General information

Written by: Lindsey Stirling, Dia Frampton and Mark Maxwell

Shatter Me is a song composed and performed by American violinist Lindsey Stirling for her second studio album of the same name, and features vocals from Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.

According to Lindsey, she had never heard of Lzzy Hale or Halestorm before, but knew that she needed a rock-star female vocalist for the song. In an interview, Lindsey stated: "It was so important for me to find the right singer for it, because I had in my mind the idea of who I wanted. I love vocalists like Hayley Williams from Paramore and Amy Lee from Evanescence, so I really wanted a powerhouse, rock-star female vocalist.[1]"

When Evanescence and Lindsey toured together in Summer 2018, Amy sang Lzzy's vocals live. Watch a video of the performance here.

Lyrics

I pirouette in the dark
I see the stars through a mirror
Tired mechanical heart
Beats 'til the song disappears

Somebody shine a light
I'm frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me
So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me
Shatter me!
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me

If only the clockwork could speak
I wouldn't be so alone
We'd burn every magnet and spring
And spiral into the unknown

Somebody shine a light
I'm frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me
So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me
Shatter me!
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me

If I break the glass then I'll have to fly
There's no one to catch me if I take a dive
I'm scared of changing
The days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in gray
If I break the glass then I'll have to fly
There's no one to catch me if I take a dive
I'm scared of changing
The days stay the same
The world is spinning but only in gray
(Only...)

Somebody shine a light
I'm frozen by the fear in me
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me
So cut me from the line
Dizzy, spinning endlessly
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me
Shatter me!
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me
Me...!
Shatter me!
Somebody make me feel alive and shatter me!
