Cds of Amy's Career
Be Still & Know by Amy Grant 2008 written for her youth group

You made me, You know me
You're able to show me who I am & what you knew before
So I turned off the TV, my cell phone & all screens,
The little things that fill my world at home
I know there is more to living life that what I see
You know in the quiet I might find you and believe

You say be still and know
that I am God
Be still, be still and know
Be still and know that I am God
Be still, be still, be still

You made me, you know me
You're able to show me who I am & what you knew before
And I'm not used to listening and I'm curious, wondering
Can i really hear you voice
I know there is more to living life that what I see on tv
You know in the quiet I will find you and believe

You say be still & know
that I am God
Be still, be still and know
Be still and know that I am God
Be still, be still, be still
Be still, be still, be still

I Wanna Love You by Amy Grant
Pre BTE

Sometimes I act like an enemy
Sometimes I act like a friend
and sometimes I give everything in me
and sometimes I won't let you in

But I wanna love you
I will be true
I wanna love you
I really do

Sometimes I act like a lover
Sometimes I act like a child
Sometimes I comfort like an angel
Sometimes I'm hurtful and wild

But I wanna love you
I will be true
I wanna love you
I really do
I really do

Sometimes I laugh til I'm cryin'
Sometimes I cry cause I'm blue
Sometimes my faith moves mountains
Sometimes I question me & you

But I wanna love you
I will be true
I wanna love you
I really do

I wanna love you
I will be true
I wanna love you
I really do
I really do

True Love by Amy Grant

No one ever told me
During all those lonely tears I cried
That someday you would hold me
I just kept hoping inside
That true love was waiting
That true love would find me in time
That true love was waiting
That your love would finally be mine

No one ever showed me
Such care and tenderness
Darlin' you know me
And what moves me best
It's true love--waiting
True love, making up for lost time
True love waiting
Your love, that's finally mine

I can't erase these lines on my face
I'd turn back time if I could
But all the years wanting, the desperate longing
Is maybe what makes it so good
True love waiting
True love that found us in time
True love waiting
Your love that's finally mine

What is the Chance of That? by Amy Grant and Wayne Kirkpatrick

Tonight I've been counting railroad cars
Clinking and grinding into the dark
one of them passed with an open door
And I pictured myself jumping on board
What is the Chance of that
What is the chance of that

I have believed since I was little bitty girl
That there were rules of cause and effect
And they slowly shaped my world
but pain and hard times
they come and they go
Like some blinfolded angel somewhere
Is saying, "Eenie meenie, minie, moe"
What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

Why do I feel restless inside
Maybe I'm part of a wandering tribe
I'm gonna check my family tree
I bet there's a little nomad in me
what is the chance of that?
what is the chance of that?

Life is a think you drink in deep
The journey's hard and the journey's sweet
Maybe I'll search and Maybe I'll find
the things that I wanted were already mine
What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

I have believed since I was a little bitty girl
that there were rules of cause and effect
and they slowly shaped my world
but pain and hard times, they come and they go
Like some test of faith that purifies
my weak belief into something gold
What is the chance of that?

Lies

Lyrics from Friends Of Amy Spring 2002 issue...
new song that was supposed to be on Simple Things 2003 release
but was pulled
Lyrics by:Amy Grant, Beverly Darnell
Music By:Tom Hemby

Just the Other day, I was thinkin
Bout way back in the garden
The Devil had some lies to tell
and he told them all to Eve
He said, "If you where something special
loved by your Creator
He would let you taste the fruit
that's Hangin on the tree
You don't get the picture
let me make it crystal clear
Come a little closer now"
he whispered in her ear. "You're Not

Good Enough
Strong Emough
Pure enough"
He's tellin her lies, Lies You're not
Smart enough
Fool enough
Hot enough
Cool enough
all Lies

That was all so long ago
not talked about much now.
But sometimes when I'm all alone
that serpant comes around
He whispers til I'm listening
To his tired old refrain,
That everything is going wrong,
and I'm the one to blame.
The story never changes,
thats the way its always been.
A woman should know better
than to take that poison in. She's not

Good enough
Strong enough
Pure enough
Wise enough
Lies, Lies. Not
Smart enough, Fool enough
Hot enough, Cool enough
Fine enough, Plain enough
What you are, it Aint Enough
All Lies.

Always sung by Amy Grant and Gary Chapman

There's a feeling in my heart
And I've just gotta let you see
It's a door I've got to open
A ship that's got to sail
To the sea of me...

Seems you've always been my love
And I guessed you always would
But the way that things are going
All the guessing's turned to knowing
And all the maybes finally disappeared

[Chorus]

And no matter where time takes us
Both together and apart
I will always be a part of you
It's a love that will not leave you
If you take or leave my love
I will always be with you

Other loves have made me think
But they've never let me know
But like a song that lasts forever
With a chorus from now on
You have made me sing

I just had to let you see
Be as honest as I could
Like a stage without a curtain
See my heart and know for certain
That some things last for good

[Chorus]

Threaten Me With Heaven by Amy Grant 2008

I can see the tears upon your face
No hiding place
You're afraid that soon I will be gone
Time will still go on
Your searching for the answers you can't find
All in good time

What's the worst thing that can happen
If they say my time is through
Can they take away the love or the years i've shared with you

What's the worst thing that can happen
What's the worst that they can do
They can threaten me with heaven if they want to
Threaten me with heaven is all they can do
Threaten me with heaven
I'll be waiting on you

I hear angels through the window pane
Calling my name
And someday when they carve that name in stone
I won't be alone
If by chance a miracle appears
I'll dry your tears

What's the worst thing that can happen
If they say our time is through
Can they take away the love or the years I've shared with you

What's the worst thing that can happen
What's the worst that they can do
They can threaten me with heaven if they want to
Threaten me with heaven is all they can do

Threaten me with heaven
Threaten me with heaven I'll be waiting on you

Shovel In Hand by Amy Grant 2007

Life can change in the blink of an eye
You don't know when and you don't know why
"Forever Young" is a big fat lie
For the one who lives and the one who dies

I watched my son - shovel in hand
Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
Goodbye two boys, hello one man

This son of mine will leave in the fall
New friends might ask why he stand so tall
His life was changed with a telephone call
Not even he understands it all

I watched my son - shovel in hand
Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
Goodbye two boys, hello one man

I watched my son - shovel in hand
Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man

What The Angels See by Amy Grant 2007

If I could see what the angels see
Behind the walls, beneath the sea
Under the avalanche, through the trees
Gone would be the mystery
If I could see what the angels see

If I could hear what the angels hear
Thunder sound, the crashing tear
Holy Holy in my ear
I'd never that doubt God is near
If I could hear what the angels hear
If I could hear what the angels hear

If I could know what the angels know
That death is just a swinging door
And Spirits go where spirits go
I feel them but they never show
If I could know what the angels know.
If I could stand where the angels stand
And watch the world come ‘round again
And see how love designed this plan
With markings on his feet and hands
If I could stand where the angels stand
If I could stand where the angels stand

If I could see what the angels see
Behind these walls to you and me
And let the truth set me free
I would live life differently
If I could see what the angels see
If I could see what the angels see

The Wallet Song written by Amy Grant

This is one of my favorite songs...
Amy sang it at a FOA reception in the 1990's
& during the BTE tour. I asked Amy if she
would think of recording this song when I saw
her at the Charleston, WV 3/7/2004 Imagine
Tour stop & she forgot the lyrics & the song
so I am sending her a copy to have &
hopefully she will record this song soon.

I found somebody's wallet
Lying on the street
It had just a little cash
And I was just a little weak

It’s too long I've been hungry
Guess it's just my lucky day
But the name and the phone number won't fade away

I know the rub of knowing what is right
And I know the pain of swallowing a lie
And I have to face this mirror every day
Naked I came into this world and naked I'll leave someday
Faultless I came into this world, How will I leave this day

There’s people want to own you
Pretty words and pretty smiles
and no one's really trusted
Take an inch, take a mile
Dignity in living
Is written on the heart
You can't negotiate it
And that's the crazy part

I know the rub of knowing what is right
I know the pain of swallowing a lie
I have to face the mirror every day
Naked I came into this world, naked I'll leave someday
Faultless I came into this world, how will I leave this day

Given these choices
Given my needs
Given these voices
And given my greed

I know the rub of knowing what is right
I know the pain of swallowing this lie
I have to face the mirror every day
Naked I came into this world, naked I'll leave someday
Faultless I came into this world, how will I leave this day

I've Got You written by Amy Grant

This song was inspired by Amy's friend Beverly.
She calls it her "Thelma and Louise" number.

Why don't we blow this town
Gas up that car of yours and put the pedal down
I want to own the open road
And have the kind of plans
You make up as you go
Cause you and me are one of a kind
You need your space and I need mine
And I am rich as any queen
And I'm not talking 'bout the money kind of thing

Chorus:
I've got you
And you got me
Some lucky fool's big ship came in
Yours got lost at sea
Me - I've got this funky little boat
And Baby you got me

Let's burn on through the night
Turn up the tunes until it feels just right
I need the cover of the dark
To loosen up my tongue to talk about my heart
To talk about this life
How fast we live, how soon we die
And I don't believe it's a contest
Still, I think we made out better than the rest

Cause I've got you
And you got me
You may not have the ace of spades
You may not hold the king
But somewhere in those cards you're dealt
Baby you got me

I've got you
And you got me
Some lucky fools big ship came in
Yours got lost at sea
And me I've got this funky little boat
And baby you got me
Baby you got me
Baby you got me
