General information

Written by: A. Lee, B. Moody and D. Hodges

Where Will You Go is the first track from Evanescence's first EP, Evanescence EP. A newer version was later published on their demo album, Origin.

David Hodges sings backup vocals on the Origin version. The original EP version is more of a confessional setting, with organs in the background, whereas the Origin version uses electronic sound effects and has a quicker tempo, almost giving the song a dance-beat with background organ sounds. The vocals on the Origin track are also smoother, with changed vocal lyrics, but lyrics text was left unchanged from EP version: "There's something wrong with everything you see," as to what is sung "You play the role of all you long to be."

Lyrics

Origin version

You're too important for anyone
You play the role of all you long to be
But I [I] I know who you really are
You're the one who cries when you're alone

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

But where will you go [where will you go?]
With no one left to save you from yourself
You can’t escape the truth
I realize you're afraid [I realize]
But you can't abandon everyone
You can't escape
You don't want to escape

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

Where will you go [where will you go?]
With no one left to save you from yourself?
You can't escape the truth
I realize you're afraid [I realize]
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

[Yeah, yeah, yeah]
Yeah, yeah, yeah [ah]
Yeah, yeah... yeah [yeah yeah] [ah]
Yeah, yeah... yeah [yeah yeah] [ah]
Yeah, yeah... yeah [yeah yeah] [ah]
Yeah, yeah... yeah [yeah yeah] [ah]

Evanescence EP version

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

Where will you go
With no one left to save you from yourself?
You can't escape
You don't want to escape

However did you manage to push away
From every living thing you've come across
So afraid that anyone will hate you
You pretend you hate them first

But where will you go
With no one left to save you from yourself?
You can't escape the truth
I realize you're afraid
But you can't refrain from everything
You can't escape
You can't escape

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 when you whisper
But you can't even hear me screaming

And where will you go
With no one left to save you from yourself?
You can't escape the truth
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
