“Amy’s Song” from New Way To Be Human by Switchfoot. Released: 1999. Track 8. Genre: Christian Rock.

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
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
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?”
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
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?”
How long?
How long?
How long?
Last time we saw Amy
Last time we saw Amy
Last time we saw Amy
Last time we saw Amy
Last time we saw Amy
