Amanda Gently
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
I stood there staring at the street
I loiter by for a broken light
The stop where we should meet
I use a quarter for the phone
But no-one's home
Pulled up my coat to hide the snow
Slipped on the thought that you would even show
But, still torn to pieces, fall apart
Take my heart

Chorus:
Maybe we'll laugh, and maybe we'll fight
There's no-one to blame, who's wrong or right
So push me away, God, don't say goodnight
But if you're needing someone
Then damn, then who am I?

I hit the wall and watch it break
Face down in the holes of my mistake
But to empty out this sort of pain
You gotta let it drain
Amanda, can I say
That I can paint a butterfly with empty shades of grey
You let it go and fly away
But hear me say, hear me say, say, say, say, say

Chorus:
Maybe we'll laugh, and maybe we'll fight
But there's no-one to blame, who's wrong or right
So push me away, God, don't say goodnight
Amanda, Amanda

You're the drug that I take that makes it all right
Listen to the trashcan Sinatras on a Saturday night
We're boarding the plane, hold my hand on the flight

Amanda, gently take my heart
Amanda, gently take my heart
This song has a plethora of names.  It was originally called "Amanda Gently", and the title morphed into "Gently" when Amanda's name was cut out of the song.  It's also called "Needing Someone" on the internet or on certain bootlegs.

This is the old version of the song "Gently", a 5591 and Blue October song.  The lyrics to the new version can be found
here.
