General information

Written by: A. Lee, B. Moody, D. Hodges and J. LeCompt

Taking Over Me is the eighth track from Evanescence's debut album, Fallen. It was originally recorded during the 2001-2002 demo sessions before being chosen for the album.

Amy's quote about the song:

Vin1.jpg Taking Over Me is about obsession. Like you're obsessed with someone who you believe is the one for you. I don't know. It's about obsession. Vin2.jpg


The band stopped performing this song during the start of The Open Door tour, but they played it again during the Family Values Tour in 2007. They also played the song at the NYC Secret Show[1] and the Maquinaria Festival show in 2009.

Lyrics

Fallen and Fallen pre-master version

You don't remember me but I remember you
I lie awake and try so hard not to think of you
But who can decide what they dream?
And dream I do

[I believe] I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
[I believe] I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

Have you forgotten all I know
And all we had?
You saw me mourning my love for you
And touched my hand
I knew you loved me, then

[I believe] I believe in you [I believe in you]
I'll give up everything just to find you
[I believe] I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

I look in the mirror and see your face
If I look deep enough
So many things inside that are just like you are taking over

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

[I believe] I believe in you [I believe in you]
I'll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

Taking over me
You're taking over me
Taking over me
Taking over me

Demo version #1

You don't remember me but I remember you
I lie awake and try so hard not to think of you
But who [who] can [can] decide what they dream?
And dream I do

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
[I believe] I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

Have you forgotten all I know
And all we had?
You saw me mourning my love for you [mourning my love for you]
And touched my hand
I knew you loved me, then

[I believe] I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
[I believe] I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

I look in a mirror and see your face
If I look deep enough
So many things inside that are just like you are taking over

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

[I believe] I believe in you [I believe in you]
I'll give up everything just to find you
[I believe] I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

[I believe] I believe in you
You're taking over me

Demo version #2

You don't remember me but I remember you
I lie awake and try so hard not to think of you
But who [who] can [can] decide what they dream?
And dream I do

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you [I believe]
I have to be with you to live, to breathe [to live, to breathe]
You're taking over me

Have you forgotten all I know
And all we had?
You saw me mourning my love for you [mourning my love for you]
And touched my hand
I knew you loved me, then

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you [I believe]
I have to be with you to live, to breathe [to live, to breathe]
You're taking over me

I look in a mirror and see your face
If I look deep enough
So many things inside that are just like you are taking over

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live, to breathe
You're taking over me

[I believe] I believe in you [I believe in you]
I'll give up everything just to find you [I believe]
I have to be with you to live, to breathe [to live, to breathe]
You're taking over me

[I believe] I believe in you
