Jeff Buckley - Grace

There's the moon asking to stay
Long enough for the clouds to fly me away
Well it's my time coming, I'm not afraid to die
My fading voice sings of love,
But she cries to the clicking of time
Oh, time

Wait in the fire...

And she weeps on my arm
Walking to the bright lights in sorrow
Oh drink a bit of wine we both might go tomorrow
Oh my love

And the rain is falling and I believe
My time has come
It reminds me of the pain
I might leave
Leave behind

Wait in the fire...

And I feel them drown my name
So easy to know and forget with this kiss
I'm not afraid to go but it goes so slow

"Grace" is the title track from Jeff Buckley's first album Grace (1994). It was the album's first single, and was also released as a video. The song showcases Jeff Buckley's vocal range and singing skills. The song was based on an instrumental song called "Rise Up To Be" written by Buckley's collaborator, Gary Lucas. Jeff wrote lyrics inspired by his saying goodbye to his girlfriend at the airport on a rainy day, and the melody came naturally. In Buckley's words, "(It's about) not feeling so bad about your own mortality when you have true love." Buckley invited Lucas to play on the album, along with "Mojo Pin"; two songs that Lucas had created the main riffs for, and Buckley had expanded upon, making up the "Grace" heard on the album, and earlier on Songs to No One 1991–1992; These songs were prominent in gigs around 1991 onwards.
