Lyrics

Amy

Written By: Lizza Connor

Broken down woman
Broken down house
She's got a heart that's broke
From a girl she can't forget about

Through the chain-link fence
Across the dusty floor
A woman lies on the couch
And stares at the door

CHORUS:
Amy Louise
Amy
Amy just scans the papers
And looks for girls that look like her
Amy it's a bad day
Amy it's a phase
This is your life broken down

V2:
She met a young man
He said he'd take her away
He just took her way too far
And left her with a baby

Amy I'm scared
I can’t do this
Amy I'm 21 don't put me through this…Chorus…We can't afford this, we'll end up old and tired and settled just like our parents

V3:
Eighteen
Alone with a baby
Alone with a broken heart
It'll drive a young girl crazy

So she went downtown
To a place she'd heard about
A haven, a safe place, a way out…CHORUS Just sign the papers, There's a nice couple here and they'll take good care of her

V4:
Through the chain length fence
Across the dusty floor
A man walked in calling for his baby daughter

Amy, it's me
Can you forgive me?
I had to figure out where I fit in this family

Get out of my house
Get out of my life
All I ever wanted was to be a mother and a wife

BRIDE:
Now I don't sleep
I hear her cry
Wasn't I good enough, good enough, good enough to keep? Chorus…Don't feel guilty,
you made the choice, that gave me life

V5:
Broken down woman
Broken down house
She's got a heart that's broke
From a girl she can't forget about
