02. Better Not To Know [feat. Vince Gill]

How Mercy Looks From Here
by Amy Grant



 

We sowed our seeds, watered with tears
Waiting for signs of growth, took months of days
And then took years
We took our steps, we took our falls
Somewhere along the way we just got lost
And we lost it all
But nothing ventured, nothing gained
The risk of living is the pain
And what will be will be, anyway

OH, ITíS BETTER NOT TO KNOW
THE WAY ITíS GONNA GO
WHAT WILL DIE AND WHAT WILL GROW
GOODBYE MORE THAN HELLO
ITíS BETTER NOT TO KNOW

Those tiny stems became these trees
With dirt and storm and sun and air to breathe
Like you and me
And some fell down, and some grew tall
And those surviving twenty winter thaws
Have the sweetest fruit of all
But innocence and planting day
Are both long gone, so much has changed
And if we had to do it all again

OH, ITíS BETTER NOT TO KNOW
THE WAY ITíS GONNA GO
WHAT WILL DIE AND WHAT WILL GROW
OH, NOTHING STAYS THE SAME
LIFE FLICKERS LIKE A FLAME
AS THE SEASONS COME AND GO
GOODBYE MORE THAN HELLO
ITíS BETTER NOT TO KNOW

Is it better, better not to know
We sowed our seeds, watered with tears

OH, ITíS BETTER NOT TO KNOW
THE WAY ITíS GONNA GO
WHAT WILL DIE AND WHAT WILL GROW, OH
OH, NOTHING STAYS THE SAME
LIFE FLICKERS LIKE A FLAME
AS THE SEASONS COME AND GO
GOODBYE MORE THAN HELLO
WHAT COMES OF WHAT WE SOW
ITíS BETTER NOT TO KNOW

Written by Amy Grant, Cindy Morgan, Jeremy Bose, and Marshall Altman

Behind the Song:
'This song was inspired by the fruit trees planted at Riverstone Farm in the Fall of 1988, in memory of my grandmother, Amanda Mizella Burton Grant (1905-1988).' - Amy Grant
