"Amy" as written by and Billie Joe Armstrong Tre Cool....
Is your heart singing out of tune
Are your eyes just singing the blues
Dirty records from another time
Some blood stains on your shoes

No one really knows about your soul
And I barely really know your name
Burning rhythms and posting lies
And a bunch of fools drown in shame

Amy don't you go
I want you around
Singin' woah, please don't go
Do you wanna be a friend of mine?
Do you wanna be a friend of mine?

Did you tattoo a lucky charm
To keep you out of harms way?
Warding off all evil signs
But it never really kept you safe

Now you're too young for the golden age
'Cause the record bin's been replaced
Twenty seven, gone without a trace
And you walked away from your drink

Amy don't you go
I want you around
Singin' woah, please don't go
Do you wanna be a friend of mine?
Do you wanna be a friend of mine?

Amy please don't go
Amy please don't go

Is your heart singing out of tune
Are you eyes just singing the blues?
Dirty records from another time
Some blood stains on your shoes

May I have this last dance
By chance if we should meet?
Can you write me a lullaby?
So we can sing you to sleep

Amy don't you go
I want you around
Singin' woah, please don't go
Do you wanna be a friend of mine?
Do you wanna be a friend of mine?
Do you wanna be a friend of mine?

    General CommentBillie confirmed that it's a tribute to Amy Winehouse. He said he's never met her, but he had an affinity to her through the music she made. He felt that she was the last one left who had some kind of connection to the days of 60's soul music, and that he felt really sad the connection is gone now, and that there's no one left who makes music like that anymore. A really beautiful, sincere song. A lovely tribute.

    General CommentThis song is, for me, the best song from their new trilogy. It's just so beautiful and simple. It's not like Fuck Time, Oh Love and these other songs. It just sounds so... sincere.
