"Amazing" as written by and Andrew Allen....
Everyone says you're amazing

Say you don't know how to do it now
So you run
It's not that you're bleeding, but you're through with it now
So you run, so you run

I know that you need it, you can't live alone
So you run, so you run

Everyone says you're amazing now that you're clean
Only you know the real ones are cause you've seen
There's only one question I want to ask is it healing
When you hear everyone say you're amazing
Does anybody ask you

Do you cry in your sleep and do you feel ok
When you run

Thinking it's Doomsday you got to let it go
So you run, so you run

Pretend you don't see it, that we can live a lie
So you run, so you run

Everyone says you're amazing now that you're clean
Only you know the real ones are cause you've seen
There's only one question I want to ask is it healing
When you hear everyone say you're amazing
Does anybody ask you

Cause I know that you're real, amazing, amazing, amazing

Everyone says you're amazing now that you're clean
Only you know the real ones are because you've seen
There's only one question I want to ask is it healing
When you hear everyone say you're amazing

Everyone says you're amazing (I want you to always feel you're amazing)
Everyone says you're amazing (I want you to always feel you're amazing)
(I want you to always feel you're amazing)
You're amazing

    General Commenti love this website! lyrics are about interpretation and everyone's view is so different.

    i was thinking that the song mostly has to do with a personal dealing with substance abuse issues and the fact that troubles like those show you who's in it for the long haul, opposed to the "friends" that don't have time for your problems. I can really relate to this song, that's why i love it so much. But I also think this song looks at the point that some people like to embrace and exploit your sobriety. Drugs are brutal, and if you're addicted it's very hard to get clean. Hence the name, "addiction". Relapses can occur, and these lyrics kinda summarize this.

    "Pretend you don’t see it, that we can live a lie
    When you run, so you run"

    Sometimes other things can trigger relapses, such as stress; the stress of seeing how everyone's left you. Even though you can tell they weren't real friends, it still hurts cuz it was a relationship.

    General CommentI def think is about someone dealing with and getting off substance abuse, and their struggles with letting go of the addiction, realising who people really are and picking themselves up again.

    This song makes me feel sad and upbeat at the same time, just all the negative stuff and that no ones is really there for them, they just say your amazing for being clean and leave you again, but then there is someone there for them saying you should always feel amazing, not just at this moment and because of one thing, and not just because a bunch of people tell you you are. you should always feel amazing about yourself - and that just makes me feel good and i want to happy cry while i dance lol

    and yeah the lyrics are:
    There’s only one question I want to ask - is it HEALING
    When when you hear everyone say you’re amazing
    Does anyone ask you?

    General CommentSo you run

    From the pain to the healing

    From the fake to the real

    From lies to reality

    Don't turn around

    General Commentmusic is great because it touches different emotions for different people.

    While i knew he was talking about addiction when i first heard this song , what originally struck me was the feeling of being told you're amazing (or beautiful or talented or strong) but never truly believing it. That's an issue in addiction and in life. I think the person we're harshest on and most afraid of confronting is ourselves, that probably everyone faces self hatred at some point.

    You should feel amazing all the time, even when you falter and sometimes fail. It's a part of you, you're still amazing.

    General Commentit's like when your in a bad time in life you see that there's no one there except your real friends and like he says

    "Everyone says you’re amazing now that you’re clean
    Only you know who the real ones are cause you’ve seen"

    and when you are in a good time everyone is there but when you need them the most they aren't... only those real ones

    General Commenthmmm. i was thinking that "everyone says your amazing now that you're clean, only you know who the real ones are cause you've seen" meant, someone is out of rehab and are no longer abusing any substances so they are clean, and now they know who their real friends are, and they're amazing now b/c they're not fogged up in the head and are simply happy to be alive.
