This song was written by Amy Hartzler (Lee) and Ben Moody.

Info from Evanescence reference :

Originally recorded on the Whisper EP in 1998. There are currently 6 versions of the song. A demo version of Whisper contains sound clips from the William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet soundtrack. This version begins with a sample intro from "Death Scene" and "O Verona"[1]. There are a few versions of the song floating around the internet and various bootleg discs (see Fake). One version has a burst of noise before the vocals in the intro sample (at approx 0:29). Another version does not have this burst of noise, but has distinct 'skipping' sounds that appear after the 0:30 mark.

At the beginning of the original version, the one on the Whisper EP, there is an introduction which is actually a part of the song itself played backward that culminates in a sound clip from the movie My World Dies Screaming, also known as "Terror in the Haunted House" (1958)[1], the same film some clips on Understanding are taken from.

In the Fallen version, at the ending it says "Servatis a periculum, servatis a maleficum", which is roughly translated from Latin as "Save us from danger, save us from evil".

Lyrics :

Catch me as I fall
Say you're here and it's all over now
Speaking to the atmosphere
No one's here and I fall into myself
This truth drives me into madness
I know I can stop the pain
If I will it all away
If I will it all away

Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

I'm frightened by what I see
But somehow I know
That there's much more to come
Immobilized by my fear
And soon to be blinded by tears
I can stop the pain
If I will it all away
If I will it all away

Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

Fallen angels at my feet
Whispered voices at my ear
Death before my eyes
Lying next to me, I fear

She beckons me shall I give in
Upon my end shall I begin
Forsaking all I've fallen for
I rise to meet the end [I rise to meet my end]

Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

[Servatis a periculum] Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
[Servatis a maleficum] Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
[Servatis a periculum] Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
[Servatis a maleficum] Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

[Servatis a periculum] Don't turn away [Don't give in to the pain]
[Servatis a maleficum] Don't try to hide [Though they're screaming your name]
[Servatis a periculum] Don't close your eyes [God knows what lies behind them]
[Servatis a maleficum] Don't turn out the light [Never sleep, never die]

Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum
Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum
Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum
Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum
Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum
Servatis a periculum
Servatis a maleficum
Servatis a periculum
