About Amanda

"Amanda" is a power ballad by rock band Boston written by Tom Scholz. The song was released as the first single from the band's third album, Third Stage, in 1986, six years after it was recorded. Although the song did not have a promotional music video, "Amanda" became the band's highest charting single in the United States and Canada. In the United States, the single topped the Billboard Hot 100 in November, 1986, for two consecutive weeks (the band's only number 1 on the Hot 100), and topped for three consecutive weeks on the Mainstream Rock chart, in October of the same year, while in the latter the single topped RPM magazine's Top Singles and Adult Contemporary charts. It was the band's first officially released single since 1978 and their first released by MCA Records. The 12-string guitar parts are played by Scholz.

Babe, tomorrow's so far away
There's something I just have to say
I don't think I can hide what I'm feelin' inside
Another day
Knowin' I love you
And I, I'm getting too close again
I don't want to see it end
If I tell you tonight 
Would you turn out the lights
And walk away knowin' I love you?

I'm gonna take you by surprise
And make you realize
Amanda
I'm gonna tell you right away
I can't wait another day
Amanda
I'm gonna say it like a man
And make you understand
Amanda
I love you

And I feel like today's the day
I'm lookin' for the words to say
Do you want to be free, are you ready for me
To feel this way?
I don't want to lose you
So, it may be too soon, I know
The feeling takes so long to grow
If I tell you today 
Will you turn me away
And let me go?
I don't want to lose you

I'm gonna take you by surprise
And make you realize
Amanda
I'm gonna tell you right away
I can't wait another day
Amanda
I'm gonna say it like a man
And make you understand
Amanda (oh girl)

You and I
I know that we can't wait
And I swear, I swear it's not a lie girl
Tomorrow may be too late
You, you and I girl
We can share a life together
It's now or never
And tomorrow may be too late (oh-oh)

And, feelin' the way I do
I don't want to wait my whole life through
To say I'm in love with you
