"Lost in Paradise" is a song by American rock band Evanescence. It is the seventh track from their self-titled third studio album, Evanescence. It was written by frontwoman Amy Lee and produced by Nick Raskulinecz. A snippet of song premiered on July 15, 2011 on MTV News. Musically, the song is a rock ballad that begins with piano, strings, and Lee's vocals before the band kicks in during the climax. Lyrically, it is inspired by the struggles in Lee's life.

"Lost in Paradise" was written by Amy Lee while production was handled by Nick Raskulinecz. The song was recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville, Tennessee in 2011. A snippet of the song premiered prior to the release of the album on July 15, 2011 on MTV News. During an interview Lee said, "That's the one that made us cry ... like, literally, just in here, working on it, there have been tears. I love that song. When I was writing it, it wasn't anything; it was just pure, it was just for me. I was literally just writing it for me, to soothe my own feelings by expressing them. And I just thought, 'Piano, vocals, I can record it by myself at my house, and that'll be the track. ... It'll be a B-side somewhere or something.'

She further described the process of the recording of the song: "[But] then ... as we were working on other songs — focusing more on rock songs — I kept listening to it for fun, because it was mine, and I sent it to [producer] Nick [Raskulinecz] and I was like, 'I want you to listen to this. ... The more I listen to it, the more I think it means something'. And he, instantly, was like, 'We have to do that song.' And it was his idea to bring the band into it, and at first, I was totally like, 'I don't get that.' But once we did, it just blew the thing wide open, in a way I had never thought about before. It's perfect; it's meant to be the way it is." Lee went to Toronto's Liberty Studios on August 22, to preview five mastered songs from Evanescence to a selected crowd of thirty people. "Lost in Paradise" was one of the five previewed songs.

Lyrics:

I've been believing in something so distant
As if I was human
And I've been denying this feeling of hopelessness
In me, in me

All the promises I made
Just to let you down
You believed me, but I broke it

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

As much as I like the best not too exist
It still does
And as much as I like to feel like I belong here
I'm just as scared as you

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

Run away, run away
One day we won't feel this pain anymore

Take it all the way
Shadows of you
Cause they won't let me go

So I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

Alone, I'm lost in paradise

Enjoy!
