Hey! It’s time for another song by We Are The Fallen. This time I’m writing about a song called I Am Only One, which was published on the album Tear The World Down in 2010. Here are the lyrics.

 

This is a slow and beautiful song. I like Carly’s vocals very much, and the lyrics are sore, but very good. I must admit, I liked it so much the first time I heard it, that I cried a little. I think the violins make the song more dramatic, and the piano melody is very nice. In the end you also hear the intro to the song Tear The World Down.

 

“Ever after never came, and I’m still waiting for a love I’ll never have
And all the dreams I lay to rest, are ghosts that keep me
After all that I’ve become, I am only one”
(I Am Only One – We Are The Fallen)

Hello there! Today’s song will be Don’t Leave Me Behind by We Are The Fallen. The song is from the album Tear The World Down (2010) You can find the lyrics here. Enjoy the listening.

 

 

I really enjoy listening to the whole song. It has some great components, both the piano intro, the “dramatic” violins, and the guitar solo. Carly Smithson has a pretty good voice that sets its mark on this song, especially in the refrain. She is holding on to every word and making them all important, reinforcing them. The lyrics are excellent, and may sound a bit needy when you just read them without music, but when backed up by drums and guitars it just sounds great.

 

“So afraid of dreaming
The story is repeating, screaming, monsters, I’m bleeding”
(Don’t Leave Me Behind – We Are The Fallen)

 

Hi there! Well, it’s about freaking time I wrote something, so here it goes…

Today’s song will be St. John by We Are The Fallen. The song was published in 2010 on the album Tear The World Down.
Here’s the lyrics, and video below:

This is a really dark song, with some even darker lyrics. St. John is actually a mental hospital, so thereof the lyrics “When did this asylum become where I sleep”.  It rocks, with brilliant riffs and hard playing all the way through, and it haunts you. You can really feel it with the piano in the intro, followed by a few chugs from heavy guitars, and even Carly’s voice sounds haunting.
Not much more to say, just listen and enjoy.

“My whole world’s forsaken
Won’t let you destroy my faith again”
(St. John – We Are The Fallen)

Hi there again! Sorry for the long stop in my blogging. Family is really time consuming!
Anyway, now I’m back, and today I’ve chosen Burn by We Are The Fallen. First, as usual, we have the lyrics here.
The song was first released on the album “Tear The World Down” in 2010. And next, as usual, we have the video:

Now, after taking in that beautiful, strong and hard core song, I need to say that it’s one of the best songs by We Are The Fallen I’ve heard. They’re relatively fresh, so it’s just been one album, but it was great all the same. Well, I feel it’s necessary to say, for those who didn’t know, that the band consists mostly of ex-Evanescence members: Ben Moody, Rocky Gray and John LeCompt (and another guitarist, Marty O’Brien), and also powered by vocals from Carly Smithson. Some of you, who knows a little about their history, they will probably think that I’m being “unfaithful” to Evanescence or something, but I just care about the music, (although I find some of Ben’s comments really annoying) and I still love Evanescence above all artists, not that it matters…
Now, for the real mission: The song.

For the song, I would say, after listening to it many times, that it’s simply hard core. Well, to make a deeper comment, it starts on with hard, cool guitars and drums, and it smooths out in the refrain with violin and a slower beat, but I like that too! And the lyrics is kind of dark, but at the same time, it’s about love, so it’s not so dark after all. It’s beautiful.

Hope you’re not all too disappointed in me for not immediately posting my review on “What You Want”, but I kind of want to wait until I can get my hands on the music video too! (And plus, you can’t always get what you want! Ha-ha).

“My heart is waiting and breaking to return to burn with you tonight”
