Subject: Complete Lyrics for Aerosmith's "Amazing"?

Written By: Red Ant on 08/26/05 at 10:17 pm

I call once again on everyone to help me find the complete, or at least mostly complete lyrics for Aerosmith's "Amazing". The best I can find is this (which was spliced together from 3 different sites):

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
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
To 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


Desperate hearts, desperate hearts...*

So, from all 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"

the * section is at the 3:30 minute mark and there is close to a minute of vocals that are not on any set of lyrics I can find.

Does anyone know a site that lists this minute of vocals or can provide a rough translation?

Go to:]
If this doesn't work for some reason, just go to, type in either Aerosmith under the artist search, or "Amazing" under the second box Title:, and you'll find it.

Try this site:

Bingo! Thanks so much, this was the part I was missing:

Did he wanna see without and give what I get
Oh, oh woh no, oh woh no
Ya ka kow, ya ka ka ka kow
Hooooo woh oooh
Tell you where we'll go
Love is all naughty, na no
Yaba da dun do, na no
A-t-yeah two two two
Ya no no no no no no, no no
It's amazing
It's so exciting
That's right
It's amazing, ya yow
It's a net go tip top tatayeah
Ohhhhhh, woh no no no no no
Whoo whoo oh oh

Of course, since my parody idea is 'cause I'm lazy", I probably won't include all that ad-libbing (too much work  ;)), but it is nice to know what the heck that part is. Someone obviously translated that section by ear, and wrote a very complete set of lyrics, something that as a parodist I usually have to do myself.
