Amazing – #47

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
It’s amazing
That when the moment arrives
You know you’ll be alright
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
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
It’s amazing
That when the moment arrives
You know you’ll be alright
It’s amazing
And I’m saying a prayer
For the desperate hearts tonight

“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!”

This piece is based on Amazing, by Aerosmith. Kind of a cheesy video, but a great song. This song came out at a bit of a rough time in my life, so it always kind of reminds me of that. Watching the video I realized that the actor in the video is Jason London, who was in the movie Dazed and Confused. His character, Randall “Pink” Floyd, is one of the characters I named my cat Floyd after. (the other is Brad Pitt’s character in True Romance – also Floyd) Amazing. :)

It’s interesting to me the different songs that are ending up as pieces. I never would have thought that an Aerosmith song would end up here, but I like how this came out. This one actually might be my favorite so far.
