Today it’s been 23 years since Aerosmith published their 11th studio album Get a Grip. Amazing and Cryin’ are both on this album and that’s why there are two songs in today’s post. Although Aerosmith’s best know song is probably I don’t wanna miss a thing both songs are worth knowing and listening to. I got to know Amazing relatively late but loved it ever since. It’s one of the songs I wish I could write.

My favorite lines:

There was a time
When I was so broken hearted
Love wasn’t much of a friend of mine

(Aerosmith – Cryin’)

I was cryin’ when I met you
Now I’m tryin’ to forget you
Love is sweet misery
I was cryin’ just to get you
Now I’m dyin’ cause I let you
Do what you do – down on me

(Aerosmith – Cryin’)

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

(Aerosmith – Amazing)

You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk

(Aerosmith – Amazing)

What do you think about the songs? Are there any particular songs you’d like your kids to know?
