"Snow White Queen" as written by Amy Lee and Terry Balsamo....
Stop light, lock the door
Don't look back
Undress in the dark
And hide from you, all of you

You'll never know
The way your words have haunted me
I can't believe you'd ask these things of me
You don't know me now or never

You belong to me
My snow white queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over

Soon my love, you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore, my love
'Cause all I want is you

Wake up in a dream
Frozen fear
All your hands on me
I can't scream, I can't scream

I can't escape
The twisted way you think of me
I feel you in my dreams
And I don't sleep, I don't sleep

See you belong to me
My snow white queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over

Soon my love, you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore, my love
'Cause all I want is you

Can't save your life
Though nothing I bleed for
Is more tormenting

I'm losing my mind
And you just stand there
And stare as my world divides

You belong to me
My snow white queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over

Soon my love, you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore, my love
'Cause all I want is you

All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you

    General CommentI actually found this song quite sad, and yes this song is about her stalker but also i believe with lines like:"undress in the dark
    and hide from you"
    "Wake up in a dream, frozen fear
    all your hands on me I can't scream"
    "I can't escape the twisted way you think of me
    I feel you in my dreams and I don't sleep"

    She dreams of her stalker rapeing her, or thinking about her in lascivious ways. It makes her incredibly uncomfortable and is twisting her up mentaly.

    Its a very beautiful song but as ive had a stalker before it brought up alot of uncomfortable feelings(and tears) and i can completely symphasize with amy. Its amazing how she can turn something as psycotic as a stalker into an incredible meaningful song.

    My InterpretationI definately see the stalker thing but I thought it was about rape. I tailor it to me by making it my good side vs. my bad side. It is an incredible song on an incredible album by an incredible band.

    Song Meaningi believe its about a stalker, it showing both her and the stalker POV throughout the song.

    "Snow white queen" can be broken down to explain this theory.

    "snow white" is Amy's nickname as she is like snow white with the beautiful pale skin and black hair.
    "Queen" is how the stalker sees her, as someone to worship and bow down to.


    the majority of the song is from Amy (the one being stalked) POV but

    You belong to me
    My snow white queen
    There's nowhere to run
    So let's just get it over

    Soon my love, you'll see
    You're just like me
    Don't scream anymore, my love
    'Cause all I want is you

    - is from the Stalkers point of view.

    My Interpretationi definitely vote that the song is about a rape. when it talks about:
    getting undressed, let just get it over, telling to not scream and nowhere to escape. when it says your just like me is a mental trick to make the other person guilty.

    General CommentThis song is written about a stalker that stalked amy for a while. She had to sleep in hotels some nights because it got so bad. Snow White is her username on evboard, and queen (it is assumed) is in the title because of how a stalker idolises their stalkee, and sees them as perfect.

    General CommentI can't get over how literal Amy's lyrics are now. It's just such a big change...

    I think she gets lower in this song than she did on Fallen or any of the earlier works. Anyone know what notes those are?

    General Commenti can't believe amy used her screenname to make the title of this song... i'd never make a song called hoogli. not that i can write anything more than a few chords.

    soooo did everyone else here get a leaked copy of the new album too? i don't think it's on sale yet.

    General Commentwait a minute... this song says "lock the door"

    it's on an album called "the open door"

    the lyrics are sorta crappy, but i like the instrumentals and drum intro.

    General CommentI can definitley see how this can relate to a stalker situation but for me personally it can describe a rape, molestation, or something along those lines.

    General CommentShe definately hits notes lower than i can remember hearing in any other Evanescence song. (Except Bruce in Lies).

    This song is blunt, but it's good. Not as good as the others though. I pretty much solely listen to this song to hear the line "i don't sleep" and then get sad when it's over.
