Amy's Song

Miss Lynn
Lynn Hickernell


I don't understand
That "Grandma" made this place by hand
A spectacular display
Of empty things, thrown away
Worthless as a grain of sand

Is she foolish, or wise?
Perhaps she sees with different eyes
Maybe others look too fast
But the things they just look past
She sees treasure in disguise

Their eyes just look through
As though there's nothing I can do
But as I wheel around this place
Can't hide the smile across my face
'Cause I know that isn't true
I'll make something splendid, too

Fill me up (Fill me up)
Fill me up with something new
Show me things that never crossed my mind before
And fill me up (Fill me up)
With wonder and surprise
Make me laugh, and cry, and gasp, and shout and roar!
So much strange, terrific treasure
I just can't wait to see
So fill me up (fill me up)
Fill me up (fill me up)
And then someday something new will flow back out of me!
And then someday something so surprising
Something so imaginative
Someday something wonderful
Will flow
Flow back out of
