Amen.

Amen

Vocals: by American R&B soul singer Andra Day.
Lyrics: American songwriter Lindy Robbins; American R&B soul singer, songwriter and actress Andra Day; British songwriter and music producer Alexander Reid and American singer-songwriter Lily Meola.

The Greek Old Testament Semitic root from which Amen is derived, usually translates its meaning as “so be it”; while in the English Bible it has frequently been rendered as “verily,” or “truly.”

Amen

I can’t remember why I’m feeling this way.
I guess I should be crying but my heart just won’t obey.
It feels strange to be happy as I lie here on the rooftop in the rain,
I say

Amen.
To all the crazy things that happened that made me who I am,
I say,
Amen.
To everyone who ever hurt me,
I’m stronger ’cause of them Amen.
I’m not worrying ’bout tomorrow,
I’m forgetting yesterday.
Just savouring the moment in this unfamiliar place,
And I’m feeling like the velvet in a beat-up guitar case,
And so, I’ll say,
I say Amen.
To all the crazy things that happened that made me who I am,
I say Amen.
To everyone who ever hurt me,
I’m stronger ’cause of them, Amen.
Oh, life is so bizzare,
Why do we have to be so hard on ourselves?
I think I found a way to smile and be OK with myself,
With myself.
Amen.
To all the crazy things that happened that made me who I am,
Amen.
To everyone who ever hurt me,
I’m stronger ’cause of them,
And I might have not the answers, but the questions make more sense,
Amen.
