Switchfoot - Amy’s Song


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 goodbye



Amy was a fighter

She cut like Casius Clay

She burned like a fire

Despite these rains



Where 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



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
