Lyrics


"Amy" written by Ryan Adams

 

I don't know why I let go 

I want to be your friend 

Flowers grow through my window and I love you again 

Oh I love you oh 

When you laid me down into your beautiful garden 

Flowers in the love of my arms 

Its God shining through to me I guess 

 

Its God shining through to me I guess 

I love you Amy 

 

Do you still love me 

I go to the places where we used to 

I feel sad 

I am out here looking for you 

 

Sometimes I pretend 

Oh I miss you oh 

When you laid me down 

Into your beautiful garden 

Flowers and the love in my arms 

Is God playing evil tricks on me 

 

Is God playing evil tricks on me 

Oh I love you Amy 

 

Do you still love me
