After Wind-Up Records insisted the group bring on a full-time rapper and the band refused, Evanescence went home, assuming they no longer had a record deal. However, the label contacted them again and a compromise was met – one song would feature a guest rapper, and that was “Bring Me To Life”.

It is the band’s debut single and breakout song, bringing them international fame and success, helped by its inclusion on the soundtrack to the 2003 film Daredevil. It went to #1 in Italy, Australia and the UK, and reached the top 5 in Germany, Canada and the US in the spring of 2003.

In the UK, it was the last guitar-driven chart-topper to stay at #1 for four weeks until 2021 when Olivia Rodrigo’s third single “Good 4 U” accomplished the same – eighteen years later.

Lead singer Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody shared in an interview with AOL Sessions that the song was inspired by the desire to make the most out of life. Later, Lee told Songfacts it was inspired by a moment during a rough time in life when her future husband suddenly asked her if she was happy.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Amy Lee]
How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core, where I’ve become so numb
Without a soul, my spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home

[Chorus: Amy Lee & Paul McCoy]
Wake me up, wake me up inside
I can’t wake up, wake me up inside
Save me, call my name and save me from the dark
Wake me up, bid my blood to run
I can’t wake up, before I come undone
Save me, save me from the nothing I’ve become

[Verse 2: Amy Lee]
Now that I know what I’m without, you can’t just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real, bring me to life

[Chorus: Amy Lee & Paul McCoy]
Wake me up, wake me up inside
I can’t wake up, wake me up inside
Save me, call my name and save me from the dark
Wake me up, bid my blood to run
I can’t wake up, before I come undone
Save me, save me from the nothing I’ve become

[Bridge: Amy Lee & Paul McCoy]
Bring me to life, I’ve been livin’ a lie, there’s nothing inside
Bring me to life
Frozen inside, without your touch, without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead

[Verse 3: Amy Lee & Paul McCoy]
All this time, I can’t believe I couldn’t see
Kept in the dark, but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years, it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything
Without a thought, without a voice, without a soul
Don’t let me die here
There must be something more
Bring me to life

[Chorus: Amy Lee & Paul McCoy]
Wake me up, wake me up inside
I can’t wake up, wake me up inside
Save me, call my name and save me from the dark
Wake me up, bid my blood to run
I can’t wake up, before I come undone
Save me, save me from the nothing I’ve become

[Outro: Amy Lee & Paul McCoy]
Bring me to life, I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside
Bring me to life
