"Amazing" as written by and Richie/tyler Supa....
How am I supposed to breathe?
I try to relax, I touch your still frame
So I can watch you closer
And study the ways I believe I belong to you

I scratch at your waistline, your doll hair
I dig up the thought of how your eyes glow
So I make you my religion, my collision, my scape goat
So have I found your secret weak spot, baby?

Can you pretend I'm amazing?
I can pretend I'm amazing
Instead of what we both know
Instead of what we both know
I cut to the punch line, baby
Can you pretend I'm amazing,
Instead of what we both know

Now our history is for sale
And for that I apologize
You see you're my only know-how
The study of when I believe I belonged to you (to you)
You see I've made you into something more delicious, my sweet ghost
So have I found your secret weak spot, baby?

Can you pretend I'm amazing?
I can pretend I'm amazing
Instead of what we both know
Instead of what we both know
I cut to the punch line, baby
Can you pretend I'm amazing,
Instead of what we both know

(I'm sorry, sorry)
(There it goes, back over there)

    General Commenti love this song. I think it's mostly about a young man who is still confused about love. He knows he isnt the perfect boyfriend, but he can't help but fall completely in love with his girl. So he wants her to at least pretend she is as in love.

    or something like that :)

    General Commentnice analogy (SP) lol! Well.. What it says to me is maybe they could have been together for a while and he'd made som any mistakes, and she's having her doubts, and he wants her to pretend things are alright with them, that he is as amazing to her as she is to him. Because he does love her, maybe she is off in her own little world.. Idk.. awesome song, though!

    General Commentto me it means knowing that the one you're with doesn't honestly want you. he/she wants someone else and you're just asking them to pretend that this is what they really want.

    General CommentTo me, this song can have many different interpritations.

    It can be someone who is in love with a girl who he is obsessed with. He keeps trying to get at her to find her "secret weak spot." He believes her to be his only savior from life, and his "only know how," meaning she is the only thing that he knows about. He has clearly confronted her before and she had told him off, making him panic and have trouble breathing, and yet he still wants her to believe he's amazing, "instead of what [they] both know." Also, this has become public, now...as their "history is now for sale," stating that it's in magazines or some sort of newspaper article type dealie.

    It can also be a lost love, as was previously stated. He might also still have one picture of her and he holds it in high regard. He still touches at it wishing she was with him. I still think he would be obsessed with her, by making her his religion.

    It can also be a love who has died by a mistake that he says he had done (if that makes sense). He could be home alone after his girlfriends death wondering how he can still live, or how he's "suppose to breathe." He blames the accident on himself which would make him depressed, and he's asking for forgivness from her. He askes by him wondering if he's still amazing to her, or at least having her pretend it so he can finally move on with life. He has a box full of pictures that he takes out as he prolly finds one at night time that gives the appearance of her eyes glowing (you know what it's like at nighttime with a flash...you get that white thing in your eye and it looks like your eyes are glowing).

    It sounded like I babbled a lot...haha...oh well...I just kept listening to the song and when I heard something that went with what I was saying, I put it in a pile...and when from their...but oh well...hope it's right!

    General Commentmy thoughts...

    he has killed her. I go with the idea that he was obsessed with her although it could be a fight that caused him to kill her. The parts that seem to point to the idea she is dead are the "thought" of her eyes glowing because he will never seem them "glow" again, also the history for sale (their story being told to everyone in court or media) and "my sweet ghost" in the literal sense.

    I also take the "Have I found your sweet spot" to be sarcasm. That is what makes me think about anger in the song. In the sense of, "How do you like me now, I bet that isn't what you expected"

    Slipknot had this sort of song with Vermillion (Part 1 and 2) check it out, great song and will make you see this song in the way I do.

    General Commentsuprised not to many thoughts on this song...great song!!! what i think this song means is---

    the first verse- "How am I supposed to breathe?
    I try to relax. I touch your still frame
    So I can watch you closer
    And study the ways I believe I belong to you
    I scratch at your waist line... your doll hair
    I dig up the thought of how your eyes glow I make you my religion, my collision, an escape goat
    So have I found your secret weak spot, baby?

    i think everything in this verse is sayin how much hes in love with her...how much he wants her...then the last line "so have i found ur secret weak spot" i think its sayin have i made u fall in love with me.

    the chorus i think is him tellin her to jus pretend he does everything right and hes amazing.

    the second verse i feel is she doesnt want him at all nemore bcuz he was too in love with her...hints "our history is for sale, and for that i apoligize." and "the study of when i beleived i belonged to you" is him remember how he once had her but lost it, and hes still in love with her so hes still askin has he found her weak spot, does she love him yet!!!

    maybe wrong but thas what i see!!

    General CommentOkay I like some people's thoughts on this but I'm just going to tell you exactly what it means.
    My friend personally knows Blue October and the man that worte this song. This is the story that inspired it.

    The man was in love with his girl friend very much and they'd been engaged to her for awhile. 2 weeks before the wedding she told him that he no longer amazed him and that she'd been cheating on him fo rTwo years.
    A little while afterwards they became famous.

    Her eyes glowing and everything has nothing to do with him killing her.
    however my favorite bpart is the
    "Now our history is for sale
    And for that I apoligize" He's talking about writing about their history and putting it in a song for people to listen to and buy.

    That's it ya'll I hope this cleared some things up!

    General Commenti think ivycreed is bluffing. the lyrics really seem to suggest that he has killed her, thereby making her into something delicious, his sweet ghost. i think rnjholley is dead on.
