Amy's got the letters I wrote
My picture in a frame
She's had a year to let go
She still wears my ring
It hasn't left her finger since the night that I proposed
When I promised her forever before I took her home
But I never made it home that night
A part of her died too
I watched her losing her mind
And there's nothing I can do
Yea sometimes she goes crazy screaming out my name
Saying baby please come and save me
I wish she knew I'd do anything

To kiss the tears right off her face
Tell her everything's ok
Feel her heart beat next to mine
And make up for lost time
Oh but God I know I can't
You can't let her live this way
It's too late for saving me
But there's still hope for saving Amy

Now 3 years have gone by
She's trying to live her life
And I still watch her sometimes
Just to make sure she's alright
She knows I'll always be there
In her heart and in her dreams
Cause God, I promised her forever and that's one promise I intend to keep

To kiss the tears right off her face
Tell her everything's' ok
Feel her heartbeat next to mine
Make up for lost time
Oh but god I know I can't
But you can't let her live this way
It's too late for saving me
But there's still hope for saving Amy
Saving Amy

I'll kiss the tears right off her face
When I walk her through these gates
Feel her heartbeat next to mine
Make up for lost time
God I thank you everyday
For giving a her that ounce of faith
That led her right back here to me
And most of all for saving Amy
Saving Amy
Thank you god for saving Amy

    27 years ago I lost the love of my life, he was shot & killed in our home right before my son (he was 2 at the time)and I. It was a tragic gun accident. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him and wonder how different our lives would have been if he was still alive. . When I first heard this song it stopped me in my tracks. I sat and cried. I love this song. It describes exactly how I felt. How I still feel. 27 years later it still feels like yesterday.
    I'm looking forward to hearing him play it this weekend at Pozo. I'll be the one in the front row signing every word with tears running down my face. Thank you Brantley for such a beautiful song. Rip mf.

    When ever I hear this song I think about my boy friend Chris he died the same day he proposed to me. He was on his way to his house to talk to his mom and I was really dark out and he was driving down the road in his brand new chevy silverado when a big semi truck missed the stop sign and hit him. This also reminds me of my cousin Damon Janes how he died and our love will always be there.
    I wake up ever morning thinking god fr the next moment I have with my sister and 2 brothers and family because you are garented the next moment or day so don't take it for granted in joy it because when god wants you he takes you.

    This song isnt about brantley. When he was in highschool an friend of his proposed to a girl, an got killed in a car accident on the way home. Brantley struggled over 6 months to finish this song, then his cousin came home from iraq an brantley played it to his cousin. His cousin replied "number one you got me tearing up an number 2 i been waiting a long time for someone to write a song about joeseph. Also a friend of brantleys, joeseph henley had proposed to his girlfriend amy an on his way home that night he was hit an killed by a train. The only thing that survived this tradgic accident was joesephs bible, completely untouched. So brantley new this was a sign for finishing his song. So yes 2 guys lost their lives on their way home the same nights they propsed to their girlfriends

    My boyfriend died on his way to my house as well. He had a blowout around a curve. I miss him terribly and songs like this makes me really miss him, but I know he watches over me and is happy at how my life has turned out. I love you tj. Always and forever!
