The thunder rolled and the lightning lit up the sky. Bryon Madden lied on his bed, fighting the pain that was inside of him. All the torment that he held inside was trying to break free, but he won't let it. The radio was playing "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence.

"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 sleeping somewhere cold.Until you find it there and lead it back home."

The song touched home to Bryon. He wanted to know how she could look in his eyes, and see all the pain that he was going through. How did she know what was going on in him?

"She doesn't know anything about me," Bryon said to no one. He paced his room with the radio still playing.

"Wake me up inside.Wake me up inside.Call my name and save me from the dark.Bid my blood to run.save me from the nothing I've become."

Bryon sighed. He wanted her to wake him up.to see what's happy, not what's bad. He wanted her to call him, to comfort him, to make his blood run warm through his veins. He was a nothing, and he did want her to save him.

"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."

The chorus started again. Bryon wanted to know how she could leave him there.alone and in pain. He needed her. She was the only person to make him whole inside, to make him alive.

"All this time I can't believe I could 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, with out a soul.Don't let me die here.There must be something more.To bring me to life."

"It's your entire fault, Bryon!" he screamed into the night. "You are the reason she walked out!" He picked up his lamp and threw it across the room. He turned around a punched the wall, feeling immediate pain in his hand. He fell to his knees, weeping like a child. He felt empty with out her. He didn't see that she was there in front of him. He just had to open his eyes. He felt like he died when she left. He wanted her to bring him back to life and to live again.

"Wake me up inside.Wake me up inside.Call my name and save me from the dark.Bid my blood to run.save me from the nothing I've become.Bring me to life.I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside.Bring me to life."

The song faded. Bryon knew that it would never be true. She will never come back, will never save him again. He was going to be a nothing forever.
