"Where Will You Go (First Edition)" as written by and Amy Lee David Hodges....
You're too important for anyone
There's something wrong with everything you see
But I, I know who you really are
You're the one who cries when you're alone

[Chorus]
But where will you go
With no one left to save you from yourself
You can't escape
You can't escape

You think that I can't see right through your eyes
Scared to death to face reality
No one seems to hear your hidden cries
You're left to face yourself alone

[Chorus]

I realize you're afraid
But you can't abandon everyone
You can't escape
You don't want to escape

I'm so sick of speaking words that no one understands
Is it clear enough that you can't live your whole life all alone
I can hear you in a whisper
But you can't even hear me screaming

[Chorus]

I realize you're afraid
But you can't reject the whole world
You can't escape
You won't escape
You can't escape
You don't want to escape

    General CommentI really love this song, however, she doesn't sing it all that well...she's somewhat off key on parts of it.
    It makes a little more sense and realisticness, while the second version says, "You think that I can't see right through your eyes scared to face reality. No one seems to hear your hidden cries, and you're left to face yourself alone".
    This one kind of turns it around and makes this person the bad one. Amy's more singing about this person's bad qualities with a little less pity than she does in the second version.

    General CommentFirst i would like to say that I would like to see my_tourniguet do better when that was done back in 1999 or so. I have all her songs.....
    This song really relates to alot of peoples lifes i think. Its almost as if your lost in your own world and you don't know where to go...... and the truth is what your trying to escape becuase its so bad.

    General CommentIt's good, but the other version is much better in my opinion. I agree, this is less 'let me help you' and more 'I just to help here, geez!' And she is a bit off-key, but I doubt I could have done much better.

    General CommentErm, I agree with what everybody else said. This version was released on the Evanescence EP, and you can really tell by listening to it that Amy's gotten better since then. This gives me hope that with enough practice, I too can become a rock star!

    ...Okay, maybe not. But yeah. =p

    General CommentShe IS a tad off key, especially when she says "You pretend you hate them first". But anyhow, I LOOOVE this song. I think it's actually about someone who acts all important when people are around but is depressed when they're alone, and finally, when people know enough about them, they leave him to fend for himself instead of giving him attention. And the "you don't want to escape" and the "you won't escape" thing is about not being able to escape the attention you want, but not wanting to escape it either because the person is greedy. A truly sad, haunting song....
