General Information

Written by: A. Lee, T. Balsamo

The Open Door: Track 5


An article describes it as "diving into the soundtrack of a dark movie, with Amy’s mumbling and singing that lightens us up. The very gloomy atmosphere lasts throughout the whole song. DJ Lethal’s samples once again perfectly match with the song."

Described as the "poppiest" track on the album.

Amy's description of the song: "It's about breaking up. There are a lot of relationship struggles on the record. I always write about what I was feeling, because then it's genuine. I was struggling with a relationship and felt like a waste of space. The first lyric says it all, 'If you want to live, let live/ If you want to go, let go/ What are we doing here?/ Because I can live without you.'" VH1.com

Lyrics

If you want to live, let live
If you want to go, let go
I'm not afraid to dream- to sleep, sleep forever
I don't need to touch the sky
I just want to feel that high
And you refuse to lift me

Guess it wasn't real after all
Guess it wasn't real all along

If I fall and all is lost
It's where I belong

If you want to live, let live
If you want to go, let go
I'm never gonna be your sweet, sweet surrender

Guess it wasn't real after all
Guess it wasn't real all along

If I fall and all is lost
No light to lead the way
Remember that all alone is where I belong

In a dream
Will you give your love to me
Beg my broken heart to beat
Save my life
Change my mind

If I fall and all is lost
No light to lead the way
Remember that all alone is where I belong
