Amazing Lyrics - Aerosmith

Review The Song (14)

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

And when I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah, I thought I could leave
But couldn't get out the door
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
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 a 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

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

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
Oh it's amazing
And I'm saying a prayer
For the desperate hearts tonight

(Vocal Solo)

(Guitar Solo with Steven Tyler yelling lyrics in background)

(Guitar Solo)

"So, from all of us at Aerosmith
To all of you out there, wherever you are.
Remember- the light at the end of the tunnel
May be you. Goodnight!"

(Classical jazz music outro)

Terry's death! | Reviewer: | 8/5/11

My twin sisters's son was stabed in the neck terry was 31 years old. Terry's brother was in the next room.Michael was that light at the end of the tunnel for terry. As he held his brother's head with one hand and place the other hand on his head and began to pray for terry as he passed away! What a horrible death! Thank you Steven Tyler this brings me peace! It's Amazing! How this song fits Terry! And his family!

Amazing | Reviewer: Angelina | 4/11/11

I didn't know of aerosmith struggles because I was going through my own personal problems not with drugs. My spouse was an alcoholic and I believed used at some point in our marriage. I was raising four children on my own counting my husband makes 5.So there was no time for listening to music. I had my own music in this murky marriage to deal with.
I just discovered aerosmith, I am ashamed to say at my age 57. I throughly enjoy their music. Amazing is something I wished my spouse had experienced. Now it's too late, he's no longer of this world. I hope this song reaches all those struggling out there wherever they are for it is an eye opener. God Bless Aerosmith for your courage to change your destructive ways and emerge as the phoenix.

leaving an abusive relationship | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/21/11

in this song, the interpretation i came up with was that a person is in a relationship that is abusive and couldnt see a way out. this song helped me to see the light and gave me the inner strength to leave the jerk and fly on my own. i can do bad all by myself. i got myself out of it, rebuilt my self esteem and learned from the experience. i just couldnt listen to the righteous talk because it was all just talk. its easier to say "leave the guy" when hes got the door blocked, then it is to push him aside to open the door. although this is a different interpretation of what the song intended, this is what i heard upon first hearing the song. thank guys for helping me see the light at the end of my tunnel. i felt so low, n i didnt have the support of family and friends, just my faith that it will all get better. you cant fly high with broken wings and i had to scrape just to keep my sanity. thanks again.

its amazinnn ... | Reviewer: Kapish | 7/14/09

:) ... yeah it is ... so many of the aerosmith's songs are ... the lines have a deep meaning ... its gives hope to all of those looking for a silver lining ... strugglin ... well i wont say just with drugs ... alcohol ... and the sort ... but in other ways too ... it just tells that the good times will come after all the troubles ... we just have to keep the faith ... another thing is ... yes sometimes we do let the wrong ones in ... and that is the reason for most of the troubles of out live ...

the best thing about them is that ... with all the sh*t goin around ... they have survived ... they are alive and kicking ... thats the greatest thing a hero should be made of ... so everyone having trouble this day ... remember what Floyd baba says ... THE LONG YOU LIVE THE HIGH YOU FLY ... : ) ... SO keep livin ... life is beautiful ... : )

god bless ... namaste ... : )

Amazingly true | Reviewer: AzCullen | 6/17/09

After listening to this song I decided to do some research on Aerosmith because there is to much intensity and passion for them just to write this song on the spot. I found out that Aerosmith used to be major druggies and alcoholics, they would do cocaine, heroine, you name it. It got so bad that Steven Tyler the lead singer even had concussions on stage and he would forget his lyrics and it was just really bad. The nonstop touring wasn't helping either, Aerosmith was officialy burnt out. With tensions getting high sexy Joe Perry the lead guitarist and backround vocals quit and had a 5 year break. After everyone cooled down and was sober Aerosmith got back togethor (thank god I don't know what I would do if Aerosmith didn't exist) they bounced back singing walk this way featuring Run DMC hitting the billboard charts at #5 (I think). To me Aerosmith are heroes becasue they went from just living in a small apartment with 5 guys and being addicts to living the big life! Love you Aerosmith you'll always be my rock gods!!!!

Amazing song | Reviewer: Ronald | 2/5/09

First of all i think this song has the most serious theme among aerosmith's songs. Personally i think the song kinda reminder to us all mortal human that we're all going to die eventually. So for us who aren't aware of how short life is and how easy it can be snapped away, please do this world a favor and lower your pride and ego a little and start asking yourself what can i contribute in this life beside garbage, CO2 gas and irrational hatred toward others.

one day at a time | Reviewer: amber from tulsa | 2/7/08

Steve Tyler apparently wrote this song while in the rooms of a beautiful, life changing 12 step program. (Or so he told my friend) Thank you Steve. I love listening to music that I can relate too. Some die so that others may live. I'm so glad I lived through the prison called my life and came out with a god given purpose!

God┬┤s grace | Reviewer: Al | 1/28/08

Ya`know pals? I used to be a druggadict, and being tired of life, I only gave shit to the people I said to love, and I was only wishin` to die. But god had mercy, and took me out of that, and nowadays, I can aprecciate this song as a whole (before I came out to light I thought it to be too light and cheap, no like the old aerosmith) Now I think, this is the most beautiful song from Aerosmith and I also now am saying for the desperate hearts

God`s grace | Reviewer: Al | 1/28/08

you know? I used to be a druggadict, I was lost, and everyday livin was sickenin to me.
I spent my time gettin high everywhere, listenin to acid rock, but this song was boring to me, it was til God changed my life, took me out of drugs and I could finally see the light.
I now enjoy life and thank God for it, I love my family and curiously, I now love this song. Many won`t understand the meaning of it, but I hope they do soon. Meanwhile, I`m also keep sayin` a prayer for thos hearts
