Amy's little sister died when Amy was six, and Amy wrote Hello because of it. Is like you also for her sister? If you check in the lyric book, it says "I long to be like you, lie cold in the ground like you, there's room inside for two, and I'm not grieving for you.." Well, later in the song, she makes a noise that adds to the line, and sounds like, " I long to be like you, sis.." Any answers?

yeah i believe this song is about her sister. i heard somewhere that she wrote a song about her sister for this album too. so i would think from the lyrics "i long to be like you, sis" that it would be this song.

Yeah, she wrote this about her sister. It's on wikipedia.org under The Open Door's article.

Yes, it is. Amy herself confirmed it in an interview.

I actually noticed that line the first time I heard that song, before I even knew her sister had died. It was creepy.
