Anneke Van Giersbergen – Wonder 

The former lead singer of The Gathering, she’s one of my favourite female rock singers ever. She’s also the original gothic queen. Tarja Turunen (Nightwish), Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation) & Amy Lee (Evanescence) are all influenced by her and her style of singing. This is her first solo song after years of retiring from metal/rock. How i truly loved it. I spent like 30 min just listening to this awesome ballad over and over again. Her lovely voice makes it an emotionally and hauntingly beautiful song. And the video has a fairytale kind of feel to it. And the lyrics, they just seeped through the heart, makin it bleed slowly as she sang. You gotta listen to it. Then you’ll know what I’m talkin about.

” Whatever you may think of me
  Your know that there’ll never be
  Someone who loves you more than I do.

  One day you will understand
  You had me in the palm of your hand,
  And I will be gone, I leave you to wonder “
