[Evanescence]
Do what you what you want, if you have a dream for better
Do what you what you want till 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 till 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
Till 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 want, you want.

    Do what you want, but know everything you do, will effect someone, or someone you care about. Just bare in mind what you want, is effected by others if you let it. Being individually speacial or being uniqe is a great thing. Do what you want
