Amber Run - Amen Lyrics

And are those real angels in the magazines?
Oh, is there a heaven? You'd know now you've been
Are those real stars that hang in the sky?
Or are they man made? A trick of the light?

Amen, Amen, Amen

And is there a God up there? 'So, where does he hide?
'Cause the devil is raging inside my mind
And is there a moment where it all makes sense?
When saying goodbye, doesn't feel like the end?

Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen

Sometimes I can't help blaming you
For leaving me here, what am I supposed to do?
There's plenty of women, there's drink and there's drugs
But we both know that won't be enough
'Cause I see you in the daytime, and I hear you at night
There's a pale imitation burnt in my eyes
I don't want to be here, I don't know what to do
Sometimes I'd rather be dead, at least then I'm with you

Amen, Amen
Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen

    I have tried to tell people I need help. No one seems to care or understand. My life is falling about, and it has been for some time now. I feel like I'm having a nervous breakdown. I put on a front for my family and friends they feel like I'm so strong. I'm falling apart. My mom tells me black people don't see psychiatrist we just deal with it and pray, but I have been praying, screaming, and crying no one seems to hear my cries. So I found this song, and I repeat it over and over. God please help me!!

    My father passed away December 3rd 2019 and words can't describe how painful it is to lose a parent we know we have to do it sooner later but no matter what you are never truly ready when it happens. I'm so grateful for the time I had with him and I will miss him so much.

  4. Elif Su

    Şarkı çok güzel falan da ,ne vardı şu ezgiyi imansız sözlerle birleştirmeseydiniz

  5. Lanatavina :p

    Chills bro, literary chills.

  6. Kevin Nguyen

    Listened to him live and he shared his story of writing this. Very genuine and amazingly well written and sung song!

  7. Cecilia Eberle

    Found this a little bit ago. It's been a tough year, not going to lie. I lost my lifelong pet, multiple family members, and my Grandpa who means the WORLD to me is on the verge of death at the moment. I found this song and it is truly beautiful. But all I can think about whilst listening to this song is the things I have lost, but believe it or not, that's a good thing. I am a person who bottles up their sadness and shoves it deep down inside them. Simply because I am supposed to be the "happy" person. This song brings out this emotion, and it's relieving. I listen to this every night and just let it all out. It's one of the best feelings to let out all that emotion that has been shoved inside of me for a while. I know it's been a year, but I want to thank the artist for this truly magnificent piece of art that my ears have been blessed to come across. <3

  8. Med Chafi

    That' so underrated

  9. Barbara Whiteley

    Wow, love this soulful song. Sad lyrics.

  10. Contradiction

  12. Rachael

  13. Saskia Den Boer

    Been years now still waiting for a channel to make a karaoke version 😭

  14. Renee Red

    I'm at the end of my rope, and there is no one to catch me when I fall. I lost my dad when I was 10. I still hold on to him to this day. My heart has been broken so many times I have lost count. I'm searching for him in relationships, and I always end up with someone like him, and that leaves me heartbroken. My dad was a alcoholic, and most if not all the relationships I been in the person had some kind of addiction, and I want to fix them, but I can't. This song makes me cry. Makes me think. If you have true love hold on to it bc some of us are still searching for it 💋

  15. Olivia Kristine

    could you IMAGINE how powerful this would be in concert

  16. Nop Lmn

    I kind of want to listen to this while reading The Final Problem. Why, brain.

  17. minecore logan sears

  18. Blank Blank

  23. kitty meow meow

    So like yeet yeet

  24. Mary

    Came here because of the show So You Think You Can Dance!

  25. AtypicalWeirdo

    The lyrics at the end:

    I don’t wanna be here
    I don’t know what to do
    Sometimes I’d rather be dead
    At least then I could be with you

    This is what I’ve felt. It’s what I’ve repeated to God in my head when I had depression or if I was struggling with something. The only reason I am sane is the fact that I have Jesus on my side.

  26. Petar Svilan

    fuck, the emotion in this, made me sob wow

  27. Renee George

    SYTYCD definitely brought me here

  28. Sahana Deva

  32. Ms. Suki Washington


  33. yoga fernando

    you guys need more exposure your song are one of the best i think but people don't know wants good and hear mumble song nowadays

  34. RosieBrie

    I learned of this song from a girl I really like. She's got good taste. Love it!


    bro this actually sounds like residential school

    'Sometimes I can't help blaming you for leaving me here'
    'Theres a pale imitation burnt in my eyes.'
    'I don't want to be here I don't know what to do.'
    'Sometimes I'd rather be dead at least then I'm with you'
    'Amen amen amen amen amen amen amen.'

    Like, is it just me or?

  36. Pawi 01

    what kind of Hallelujah cover is this?

  37. Blank Blank


  38. Lex

    God when you wish you were dead too

  39. Sophie Filo

    "Sometimes, I'd rather be dead. At least then, I'm with you."
    That line hits hard...

  40. nomi

    Dawid Podsiadło brought me here

  41. Jordan Cox

    Stumbled on this group by accident and never have I been more the beneficiary for doing so. Their writing has a visceral quality that is missing in most modern music. It's going to be hard not to drive the 7 hours to see them on Nov. 1 in Philly.

  42. Hailey Kauweloa

    lowkey sounds like the lead singer from the script

  43. Oni Del Angel

    Oh god... my heart 💔. Truly beautiful, a masterpiece.

    Oni Del Angel

    I wish u all the best of luck with everything u do. I hope it all works out for u❤

  44. Lavínia Maia

    A perfeição existe e está contida nessa música

  45. Connor Smith-ShortCake

    I'm gonna do a solo at dance to this for my aunt suzie


    The second this song starts playing my heart starts to hurt , my chest gets heavier and heavier , the pressure in my head makes it even worse

  47. beautyofkeilani 13

    dude, where’s his concert tickets he needs a hug and so do I🥺

  48. Lyle S

    Amber run.. you are painful, man

  49. Izabella De Los Monteros

    This makes me think of my mother and my grandmother. I know how much my mom misses her😥

  50. Dumb Head

    I'm obsessed with this song! So passionate.

    I was wondering if someone can help me out?
    The piano part at 1:37-1:49 reminds me of another song, long ago etched in a memory somewhere and it's driving me crazy!

  51. Vincent Khuu

    Anyone know the background to this song? Who is it about?

  52. annalise wren

    can’t wait to see you bud. i miss you. hopefully 11 treats you well up in heaven. you didn’t deserve to go so young

  53. Iara Ferreira

    This song hurts so bad

  54. Nol One


  55. Bread god

    damn the way the emotion builds and changes

  56. Chronorust

    This song speaks from the deepest depths of the soul, and it shows.

  57. Hays~

    I have yet to find a more perfect imitation of what I feel when going through grief over my dad. I cry to this song on repeat and I feel every line, every amen.

  58. Lolo Wells

    I miss you saman. Your face is still burning my eyes when I wake up; you’re the sun. Some days I forget about you completely. Other days, you are the iron blood in my mouth, you’re my sore throat from screaming and my burning lips from smoking, my shaking hands from holding my pillow that should’ve been you. Maybe you were the right person, but I wasn’t the one for you. I miss you and it’s wrong and it kills me. You’re so damn religious and I hope your gods carry you safely in your drunken sleep, to our tomb of forever where it lies in some other life.

  59. Katie Coad

    Holy fuck wasn't expecting this..😭

  60. Hana Abe

    There’s something so nostalgic and calming about this song. The words are so powerful it transforms you in a way that I can’t explain.

  61. Alicia Rogers

    My mother died in March and that is exactly how I feel I want to be with her..

  62. willow


  63. Εύα Νικολάου

    Oh my thats.. its getting deeper and deeper since i couldnt know what to do ..we are so lost and never trully loved ~

  64. Sean Moran

    I'm pretty sure you guys dont read the comments but regardless...thank you. A year and 2 weeks ago I lost my grandmother to a 5 year spanning battle with dementia. At first she would forget small things like where she put her glasses or what she came in the room to do, and as a 9 year old I figured it was normal as she was in her mid 70's. 5 years later, last January to be exact, my grandmother was brought to a nursing home, as her condition had worsened immensely and she often spoke very softly and questioningly. She could not respond to most questions correctly, and spent hours a day sitting in the kitchen staring blankly, as if she was not really there anymore. After about 3 weeks my grandfather decided to take her back home, and although I wanted her to be with her family, I feel like the conditions were better in the nursing home for her, as my grandpa was 88 and couldnt really hear well if she had fallen or anything. But luckily she never had any bad injuries. However by March, she had a nurse visiting every other day, she was bedridden, and had lost all motor functions. Her speech was almost inaudible, but she always seemed to be trying to say something. March 10th is a day I will never forget. Not because she has passed on that day, but because it was the last day I had seen her. We knew she only had 2 weeks at most, and that my visit very well could've been my last goodbye to her, but i wish i had stayed over for the night and been there with her when it happened. She went peacefully and in her sleep the next morning. I wasnt told until late afternoon, and although i had known it would happen for years, the wave of emotion and loss that hit me broke me down more than i could have prepared for. And I had friends with me that night who comforted me and told me it would be alright, that we all lose people close sometimes, but I still wish that I couldve said goodbye when it counted. When she could understand me, remember who I am and how much I loved her. I've tried visiting her grave; I couldn't make it to the funeral because of school, but I dont know where exactly it is. I'm sorry I havent visited you nana. If you're up there, if you can somehow see this message or hear what I've said, I love you, and Ihope I see you again. And to every member of this band, thank you for creating such a sad yet beautiful song. I've never really found music as a good way to heal sadness, but the empathy and pure emotion in this song is so real and similar to how we have all felt in the face of an early or close death. What you do and make is remarkable Amber Run, and as your fans, we want you to know that we appreciate everything you do for us. Everything. I'm just one of millions of people who listen to your music daily, but I am not the only one who has been moved by your music in so many different ways. I promised myself that if I get married, I'd spend my life savings just to have you guys play "the weight" at the wedding. It's another beautiful song that holds pure emotion of love and another that has been there for the moments in life that music usually cant describe. But yours does. Thank you Amber Run...

  65. Marques De Vaughn

    This describes my every emotion

  66. Maddie

    A week ago today you were healthy, strong. You were doing just fine. Now, so suddenly, just like that, you're gone. Three days later, it still doesn't feel real to me. I miss you and I will never forget you.

  67. bambis46

    I believe this is about his mum! Which is DEVASTATING if that's true!

  68. Mint

    It’s more like we hide from God.

    fiquei com pena de quem fez a música , que deus de um abraço nele

  71. Jocelyn

    “I don’t wanna be here, I don’t know what to do” hits me extremely hard, it’s like someone else is speaking for me😔

  72. ski 345

    This song hits so deep and the words make me want to cry. “Sometimes I’d rather be dead, at-least I’ll be with you.” The sense of loss and emptiness in this song makes me think of the people that everyone has lost. Someone’s lost there mother. Someone’s lost their father or daughter or lover or son. And the fact that everyone has gone through such pain is so saddening and yet it is what makes us human. I love the fact that somehow, everyone can relate with this song.

  73. Aldrin Lalnunkima

    Goosebump 🙊🙊🙊

  74. Solaris Rising

    I have never heard this song until today and man, I'm in a puddle of my own tears as I'm writing this. I don't normally comment on videos, but September of 2018, I lost my sister to cancer. It completely crushed me, I was 18 at the time and I had just started college and everything. But since she left the world, I fell off the map and I haven't been able to recover. I miss her every single day, and I never really truly got to say good bye but I can still feel her with me sometimes, yet I still feel the pain as if I'm missing her terribly.
    "I'd rather be dead, at least then I'm with you."

    I couldn't relate more..


    I'm sorry about your loss. I lost my grandmother a few years ago and I still miss her terribly but i believe that she would not want me to give up on everything because of grief. It's hard but we will hang on :)
