28

tonight in my disappointment and pride
i am amplified


they asked if i would be alright
weren’t i amplified


tonight the pleasure would have been all mine
weren't i amplified


the next time you come won’t pass me by
i will amplify


you never know what you miss 'til you have it
you never know what you miss 'til you've had it
burn birmingham, burn birmingham, i will wait
burn birmingham, i will wait
a girl turns 28


all the noise i heard when waking up
couldn't stay inside my head
amplified and taking over me
what i held broke instead


the next time you come won’t pass me by
i will amplify
