"Where Will You Go?" 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 think this means growing up. When u dont have ur parents there to help you anymore. When they cant 'save' you. I dont know...thats just what i get from it.

    General Commentok i always pictured this song as the singer being a girl in jr. high or high school (k i know Amy Lee is outta high school) who is not the most popular person in the school. The subject of the song is one of the girls or boys who is very popular. The singer realizes that the subject is hiding their trueselves. They are afraid that if they do show who they really are they will not be as popular as they were before, so they hid in lies., but they are also sad b/c they are not who they appear. The singer realizes this and wants to help them, she looks past those lies and sees that this person needs help and offers help but the subject is afraid and refuses her help

    General CommentTo me it sounds like she is speaking to herself. How she acts like she is happy and more important then everyone else, but inside she cries and no one knows. Later on she says:
    "i am 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 "
    She says she is sick of no one understand what she is saying and then goes into saying "you can't live your whole life along" she switches to talking about herself to talking to someone else, and I feel that she is talking about herself in 3rd person and she is mad at herself because she acts one way and no one notices how she really feels.

    General Commenti think this song has to do with someone telling an someone who just broke up with them, that they see theyre hurting and theyre wondering what theyre going to do without them there to help them. i dont know, something like that, thats what it meant to me,
