Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Evanescence

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Evanescence's, "Bring Me To Life"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And rape me in the dark.
The Real Lyrics:
And save me from the dark.
The Story: I was listening to the song with my little sister. She misheard the lyrics on that line. She is 4 and doesn't know what sex or rape is. I had stopped the car and me boyfriend was getting in. My little sis jumps up and starts singing that line, which she thought was 'and rape me in the dark'. I was so embarassed and no one knew what to say. So I had to explain to her that what she said was wrong and not to say it again. She was so upset. - Submitted by: jade
Evanescence's, "Bring Me To Life"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Bring my brother's gun
Before I come undone.
The Real Lyrics:
Bid my blood to run
Before I come undone.
The Story: I thought she was maybe talking about being a vampire or some kind of freaky monster thing, and wanted her brother to kill her before she did anymore harm. - Submitted by: Jessica
Evanescence's, "Bring Me To Life"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Lift my heart to run.
The Real Lyrics:
Bid my blood to run.
The Story: Originally I thought it was called 'Wake Me Up Inside' and when I first saw the album, 'Fallen', I wondered why that song wasn't listed on it. Now I know that the song is actually called 'Bring Me To Life'. - Submitted by: David Pratter
Evanescence's, "Call Me When Your Sober"
The Misheard Lyrics:
How could I burn you forever?
How could I, you were never blind.
The Real Lyrics:
How could I have burned paradise?
How could I, you were never mine.
The Story: My friends and I were sitting in my car and this song came on. I knew it somewhat, so I sang along with my friends. But when it came to the part when I sang the misheard lyric, everyone piped up and said, 'You were never blind?!' and started laughing. It was a total red-face moment. - Submitted by: Purple Monster
Evanescence's, "Going Under"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I snore like thunder.
The Real Lyrics:
I'm going under.
The Story: I was singing with my friends and decided to sing solo. So I started to sing 'Going Under' by Evanescence. Instead of singing 'I'm going under', I sang, 'I snore like thunder.' I was so humiliated, but life goes on and I am over it now. But my friends still tease me! - Submitted by: Samantha
Evanescence's, "Imaginary"
The Misheard Lyrics:
In my field of purple flowers

In my field of paper flowers
Evanescence's, "My Immortal"
The Misheard Lyrics:
It is you still held on me
The Real Lyrics:
But you still held on me
The Story: The thing is it the only one that makes sense; the other ones don't. Sing um to yourself when she sings. See it it goes - Submitted by: francesca
Evanescence's, "My Immortal"
The Misheard Lyrics:
These words won't seem to heal.
The Real Lyrics:
These wounds won't seem to heal.
The Story: When I heard it, I thought maybe she meant that saying that didn't make her feel any better. I guess I thought wrong! - Submitted by: Mr. Sally
Evanescence's, "Snow White Queen"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I can't mistake the twisted way you f*** me.
The Real Lyrics:
I can't escape the twisted way you think of me.
The Story: I suspected all along that these weren't the right lyrics; but had to be sure. Amy Lee doesn't normally sink to the lows of a lot of her contemporaries. Besides, it sounded really out of place for the rest of the song. - Submitted by: BulldozerBegins

And I'm pouring crimson regret and betrayal.
The Story: This is my daughter's favorite song and she plays it at least 3 or 4 times a day. It was 2 weeks before I realized what the actual lyrics were - and that was after I looked them up! My daughter thought I was trying to be funny when I sang along to the song. - Submitted by: Misty

My gun, my turnip kid
The Real Lyrics:
My God, my tourniquet
