General Information

Written by: A. Lee and T. Balsamo

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: [1]

Vin1.jpg 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. Vin2.jpg


The song was released as a radio single in Colombia, as announced in an article of October 18, 2007 [2].

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
