Evanescence – Broken

I wanted you to know
I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph;
I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

Because I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

You’ve gone away
You don’t feel me here, anymore

The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There’s so much left to learn,
and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

Cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

You’ve gone away
You don’t feel me here, anymore

I found this great cracked porcelain doll tutorial in a magazine some time ago and this was my first attempt using Gimp
I recently aquired Photoshop CS3 and thought I would give it another go.

    So fabulous! I really do prefer the B & W because it makes the crack stand out more clearly, as it is not overshadowed by the hair and lip colors. Exceptionally great!

  • thanks so much Sandra, the B&W is a little darker/gothic looking and not to everyones taste
