"I was in a relationship and I was completely unhappy. But I was hiding it. I was being completely abused and I was trying to cover it up; I wouldn’t even admit it to myself. So then I had spoken maybe 10 or 15 words to this Josh Hartzler. He looked at me and said, 'Are you happy?' And I lied, I said I was fine. And I felt like he could just see straight into my soul. That inspired the whole song.'' - Amy Lee
''It's about waking up to all the things you've been missing for so long. One day someone said something that made my heart race for a second and I realized that for months I'd been numb, just going through the motions of life." - Amy Lee
