Better Not To Know
by Amy Grant, Vince Gill

Album: How Mercy Looks From Here - Deluxe
by Amy Grant, Vince Gill


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

Nothing ventured nothing gained
The risk of living is the pain
And what will be will be anyway

Oh, it's better not to know
The way it's gonna go
What will die and what will grow
Goodbye more than hello
It's 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, it's better not to know
The way it's 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
It's better not to know

Is it better?
Better not to know?
Is it better?
Is it better?

We sowed our seeds watered with tears

Oh, it's better not to know
The way it's 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
It's better not to know

We sowed our seeds watered with tears
