Jack Ingram - Song for Amy Lyrics

Well my words they may sound familiar
Like ones you may have heard before
But when I tried to write you a love song
I simply could think of nothing more

I love you, I want you and I need you
I'd love to have you by my side
I love you, I want you and I need you
Your love gives my soul a place to hide

I've thought of different ways to tell you
Words however come up short
Of the way I really feel about you
Of the way you're always on my mind

How can I say it any different
The words they all mean the same

I love you, I want you and I need you
A rose is still a rose by another name

The words of those who've come before me
May have sparkled on the page and made you high
All I know is the thought of life without you
Is enough to make the strongest man cry

Amy when I speak to you please listen
Smile, laugh or cry but don't walk away

I love you, I want you and I need you
Please tell me that you feel the same

My words they may sound familiar
Like ones you may have heard before
But never were they said with such conviction
I know they will ring true forever more

I love you, I want you and I need you
I'd love to have you by my side
I love you, I want you and I need you
Your love gives my soul a place to hide
