"Amazing" as written by and Richie/tyler Supa....
I kept the right ones out
And let the wrong ones in
Had an angel of mercy
To see me through all my sins
There were times in my life
When I was goin' insane
Tryin' to walk through the pain

When I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah, I thought I could leave
But couldn't get out the door...heh ha
I was so sick n' tired
Of livin' a lie
I was wishing that I would die

It's amazing
With the blink of an eye
You finally see the light
Oh...It's amazing
When the moment arrives
That you know you'll be alright
Yeah...It's amazing
And I'm saying a prayer
For the desperate hearts tonight

That one last shot's a Permanent Vacation
And how high can you fly with broken wings
Life's a journey, not a destination
And I just can't tell just what tomorrow brings...yeah

You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk
But I just couldn't listen
To all that righteous talk...oh yeah
I was out on the street
Just tryin' to survive
Scratchin' to stay alive


So, from all of us in Aerosmith
To all of you out there
Wherever you are, remember
The light at the end of the tunnel
May be you

    General CommentMy boyfriend once told me that i was "the light at the end of the tunnel" for him, now he hates me. It was still sweet though, and I'll always love this song. I just need to wait for someone to save me.

    General CommentThis song helped me through a very tough time in my life. I was all alone, and had kept the right ones out...one night, I heard it on the radio again, but for the first time in a different light, and it changed my whole way of thinking...
    When I saw them last year, and they played it, it was, well, Amazing! lol! I know I'm a loser, don't worry!

    General CommentThis is A GREAT song, I'm pretty sure it is about the band and their past troubles and ultimatley overcoming them...JUST LOOK AT THESE LYRICS:

    That one last shot's a Permanent Vacation (they had one last shot with their album...PERMANENT VACATION, which did REALLY WELL and made them relevant again)
    And how high can you fly with broken wings (Aerosmith's logo containts wings, and during the early 80's they were broken, with Joe Perry gone and numerous band problems)
    Life's a journey, not a destination
    And I just can't tell just what tomorrow brings...yeah
    (The band as a whole can't tell what tomorrow may bring, but they are all greatful and happy that they have been around so long, had a second coming, and the fans still care)

    General CommentMy girlfriend quoted this song to me in writing, and I wanted to cry when I read it, even with her sitting right next to me. Sometimes the best way to express yourself is through someone else's words. Love, she be an enchanting mistress, no?
