What You Want Lyrics - Evanescence

Review The Song (1)



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
‘Til we crash
We're forever spiraling
Down, down, down, down

Hello, hello
It's 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

"What You Want" is a song by American rock band Evanescence. The freedom-themed song was written by Amy Lee, Terry Balsamo and Tim McCord and was included on their self-titled third studio album Evanescence (2011). It was described as the heaviest and most different Evanescence song and according to Lee, the song talks about the experiences with her fans and her realizations about the things that she should do. Musically "What You Want" is an up-tempo song which uses several instruments in its music, notably guitars, synthesizers and drums. Lyrically, the song talks about a relationship that can't work despite the love between the pair together.

A snippet of the song premiered on MTV News in July, and the song was released on August 9, 2011 through Wind-up Records as the first single from the album. Upon its release, "What You Want" spawned mostly positive review from music critics who praised its loud sound, Lee's powerful and soaring vocals during the song and the musical hook. However, some reviewers noticed that the song was not a big departure from their old material. The song charted at number 68 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in several component charts. It also charted at number 55 on the Canadian Hot 100.

The accompanying music video for "What You Want" started filming on July 30, 2011 in Brooklyn, New York, and it was directed by Meiert Avis. It shows the band performing the song live in a small warehouse and Lee running in various locations. Upon its release on the Internet on September 9, 2011, the video received positive response from music critics who generally praised the imagery and noted similarities with Evanescence's music video for "Bring Me to Life" (2003). "What You Want" was performed live for the first time on MTV and later on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. From Wikipedia
