Green Day post new song lyrics

imgres

Last week, on August 11, Green Day played a 21+ secret show in Costa Mesa, California to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. But the show wasn’t the only “secret” Green Day had up their sleeves: their set consisted almost entirely of brand new songs. Didn’t go? It gets worse: there was a strict no cameras policy, so there are barely any videos or audio clips from the show (and the ones that are up are low quality).

However, because Green Day know how much the jealousy is killing all of their fans who were not able to catch the show, they’ve released the lyrics to one of the new songs they played, entitled “Amy.” The full message posted by the band (including the lyrics) is below.

There is also a partial set list that people who saw the show have compiled. Not all the names of the new songs were given, and some songs were played twice. You can see the list below as well.

SET LIST (SO FAR):
1) NEW SONG – “Ferris Wheel” or “Nuclear Family”
2) NEW SONG
3) NEW SONG – “Let Yourself Go”
4) NEW SONG – “Too Young to Die”
5) NEW SONG – “Old Love”
6) NEW SONG

17) NEW SONG – “Wild One”
18) “Fuck Time” (Foxboro Hot Tubs)
19) NEW SONG or Foxboro Hot Tubs??
20) NEW SONG – “Last Gang in Town”
21) Cover by Billie – Solo

24) “Burnout”
25) “Murder City”
26) “Only of You”
27) “Hitchin A Ride”

The songs “Amy” and “Ashley” belong in the list, but no one from the show can seem to agree on when they were played.

MESSAGE FROM THE NAD AND LYRICS TO “Amy”:

Thanks everyone for coming out to the show Thursday night and supporting us and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We have been in jamming and writing new songs for the last few months. It felt great to play these new Green Day songs live and share our “work in progress”.. Stay tuned for more!
Love green day

P.S. here are the lyrics for The new song Amy…

Amy
Is your heart singing out of tune
Are your eyes just singing the blues
Dirty records from another time
Some blood stains on your shoes
No one really knows about your soul
And I barely even know your name
Burning rhythms and posting lies
For a bunch of fools drown in shame
Amy don’t you go
I want you around
Singin’ woah please don’t go
Do you wanna be a friend of mine?
Did you tattoo a lucky charm
To keep you out of harms way?
Warding off all evil signs
But it never really kept you safe
You’re too young for the golden age
Cause the record bin’s been replaced
27 gone without a trace
And you walked away from your drink
Is your heart singing out of tune
Are you eyes just singing the blues?
Dirty records from another time
Some blood stains on your shoes
May I have this last dance
By chance if we should meet?
Can you write me a lullaby?
So we can sing you to sleep

The songs were reportedly very rock-and-roll, and very different from “typical” Green Day. It was more along he lines of their side project, the Foxboro Hot Tubs, which has led to some speculation that there will be a new album from FHT in the future.

Just for kicks, if you want to listen to the version of “amy” that is currently on YouTube, you can do so here.

Here’s hoping this means a new album is in the works!
