"Where Will You Go" is a song by Evanescence. The first version was released on Evanescence EP, while the other version was remade later on with different arrangements for Origin.

Composition

The original EP version starts out with a slow tempo and features no guitars. The organ is the primary (and only) instrument used throughout the song.

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 tracks are also smoother, with some changed vocal lyrics.

Lyrics

Origin version

You're too important for anyone
You play the role of all you long to be
But 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 don't want to 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
With no one left to save you from yourself
You can't escape the truth
I realize you're afraid
But you can't abandon everyone
You can't escape
You can't 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 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 truthI 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

Yeah yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah


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 can't escape

How ever did you manage to push away
From every living thing you come across
So afraid that anyone would 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'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 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
