General Information

Written by: A. Lee, T. Balsamo

The Open Door: Track 3

Described as a song about Amy's "plea for perspective from the expectation of young fans" by Evanescence.com.

The guitars take off whilst Amy’s voice gets lost between sampled mumbling and a guitar riff by Balsamo. The vocals get more and more synthetic whilst the guitars get mixed with an electronic supplement. A track that is very easily distinguished from Evanescence’s repertoire.

Amy's description of the song: VH1.com

"I live for the rock songs. With the line-up changing, I think a lot of people thought it would be more of the My Immortal stuff. But My Immortal was Ben [Moody]'s song! I was always trying to pull us in a crazier direction. Songs like Weight of the World and Sweet Sacrifice and All That I'm Living For are so amazing to me because of the adrenaline. Especially when we play them live."

Lyrics

Feels like the weight of the world
Like God in Heaven gave me a turn
Don't cling to me, I swear I can't fix you
Still in the dark, can you fix me?

Freefall, freefall, all through life

If you love me, then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be
She's nothing to me

Feels like the weight of the world
Like all my screaming has gone unheard
And oh I know you don't believe in me
Safe in the dark, how can you see?

Freefall, freefall, all through life

If you love me, then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be

If you love me, then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I was

If you love me, then let go of me
I won't be held down by who I used to be
