Song Description

"Amen" floats through its' verses with a comfortable, signable melody and wishful lyrics. The chorus is instantly memorable and offers even the most pitch challenged a place to fit in.

Everybody needs something..."Amen" points out in a gentle way those things which we so often take for granted, yet so many still lack. The song captured a moment of optimism and hope, while always recognizing the challenges of creating a heaven on earth.

Lyrics

Everybody needs a Superstar
Someone who will here them pray
Everybody needs a hero, some way
Everybody needs a cigarette
Everybody needs a home
Even those with no one to call their own

Even I can see the day
Amen, Amen
Even I can see the way
This will end, I?m sayin?
Don?t hold me back

Everybody needs a pillar
To lift them high above it all
Everybody needs a miracle, when they fall
Everybody needs a hand to hold on to
Someone they won?t ever let go of
Everybody needs to feel just a little love

Even I can see the day
Amen, Amen
Even I can see the way
This will end, I?m sayin?
Don?t hold me back

Everybody needs a nemesis
Something that they fear
Stand and face it your nightmares disappear
Everybody needs a government
That they can count upon, to leave them alone
Everybody needs to sing to their own song

Even I can see the day
Amen, Amen
Even I can see the way
This will end, I?m sayin?
Don?t hold me back
