Snow White Queen by Evanescence

Song Writing and Meaning

"Snow White Queen" was inspired after Lee had experiences with stalkers.[1] She stated, "My privacy had been completely invaded and there were a couple of nights where I couldn't stay at my house. So I wrote a song about it through the eyes of the stalker, and with my perspective, too." Entertainment Weekly's Jon Dolan found similarities between the song and Tori Amos' "Me and a Gun". It uses several industrial beats into its composition.

Amy Also sings her lowest note in this song during the line: "Can't escape the twisted way you think of me."

Lyrics

Stoplight lock the door
Don't look back
Undress in the dark
And hide from you
All of you

You'll never know the way your words have haunted me
I can't believe you'd ask these things of me [ever and ever]
You don't know me [ever and ever]
Now or ever

You belong to me
My Snow White Queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over
Soon I know you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore my love
'cause all I want is you

Wake up in a dream
Frozen fear
All your hands on me
I can't scream
I can't scream

I can't escape the twisted way you think of me
I feel you in my dreams and I don't sleep [ever and ever]
I don't sleep [ever and ever]

You belong to me
My snow white queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over
Soon I know you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore my love
'Cause all I want is you

I can't save your life
Though nothing I bleed for is more tormenting
I'm losing my mind
And you just stand there
And stare
as my world divides

You belong to me
My snow white queen
There's nowhere to run
So let's just get it over
Soon I know you'll see
You're just like me
Don't scream anymore my love
'cause all I want is you<br

All I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you
[Forever and ever, ever and ever]
