Informazioni generali

Scritta da: A. Lee e W. B. Hunt

Yeah Right is the fourth track and fourth single from Evanescence's upcoming fifth studio album, The Bitter Truth. The title was registered on BMI repertoire in late June 2020.[1] It was one of the first four songs recorded for the album in early 2020. It was released on December 4, 2020 as a single, along with the album's pre-order.

The song was originally recorded on the 2010 Lillywhite sessions for the band's third album, but was scrapped by their then label, along with much of what they wrote and recorded for what would become their 2011 album, Evanescence. Amy explained it in an Instagram post and how it was revamped with a new perspective:

Vin1.jpg Yeah Right was a song I started 10 years ago with our good friend Will B. Hunt (the other one! Synthesis/DTM etc). After our self titled album went in a different direction and this song was set aside, I made a promise to myself that I wasn’t going to give up on it. I knew it was worth fighting for. Perspectives shifted, lyrics got a new twist, the stars aligned and it finally clicked into place for us as a band on this record. I couldn’t have imagined it like this back then, and I’m so glad we waited for it to become what it is now. I’m so proud! Thank you Will, thank you to my ferocious band for bringing the fire and to Nick Raskulinecz for pushing us to a whole new level.[2] Vin2.jpg

Testo

I’m the widow
On the tip tippy toppy of the highest high of low
And I’m the shadow
of the first little flower on the brightest patch of snow
Happiness can be hard to find
I’m so slap silly happy everybody wants to take mine

Yeah right
That sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we’ll get paid
More than it was worth to sell our souls
Yeah right

Yeah I’m a rock star
I’m a queen resurrected just as messed up as before
twist the knife hard
just makes it easier to tell you I don’t need you anymore

Life’s a game, till you lose- then what?
I’m reaching a new level of not giving a fuck

Yeah right
That sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we’ll get paid more than it was worth to sell our souls

Tell me how is the real world treating you?
Is that my fault too?
My one mistake was giving more and more and more

Yeah right
Baby that sounds nice
Everything we ever wanted and more
Someday we’ll get paid
More than it was worth to sell our souls, sell our souls

Yeah right
That sounds nice
More than it was worth to sell our souls…
