Biography

At five years old, music became my singular healer and trustworthy companion. At ten years old, I fell in love with the piano. At sixteen years old, I aquired the instrament of my dreams. I have written songs forever thereafter... I am self taught and grateful everyday for my gifts.

"Compositionally, Amara's songs are entirely distinctive- jazzy in that the piano is improvisational, bluesy in that her voice is powerful raw soul and pop in that her phrasings stay with you." - Susan Gleason -DJ- Earth on the Air- Seattle WA

Lyrics

Like no Other

Written By: Amara Grace

a warm wind sent
by a south western god
a spiral road at the crest of dawn
got the light in my eye
and best friend at the wheel
if i was lookin' for heaven
i would stop right here

'cuz you shine like father
and sing like mother
dance like sister
and play like brother
like no other

all in all we're livin' on a wing
the joy and sorrow
stellar and angelic
and love moves with us
like the present
to see itself remembered

'cuz we shine like father
and sing like mother
dance like sister
and play like brother
like no other

a warm wind sent
by a south western god
a spiral road at the crest of dawn
got the light in my eye
and best friend at the wheel
if i was lookin' for heaven
i would stop right here

Anything in the World

Written By: Amara Grace

in the inbetween
before the truth is heard
and a smile is there
to silence the word
if it's not safe
and your not ready
feels too big
and way too scary

just remember that
i would do anything
in the world for you
ah- the sweet world for you
i would do anything
in the world for you
ah- the sweet world for you

if i could give you anything
it'd be the feeling
of your supreme beauty
the answers
from your deepest wisdom
the recognition
of your infinite worthiness
and the illumination of yourself shown thru love
reflecting back your true nature

just remember that
i would do anything
in the world for you
ah- the sweet world for you
i would do anything
in the world for you
ah- the sweet world for you

if it's not safe
and your not ready
feels too big
and way too scary

just remember that
i would do anything
in the world for you
ah- the sweet world for you
i would do anything
in the world for you
ah - the sweet world for you

just remember that...
just remember that...
just remember that...

Hugs and Kisses

Written By: Amara Grace

the ocean was there
with me and him
a universal cradle
to fall into
to take my question
and leave me
on this learning ground

he said-
i think success of a lifetime is
equal to what ya leave here with
and yea- it's all of that love
i said - well then
i must be doin' pretty good
'cuz ya see that boat over there
i could have filled it up
with my hugs and kisses

he said- hold on
to the common ground
the peace within will be found
there is gold even in sorrow
can't keep a sunrise down

i said- hey- do ya feel that pain and that beauty all at once
in this one great moment passin' us
he said -yea- let's go gentle now

he said- hold on
to the underground
the joy within will be found
there is gold even in sorrow
can't keep a sunrise down

he said- ya see
sometimes it takes years
just to clear the heart
to get back workin'
what's broken within
i said- why is it so hard to find compassion for ourselves

he said- hold on
to the higher ground
the love within will be found
there is gold even in sorrow
can't keep a sunrise down

can't keep a sunrise
can't keep a sunrise down

the ocean was there
with me and him
a universal cradle to fall into
to take my question
and leave me
on this learning ground
this learning ground

my hugs and kisses
our hugs and kisses
hugs and kisses
hugs and kisses
