Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Evanescense

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!).

Evanescense's, "Bring Me To Life"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Spin my box around.
The Real Lyrics:
Bid my blood to run.
The Story: My friend Brittany and I were singing along to this song. We didn't know the words so we said 'spin my box around'. Brittany's stepmom has a friend, Kathy, and when she heard us she started laughing and asked us what the real words were. - Submitted by: Olivia
Evanescense's, "Bring Me To Life"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Without a soul, my spirit's sinking/singing somewhere cold.
The Real Lyrics:
Without a soul, my spirit's sleeping somewhere cold.
The Story: I had to bring a song forward in class and tell something about the part that fitted me the best in this song. Well, I said I liked the part, 'Without a soul, my spirit's sinking somewhere cold' A smart*** b**** in my class detected the fault and made a total fool out of me!!! - Submitted by: Steffie
Evanescense's, "Call Me When You're Sober"
The Misheard Lyrics:
N***** be a man
The Real Lyrics:
Make up your mind
The Story: Was singing this to myself one time, and my girlfriend looked at me like, WTF??? I swear the studio version still sounds to me like what I thought I heard. I was shocked to see the actual lyrics on a web site. Listen to the studio version again before you judge me. I've since heard live performances where it's more clear that I was wrong. - Submitted by: Stupe
