Charted: 57 24
  • 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 and tired
    Of livin' a lie
    I was wishin' that I would die

    It's amazing
    With the blink of an eye, you finally see the light
    It's amazing
    When the moment arrives that you know you'll be alright
    It's amazing
    And I'm sayin' a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight

    That one last shot's 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

    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 a tryin' to survive
    Scratchin' to stay alive

    It's amazing
    With the blink of an eye, you finally see the light
    It's amazing
    When the moment arrives that you know you'll be alright
    Oh, it's amazing
    And I'm sayin' a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight

  • Laura from El Paso, TxI was going to comment on the oddity that this is an Aerosmith song that has nothing to do with sex, but I see that Sofia from Serbia beat me to it! Still it is a rarity...........
  • Steve from Hillsboro, NhDon Henley (Eagles) sings background vocals on this song.
  • Brenda from Danville Pa, PaAreosmith is the greatest group ever Wow, I would love to meet you guys sometime your songs are awesome I really Like Dream on And Ragdoll
  • Michael from Staten Island, NyBad pun alert. This song is amazing! Too bad about Tyler geting kicked out of Aerosmith though. Anybody who thinks he is just a drunk beady eyed high pitched weirdo, I would gladly work things out with you in a dark alleyway.

    The lyric is very nice,talk about things that happened to Steven and the band.

  • Vickeybird from Pune, -Amazing is very positive song which you can lean on when caught in life's downward spirals. i think of alicia silverstone whenever i hear this song(actress in video). She also acted in two more videos, crying and crazy
    This song also features don hanley of eagles on harmony vocals. (You can't miss it once you've noticed).
  • Joe from Fort Mitchell, KyI agree, this is a great tune. I saw Steven Tyler on the Henry Rollins Show on IFC awhile back and he discussed this song and its inspiration.
  • Homer from Springfield, KyI never really liked this song. But it's one of those things that kinda grows on you. Eh?
