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)

Evanescence – Whisper

Hello there! Lost my internet connection last night before I got the chance to publish the post. Anyways, here it is. 
Today’s song is Whisper by Evanescence. It was published on the album “Fallen” in 2003. The lyrics you can read here.  
I’ve been wanting to write about Whisper for such a long time, but then I got other ideas for new posts, so it has just been postponed over and over again and it has slipped my mind. But now is the time, I give you now, “Whisper” by Evanescence!

It’s such an epic song! I simply just love the playing, and the choir is awesome. It really gives the song an extra push. The guitar intro rocks, and so does the solo too. The lyrics are hauntingly dark, and that makes the song even more epic. It really fills my body with a pleasant feeling. Amy’s vocals are extraordinary, as usual, I’d say. I think, as I may have said before, violins and rock fits greatly together, so the violins in the bridge from the refrain to solo are perfect. The soft piano playing in the background has a nice melody, and it’s so great to be able to listen to the song over and over again and discover new elements in the song that makes it better. 
This song has several different versions, where in one of them with a sample intro from “O Verona”, and in another one you can hear an extract from the movie “My World Dies Screaming”, also known as “Terror in the Haunted House”. (Here is the O Verona Version if you want to listen).
The Latin words in the end are repeated several times, “Servatis a periculum, servatis a maleficum” means “Save us from danger, save us from evil”. Love the fact that they actually used Latin in the song, makes it special. 

“I’m frightened by what I see
But somehow I know
That there’s much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be blinded by tears”
(Whisper – Evanescence) 

Hi! As I said, I will blog all weekend, and since in Norway the time is just half past 11 in the evening, it’s still the 3rd of September.
Now, today’s song is Tear The World Down by We Are The Fallen. Published on the album with the same title, Tear The World Down, published in 2010. Lyrics here, and at least there’s sound in the video below:

Now, the long, almost forever-lasting intro is slow and nice, with lovely violin, making a nice transition into the rocking guitars and great drum work. I usually don’t comment the drums, but they’re pretty good here. The song, with it’s long intro, is a tad too long for my taste, as I need variation, and tend to get bad conscience when I switch song before the current is done. Anyways, need to make this short, if I’m gonna make the deadline (haha, like I really had one!). Like the use of choir in this song, like many of the other goth-songs (if you think this song belong under another genre, don’t be afraid to shout out!) they have, it makes it greater with a choir. (You hear it best in the end).
Another thing I like, is the great violin in this song. I love the combo of rocking guitars and aggressive violins.

“I suffer through through the shame, wishing hope would just abandon me till this is over. “
