Amazing
Kanye West Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's amazing, I'm the reason
Everybody fired up this evening
I'm exhausted, barely breathing
Holding on to what I believe in

No matter what you'll never take that from me
My reign is as far as your eyes can see
It's amazing, so amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing
So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing (let's go)

I'm a monster, I'm a killer
I know I'm wrong, yeah
I'm a problem
That'll never ever be solved

And no matter what you'll never take that from me
My reign is as far as your eyes can see
It's amazing, so amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing
So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing (let's go)

I'm a monster, I'm a maven
I know this world is changing
Never gave in, never gave up
I'm the only thing I'm afraid of

No matter what you'll never take that from me
My reign is as far as your eyes can see
It's amazing, so amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing
So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing
So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing
So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing

I'm amazing (amazing)
Yeah, I'm all that (all that)
If I ain't on my grind
Then what you call that? (What you call that?)
Victorious, yeah, we warriors
We make history, strive off victory (yeah)
Standing at my podium, I'm tryna watch my sodium (sodium)
Die high blood pressure, either let the feds catch ya
I'm amazing, born on a full moon
I was bred to get in, no spoon
That's why I'm so goon, summertime, no June
Big family, small house, no rooms
They like "Oh God, why he go so hard?"
Look what he's been through
He deserves an applause

So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing
So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing (let's go)




So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing
So amazing, so amazing, so amazing, it's amazing (let's go)
