New Green Day songs leaked on YouTube, plus lyrics/live audio to new song, 'Amy'

So Green Day played a secret show Thursday, August 11 at the Tiki Bar in Oakland, CA. From what I hear, there was a no camera, no phone policy, but someone broke that rule and recorded a few brand new Green Day tunes. The quality is kind of shitty, but I'm assuming that's because whoever was recording was trying to be sneaky.

This first one is called "Amy," and while the band never said it was about Amy Winehouse, I could see how the lyrics and title could imply it being about the late musician.


"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"
