AMY GRANT - Simple Things


Wake up baby look around
Birds sing, ooooh that sound
Reminds me of a line
From Unchained Melody

Feel like I'm a little girl
Best thing in the whole wide world
Is I can see the makings of a memory
I remember how it used to be
Well I'm still dreaming...

Cuz I dream of simple things
I can believe in
Like the feeling this day brings
True love and the miracle of forgiving
I believe in simple things

Ain't nothing like a sunny day
Chit-chat at a street cafe
Just paint the picture, baby
Where you wanna be

Take a walk, take a ride
So far, you and I
Don't need a plan
But we can share
This revelry

I remember how I used to want it all
Funny now the big things seem so small

I dream of simple things
I can believe in
Like the feeling this day brings
True love and the miracle of forgiving
I believe in simple things

Through all the days
The blues, the greys
A ray of light keeps shining.


Twenty-five years and sixteen albums later, Amy Grant takes her audience back to the Simple Things?where she began. Through the soft tones of songs like ?Out In The Open?, ?Innocence Lost? and ?After The Fire?, Amy connects with her audience by getting transparent, reflecting a woman who, like all of us who've struggled with life choices, is amazed by newfound mercy and healing. Balancing light-hearted relationship songs with deeply moving songs of faith and reconciliation, Amy has come "Out In The Open" where she has found:


There is no jury
There is no judge
Ready and waiting
Are the steady arms of love.?


This love came ?After The Fire?, where Amy discovered according to her lyrics:


?After the fire is over
After the ashes cool
After the smoke has blown away
I will be here for you.?


Her life events brought Amy full circle?through her sadness and regret to forgiveness and healing that reminded her of the importance of Simple Things in her life. In the title track, ?Simple Things?, Grant remembers what it was like as a child to wake up to the birds singing and the simple times when she would just have a ?chat at a street caf?.? The song relates Amy?s desire for simple things:


"Cause I dream of simple things I can believe in
Like the feeling this day brings
True love and the miracle of forgiving
I believe in simple things."?



In these words, her audience discovers that Amy has overcome the hardships of her life, and is now reminded of the simple things that she now takes the time to appreciate. Amy Grant stated in an interview: ?Sometimes days?go by, then you go, ?What was the point? What?s the point of being alive?? Her answer to this question is, ?If you want life to be special, you?ve gotta make it special?whatever that thing is.?
