AMY GRANT lyrics - Shovel In Hand

AMY GRANT
"Shovel In Hand"
feat. Will Hoge

Life can change in the blink of an eye
You don't know when and you don't know why
"Forever Young" is a big fat lie
For the one who lives and the one who dies

I watched my son - shovel in hand
Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
Goodbye two boys, hello one man

This son of mine will leave in the fall
New friends might ask why he stand so tall
His life was changed with a telephone call
Not even he understands it all

I watched my son - shovel in hand
Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
The cool dark dirt on the casket lands
Nineteen years old and he's buryin' a friend
Goodbye two boys, hello one man

I watched my son - shovel in hand
Go from bulletproof boy to a full-grown man
