"Amy's Song" as written by and Joshua Ryan Radin....
You asked me to write a tune
all about things that go wrong and then
you asked me to come home soon
to the place where i belong
but you stand on the other side
of the line in this place and
you can't see me you are blind and
this you can't fake
no this you can't fake

and sometimes, sometimes i wanna be
i scream that i wanna be anyone but me

and i don't know if i can write about
chosen wars and the things you feel
and i don't know if i can sing aloud
closing doors show me what's real
but i know when i close my eyes
late at night there's only one thing
a night showing that she can't lie
it's your fight show me something
can you show me something?

and sometimes, sometimes i wanna be
i scream that i wanna be anyone but me

what do you want me to say
all i know is love,
it's okay
i'll write what i know
you do the same
tell me i'm sane

and sometimes, sometimes i wanna be
i scream that i wanna be anyone but me

    General CommentI don't exactly know what the song is about, but I love his voice/emotion on "and sometimes, sometimes I wanna be.. I scream that I wanna be anyone but me."

    General Commenti went to his show last night and he said he wrote this song while he was on a train, admiring an older woman who was "way out of my league". it is about wanting someone and the fear and yearning that comes along with wanting them to want you back...kinda

    General Commentamy is a generic name so it can really be about any girl. it's about falling in love and you know you're never goint to get her.

    General CommentIt sounds to me like he's writing a song about a girlfriend who is trying to take control of him creatively, so he feels. She's telling him to write about things other than the overdone topic of love and heartbreak and he's saying, "Write what you know and this is what I know". He's trying to tell her that love is the subject he knows most and feels he can write about best while she's wanting him to write on topics she deems more profound.
