General Information

Written by: A. Lee and T. Balsamo and T. McCord

"What You Want" is the first track and the first single released from Evanescence's self-titled third album. It features heavy riffs, strong vocals, and has a theme of freedom.

In an interview with MTV news, Amy Lee said:

Vin1.jpg It's about freedom — that's definitely a constant theme on the record — but, it's like Evanescence, and me, and my relationship with the music and the fans, and coming to that [realization] of "This is what I'm supposed to do ... I want to do this," and when it says, "Remember who you really are," that's exactly everything you could assume it means. Vin2.jpg


A sample of "What You Want" was released on MTV's website on Monday 11th July. [1] The single wsa released August 9th 2011.

Another 30 second sample can be heard on Amazon.com. [2]

Evanescence premiered What You Want live on MTV, Monday 8th August at 7:54pm. ET/PT. [3]

Lyrics

Do what you what you want
If you have a dream for better
Do what you what you want
'Til you don’t want it anymore
(remember who you really are)

Do what you what you want
Your world’s closing in on you now (it isn’t over)
Stand and face the unknown
(got to remember who you really are)

Every heart in my hands like a pale reflection

Hello, hello, remember me?
I’m everything you can’t control
Somewhere beyond the pain
There must be a way to believe
We can break through

Do what you what you want
You don’t have to lay your life down (it isn’t over)
Do what you what you want
'Til you find what you’re looking for
(got to remember who you really are)

But every hour slipping by screams that I have failed you

Hello, Hello, remember me?
I’m everything you can’t control
Somewhere beyond the pain
There must be a way to believe

Hello, hello, remember me?
I’m everything you can’t control
Somewhere beyond the pain
There must be a way to believe

There’s still time
Close your eyes
Only love will guide you home
Tear down the walls and free your soul
Till we crash we’re forever spiraling
Down, down, down, down

Hello, hello, its only me
Infecting everything you love
Somewhere beyond the pain
There must be a way to believe

Hello, Hello, remember me?
I’m everything you can’t control
Somewhere beyond the pain
There must be a way to learn forgiveness

Hello, Hello, remember me?
I’m everything you can’t control
Somewhere beyond the pain
There must be a way to believe
We can break through

Remember who you really are
Do what you what you want
