Behind the Video : Evanescence "My Heart is Broken"
Frontwoman Amy Lee discusses the meaning behind the band's latest captivating and imaginative music video.
When Evanescence came through Melbourne during their recent Aussie tour, Amy Lee sat down with NovaFM to discuss the concept behind the U.S. goth rock group's "My Heart Is Broken" video.
"The inspiration came from, generally speaking, being trapped; being in a situation knowing you need changed and wanting to break free," she said, backstage at Rod Laver Arena, ahead of the group's massive gig.
"For the video I wanted to give it its own meaning and own feeling. It's about creating an imaginary world where you can escape from the pains of life; from the things that are hard to deal with."
Lee said the harsh reality, and main message of the clip, was that imaginary worlds could never last.
"What I'm trying to say is you have to break back through to reality... It's better to feel things, even when it's painful, than to be all by yourself."
