssing7

    help me I'm buried alive 💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔

  26. Ƥɛʀlɑ ɴeɢʀɑ

    This song touches me deeply. It reminds me of someone important. Someone whose one I'd love to help, but sometimes I don't even know what to say... it's kinda sad, 'cuz she thinks I don't care, but she's the one I care at most on this world... In any case, a personal interpretation. Strange feelings itching on the heart, but the piece is wonderful. Thanks for uploading it.

  27. Ricarte Barros

    A little piece of Metallica (Nothing else matters) at the begining, but it's ok.

  28. Tyler Carta

    Now this is one sad and depressing song.

  29. Josefina Freire

    Sansa & Arya Stark.

  30. Karsten Hempel

    That smiley is completely inconsistent with the meaning of the song.  It should be a sadface.

  31. Célia Rovic

    Luv it :* <3

  32. Edgar Butcher

    Id like to hear Sharon featuring Apocalyptica...

  33. Jenny Pereira

    Music perfect <3 #Jae Seven 

  34. theheathenaxe

    "hope plays a wicked game with the mind" Yes it does.

  35. MikazukiRyu

    I have to wonder about the lyrics, is she trying to help someone important to her or is she talking about her inner self. That's what I love about it so much, there are so many ways to interrupt what the meaning is!

    Helge Stegemoen

    In my mind it's about trying to survive somoeone real close that's dying, and then struggling with the loss after that.

    The part about being buried alive and burning the bridges, reminds me about loosing my best friend. Listened to this song soon after loosing my best friend, and that were the first time i reacted on it's lyrics (Switched from Sirenia to Withing Temptation while driving my car, cause it were to depressing).

    My friend died suddendly though, and the part about hope and trying to revive the person in this song, makes me think it's about struggling with the loss of someone who struggled for awhile. Atleast i've listening alot to this song after loosing him, trying to figure out what's it about, and it's also been sorta of a terapy for me.

    Or maybe it's like someone here said about loosing herself, or maybe it's about just loosing a friend (like in Mean Girls), or maybe it's even just a reference to Lord of the Rings. Still struggle with figuring it out, and i also have no intention on stalking Sharon to find out. In my mind since it's a song, and i think the most important is what it means to you. Atleast this song is my favorite Within Temptation song, even though it makes me sad somoetimes :)

    Wendolyn Leagan

    Her grandmother (the vocalist's) die for Alzheimer. This song and "Say my name" are about the suffering she had seeing her grandmother get lost every day.

    XiXitraumintraum

    @Wendolyn Leagan
    Is Forgiven also about it?

    Wendolyn Leagan

    @XiXitraumintraum I don't know, but is posible.

    PokéGuitaristJake

    Is it bad even if you know what the songs lyrics are about, to change it to make yourself feel a different meaning? Like obviously it's about her finding her own self and heal or her grandmother that past, but I want to refer this to a girl a love, that not loving herself and seeing herself in a healthy enough manner separates her from loving in herself and falling in love with someone even though she wants to.

    I've been battling against love since I've known her for 7 months. Been off and on.

    I know she's been "screaming her name" * screaming my name * in silence as I scream her name vocally
    :( 💔

    She needs me and I want this and I need this ya know. And she is lost and I'm trying to help her find her way home as an outdoor cat would.

    I hope that's okay 😔

  36. Superwholocked Danosaur
