lyrics

Watching Amy

Young woman why have you come?
“My belly’s full and my weaving’s done.
I need a break from my man and maybe my son.”

Take this flower and wash the stem
Sew the petals up into your hem
And rest there a while like a priceless gem

And dream of all you ever wanted to be

If all I can lose is my mind
…and all is better than this
Might be better than this
If all I can change is the time
Then it’s all worth while for watching Amy

Can you feel the rain on Monday
Can it wake your heart or wash you away

Old man with your burlap sack
Containing the dreams you once had stacked
High up and hard... now they lay on your back

Well I heard you say there’s always pain
To trade your dreams for what remains
Or for a memory
Of a soft exchange

If all I can lose is my mind
Then all is better than this
Might be better than this
If all I can change is the time
Then it’s all worth while for watching Amy
