"Like You" was written in memory of Amy Lee's deceased sister, as was "Hello" on Fallen. Lee stated: "I can't help but be affected by that, and if it's my place to express myself and all the things that have been most deep and the most painful and have just touched me, I feel like it does honor her."
"It is about something that's hard to even talk about but feels good to write about. It’s about my sister who passed away when I was a little girl. I was six years old and she was three. It's affected my life and definitely affected my music writing, and it's made me who I am. It's one of those things that happens early enough in life that it forms you. I think in a lot of ways I made it a thing that I can use in a positive way in my life. I've learned from it and grown up, and I've always felt older. Twenty-four sounds young to me, it's weird.
