Lyrics to Grace

grace
SOFTLY I TREAD ON HOLLOWNESS
MY BODY IGNORANT OF THIS
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME
HOW DID I LOSE MY GRACE AND
I TASTE IT
wont swallow
the heroin of emptiness
how did this come upon me again again
ch=
this ocean so violent as i seem calm from afar
this siren compliant
with deadly waters of thought
i only know that in the morning as i touch your skin
i touch your grace
that holy place that i miss

i thought i knew all that was you
all that lie in your faith in me
how did you strip this from me
how did i lose my face and
a psalm of hope a psalm of skin
i crucify the numb within
how did this come upon me again again

this ocean so violent
as i seem calm from afar
this siren compliant
with deadly waters of though
i dont know
how i came
to be like you my friend now
i only know that in the morning as i touched your skin
i touched my grace that holy place that i miss
you

—-for those who loved for those who died
for those whose love has not survived
dont ever lose your faith
dont ever lose your grace

This song is about the concept of waking up in the morning to touch your lover and as they sleep you see all the beauty -the truth-the peace-the grace in the relationship. You are at peace and you have all the possibilities.
i was really into Bjork at the time i wrote this and i loved the way she would use harsh drums with beautiful lyrics…
…grace is the holy place in your loved one and in yourself where you can be confident and open to love…this ocean so volent as i seem calm from afar-my buddhist friend mentioned that from afar the ocean seems calm but when you get up close it is so violent…people can be this way when they become vulnerable…
this song was really fun to record because bobbie threw down a funky groove and it became like a train than ran by itself…
