Anything For You Lyrics
Can you forget the world that you thought you knew
If you want me,
Come and find me
Nothing's stopping you so please release me
All your lies
Just pretend you love me

I used to feel this way about my best friend. I thought I was in love with him, but it , much to my dismay, wasn't reciprocated. I tried desperately to find out why he didn't feel the same way. His dad is a bishop, so he is a very strict Mormon. I thought if I changed myself to be the person he wanted that we could be together. I didn't care if he didn't love the real me, I just wanted him to feel the way I felt about him.
But time went by, I accepted the reality of the situation and eventually I got over him. That seems to be what this song is about, the desperation that one goes into as a result of unrequited love. In short, it sucks. I wish I'd known about this song when I was still going through it, I feel like it would've helped a lot.

This is sad, it's about her being desperate for someones love. She will do anything he wants and believe his lies to win his affection. Even if it's not real. "I'll do anything for you... just pretend you love me."

She just wants to be loved and even if that means they don't love her back.
Its an earlier version of Lacrymosa, with a different feel. If you listen you can here the chorus singing the original "Lacrimosa" by Mozart just like in Lacrymosa. Personally I love this song, and obviously is about a desperation for a love to the extent that it wouldn't matter if it was fake. And also that 'she'd' do "Anything for You" (its right in the title ^_^)
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

It's about amy (all songs are to do with her real feelings and what she is feeling at the moment so all song have amy in it) wanting someone to love her that doesn't love her back so she would do anything for them for them to show some kind of affection for her, so amy goes away and tell the person she loves "if you want me, come and find me, nothings stopping you so please release me" and if that person finds her, her feelings of being unloved by that person will be "released"
