It's funny though cause I'm always telling it to myself. It's not like you learn something and then just go 'Yeah, totally'...

Background

Amy Lee describes the meaning of this song in the following quote:

The End Of the Dream is, just about life, and the end of the dream is death. You know it's about the journey and it's about, again, this recurring theme of not being afraid and living while you're alive because it doesn't last forever. I think that's something that comes out a lot in our music because it's something that I deeply feel. It's funny though cause I'm always telling it to myself. It's not like you learn something and then just go 'Yeah, totally'... You have to make a constant effort to remind yourself of things that you believe in, you know. So I feel like, yeah that theme about not being afraid and life doesn't last forever... that comes out a lot. And yeah, that song is about that.

Lyrics

I found a grave, brushed off the face
Felt your light, and I remember why I know this place
I found a bird closing her eyes one last time
And I wonder if she dreamed like me

As much as it hurts, ain't it wonderful to feel?
So go on and break your wings
Follow your heart 'til it bleeds
As we run towards the end of the dream

I'm not afraid, I push through the pain
And I'm on fire, I remember how to breathe again

As much as it hurts, ain't it wonderful to feel?
So go on and break your wings
Follow your heart 'til it bleeds
As we run towards the end of the dream

Why must we fall apart to understand how to fly?
I will find a way, even without wings

Follow your heart 'til it bleeds
As we run towards the end of the dream
Follow your heart 'til it bleeds
And we've come to the end of the dream

I found a grave, brushed off the face
Felt your light, and I remember why I know this place
I found a bird closing her eyes one last time
And I wonder if she dreamed like me

As much as it hurts, ain't it wonderful to feel?
So go on and break your wings
Follow your heart 'til it bleeds
As we run towards the end of the dream

I'm not afraid, I push through the pain
And I'm on fire, I remember how to breathe again

As much as it hurts, ain't it wonderful to feel?
So go on and break your wings
Follow your heart 'til it bleeds
As we run towards the end of the dream

Why must we fall apart to understand how to fly?
I will find a way, even without wings

Even without wings

Dream
Follow your heart 'til it bleeds
As we run towards the end of the dream
Follow your heart 'til it bleeds
And we've come to the end of the dream
