08. Amy's Song

New Way to Be Human
by Switchfoot



 

Amy's gone
And time rolls on
How far? how fast? how long?

The last time we saw Amy
She was headed for the shore
Fighting off the volatile gray skies

She said now begins forever
And that no one knows their time
We bid farewell not knowing
That might be our last good-bye

CHORUS
Amy was a fighter
She cut like Casius Clay
She burned like a fire
Despite these rains

When time was a question
She only knew one song:
She's singing, "how far, how fast, how long?"

Salvation is a fire
In the midnight of the soul
It lights up like a can of gasoline

Yeah, she's a freedom fighter
She's a stand up kind of girl
She's out to start a fire
In a bar code plastic world

CHORUS

When everything stops moving
And I stop to catch my breath
And ride my train of thought
All the way round

My thoughts return to Amy
And the fire she's begun
She came when we were freezing
And left us burning up

CHORUS
