A/N: Ok, So I promised myself that I wouldn't ever write a one-shot, because I tend to avoid reading those… they leave me wanting more. I also promised myself that I wouldn't ever write a song-fic, because those tend to annoy me. I always skip past the lyrics and only read the action. And last of all, I promised myself that I wouldn't write a Twilight fanfic because I'm afraid I'll butcher the characters and that everyone will hate me. But guess what? I am breaking all of my promises and writing a one-shot song-fic about Bella and Edward. I'm using the lyrics to the song "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence. Here it goes, and don't hate me if I get something wrong. Don't laugh too hard, please. I do this from both Bella and Edward's perspectives.

Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight, I don't own Edward, I don't own Bella, I don't own Evanescence or Bring Me to Life… I don't even own the computer I'm typing this on (my mom does) so don't sue me please.

On to the story…


Bella's POV:

How can you see into my eyes like open doors

I ran like I had never run before, away from my life and anything associated with it and the pain from which I couldn't escape.

Leading you down into my core, where I've become so numb

I ran blindly, running into branches and bushes and tripping over roots. The pain hadn't completely caught up with me yet, and I knew if I stopped that it would hit me full force.

Without a soul (without)

Oh, to be without a soul would be bliss, as long as I was with Edward. Why can't he understand that I don't care about an eternity without a soul? I would rather die a thousand deaths than lose him again… even though I already had.

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

Home. Home was anywhere where Edward was… until this happened. Fresh tears welled up in my eyes as I thought about what I had just seen… and I tripped over another root and hit my head, hard, against a tree. I stayed on the ground this time, not bothering to get up. It wasn't worth running, because that image would always haunt me, the image of Edward kissing another girl… another vampire. He kissed her with a passion that he had never used with me, and I knew he loved her.

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside

I closed my eyes and begged for darkness… for the end. I had lost Edward before, right after my birthday, and I wasn't sure I wanted to live. I had survived, Edward had returned, but now he belonged to someone else, and I begged for the end to come. I couldn't live without him.

(I Can't Wake up)
Wake me up inside

Darkness didn't come like I wanted it to- only images of Edward and the other vampire plagued my thoughts. I wasn't aware of my surroundings, like I was unconscious, but I still saw those terrible images.

(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark

The blissful darkness finally rose to claim me, and I gladly succumbed to it, but not before whispering the name which hurt so much and caused the gaping hole in my chest to open agian. "Edward."

(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become

Without Edward I was nothing, and once I knew he wasn't mine, I knew what I had to do. Only Edward could save me, but a bitter feeling told me that he wouldn't. I drifted in and out of consciousness, vaguely noticing that I was loosing blood, and a lot of it, from the gash on my head from where I hit the tree. I started to feel cold, and I knew that the end was near. I smiled bitterly; I wouldn't suffer for much longer.

Now that I know what I'm without
You can't just leave me

He left me for another girl, left me for the pain and anguish to claim me.


Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life

His intoxicating sent, his eyes, every perfect detail about him burned in my memory as I drifted. I couldn't focus on anything but him.

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I Can't Wake up)

It was getting harder to concentrate, harder to remember where I was. I remembered running, and why, always why… but I couldn't remember how far I had run. I couldn't wake up from my depression, and consciousness was trying to escape me too.


Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark

"Bella!" I knew I was just imagining my Angel's voice calling my name; it was just another hallucination like I craved so often before after he left.


(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run

My blood was running, running right out of my body, though it had slowed, that much I could tell.


(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become
Bring me to life

It started to rain, and the water filtered down through the leaves, shocking me back into the land of the living. I sat up carefully and tried to move to a dryer spot. I was already miserable enough emotionally; I didn't need to be wet too.

(I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside)
Bring me to life

I knew Edward loving me was too good to be true. Our love had been a lie the entire time, and I realized now that there was nothing there from him. Only my unrequited love… I looked around my surroundings and realized where I was. An idea came to me then, and I pushed myself up off the ground and started running again, stumbling towards my destination.

Edward's POV:

Frozen inside without your touch,
Without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead

Both literally and figuratively, Bella is my life. I may be a dead vampire, but Bella brings out the human side in me- the side which makes me feel so alive. After Alice told me what she saw Bella planning I left as quickly as I could, following her scent through the woods. I'd have to explain what she saw- it wasn't what she thought it was. I didn't even care for that girl, but she'd loved me. She asked me to kiss her once, like I loved her, and then she would never bother me again. I thought about it and reluctantly obliged, but now I felt so stupid for doing it. Bella had seen and misunderstood.

(All this time I can't believe I couldn't see)
(Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me)

Bella had been there,been there and seen me kiss the girl, and she was right there, in front of my window, waiting there because she and Alice were planning a surprise for me and she had to be outside so I wouldn't notice her. I hadn't noticed, alright…

I've been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything

Looking back, it seems like a thousand years passed by in my life before Bella. She's everything to me, and I love her more than she will ever know. When she came into my life, it was like I woke up and opened my eyes to the world for the first time.


(Without a thought, without a voice, without a soul)

I had lost my voice because of the fear that Bella would go through with her plan. I ran as fast as I had ever run before, trying to reach her. I ran so fast, and I was so caought up in my thoughts that I somehow lost her scent and had to run back to backtrack. I was loosing precious time in which I could be saving Bella.

Bella's POV:

I stood at the edge of a cliff, ready to jump. My mouth smiled, despite my order not to. I could end my life and not feel any more pain.


Don't let me die here

I thought of Charley and hesitated. How could I leave my family behind? Would my death cause them the same grief that I was feeling right now? I stepped back, away from the cliff as I pondered.


(There must be something more!)
Bring me to life

Oh, Edward, Why did you have to kiss her?! I flung myself from the top of the cliff and yelled, "I'll always love you, Edward Cullen!" I closed my eyes as the wind rushed past me, ushering me closer to my final peace.

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I Can't Wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can't wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I've become
Bring me to life

I could tell the ground was coming closer. I knew I would die soon. As I came closer, I realized I regretted my decision. I'd never see Edward's face again, never feel his cold skin, never be dazzled by those eyes… even if he didn't love me, I still wanted to see him one more time before I died. But, despite my situation, I couldn't feel sorry for myself. Death was near, and I was unnaturally calm. I squeezed my eyes shut a second before I knew I would hit the ground.

(I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside!)

"I'll always love you, Edward." I whispered again.


"I'll always love you too." He whispered as he caught me. I hit his granite arms with a grunt and looked up into his loving eyes. They held only love for me, and in that moment I understood then that it had all been a misunderstanding. I started to cry as I clung to him and buried my face in his chest. I had been so close to never seeing My Angel again, and I realized now how foolish I was to think that he didn't love me. He seemed to understand my pain, so he didn't lecture me as he held me close and ran back to his house.

Bring me to life.


A/N: Ok, so there it is. I hope anyone who reads it enjoys it. I'm not sure how good it is, so please let me know if I can change it to make it better. I'm open to criticism. Please, tell me if it totally sucks, just so I know. Thank you for taking time to read it, and please, please, PLEASE review. :)
