Counting Crows - Amie Lyrics

I can see why you think you belong to me,
I never tried to make you think,
Or let you see one thing for yourself,
And now you're off with someone else and I'm alone,
You see I thought I might keep you for my own.

Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you,
For a while maybe longer if I do.

Don't you think the time is right for us to find,
That all the things we thought weren't proper could be right in time,
Can't you see which way we should turn together or alone,
I can never see what's right or what is wrong,
'Cause that take too long to see now.

Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you,
For a while maybe longer if I do.

Come on now,
Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you,
For a while maybe longer if I do.

Now it's come to what you want, you've had your way,
And all the things you thought before just faded into gray,
And can you see that I don't know if it's you or it's me,
But if it's one of us I'm sure we both will see, yeah,
Won't you look at me and tell me.

Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you,
For a while maybe longer if I, longer if I do.

Amie, what you wanna do?
I think I could stay with you,
For a while maybe longer if I do.

I keep fallin' in and out of love with you,
Fallin' in and out of love with you,
Don't know what I'm gonna do,
I keep fallin' in and out of love with you.

Counting Crows Amie Comments
  1. BassPlayerSusan

    Hmmm--Counting Crows if they were a jug band?

  2. Amie SilentHill

    I was named after the original, and I love Counting Crows!!

  3. Kenneth Lee

    Funny that the rock band's cover of this sounds more country than the ones done by country singers.

  4. Amy Knight

    why did they spell Amy wrong?

    Amie Ramirez


  5. michael061282

    I'll be honest, I only clicked on this to see how bad they ruined it... however, this isn't bad at all. It's not the original but it's not a bad cover. Definitely not ruined.

  6. peter goodwin

    adds nothing to the original

    Sandra Dodd

    And loses the beautiful guitar.


    At least it's not totally butchered.

    Ricky Creech

    Lol, you might be surprised to learn this, but covers can be done to show respect or honor the original song or band. It sounds more folky to me. But, counting crows was already popular at this point, plus this wouldn't be a song to cover to get publicity.

  7. Harry Cox

    This always reminds of a woman I once loved called Amy. This song is as sweet and beautiful as she was. I am over her but I will never forget her.

    Scott Schleifer

    Amy (your spelling)? Whatcha gonna do :)

  8. Daniel Dougan

    A great cover of a true classic. I love both versions!

  9. Casey Custard

    This version is way better.

    Daniel Dougan

    This is a very good cover, but let's not get carried away. The original was an absolute classic.

  10. Shay Tilford

    fuck yeah...knock that shit outta' the park adam!

  11. lanes58

    Nice rendition of a great classic by PPL.

  12. quad8

    Nice cover.

  13. justgeno1

    This is for Downtown Amy Brown!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love uncle Gene

  14. aliceparsley1

    Sorry I missed this! First time hearing the album. Liking it.

    Rick Stafford

    Love this whole album!

  15. Kevin Patrick

    love this version! always been one of my all time fav.songs, and adam's voice just makes me melt ...

  16. Debbie Evans

    hmmmmm, this is ok but not great - perhaps i'm partial to pure prairie league's version

  17. MrBuckshot44

    I'm favorite song covered by Counting Crows and done really well !!

  18. amymhayward79

    I've been trying to get my friends in bands to cover this for over a decade :D Love PPL

  19. woodcutterdude

    I'm a big PPL fan and love this version!

  20. johnny romero

    Cover songs Album!

  21. EasyTiger 48

    Does anyone have a download for the Ryan Adams cover of My Winding Wheel included as a bonus track on the import version of this album?

  22. hazmateer2002

    I don't this touches the original studio version of Amie by Pure Prarie League, but I think it is better than any live version I have ever heard (and that INCLUDES Pure Prarie League).

  23. Anthony Hodge

    I love Counting Crows, and I believe that they did an awesome re-make of a fantastic song.

  24. John Mayer

    makes me wanna jam

  25. Bryan Dunning

    Of course everyone is going to think PPL is better, it's their song! The question is whether or not the Counting Crows represented the song well. imo, they did a great job respecting the original and added their specific characteristics to the song. Just like Big Yellow Taxi...

  26. Savannah Craft

    luv it <3 <3 <3 !!!

  27. Rik Held

    nice song but not near as good as ppl

  28. Soaring Eagle

    Good, but I prefer the original.

  29. Kevyn Fitzpatrick

    New Counting Crows album? About. Damn. Time.
