  • Amy's got the letters I wrote
    My picture in a frame
    She's had a year to let go
    She still wearing 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
    Yeah 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 okay
    Feel her heartbeat next to mine
    And 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

    Now three years have gone by
    She's finally living 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

    And kiss the tears right off her face
    Tell her everything's' okay
    Feel her heartbeat next to mine
    And 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 to save me
    But there's still hope for 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 her that ounce of faith
    That led her right back here to me
    And most of all for saving Amy
    Amy, saving Amy
    Thank you God for saving Amy
    For saving Amy
    Thank you God for saving Amy
    For saving Amy yeah
    For saving Amy
    For saving Amy
    Saving Amy
    Thank you God for saving Amy Writer/s: BONNIE J. BAKER, BRANTLEY KEITH GILBERT

  • Onyx from Maun, BotswanaUndoubtedly one of the best songs ever written, It's still on repeat....my number one!
  • Amy Foster from 98801Parts of the story are not actually true. The story is about me. I asked Brantley to not bring up certain facts about the situation in public because it was such a tragic event for both he and I. He's written several songs for me since the situation and I'm happy he's been such a successful country music artist. I hope to one day inspire more people like him and possibly share our story so I don't have to hide and deal with the bullying.
  • Tlww from The Natural StateThank you for accepting me......!!
  • Robbie from Kingston Georgia I have loved that song from the time I heard it. I love all his music
