General Information

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

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

In an interview with MTVnews, 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 July the 11th. [1] The single will be released August 9th 2011.

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

Lyrics

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
