Grace
Jeff Buckley Lyrics


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, afraid to die

My fading voice sings of love,
But she cries to the clicking of time, oh, time.
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, 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, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, 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
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire, oh oh yea oh oh oh yeah unh
Wait, wait, wait in the fire, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, wait ah uh unh ah

Check out the amazing lyrics:

There's the moon asking to stay
Long enough for the clouds to fly me away

Oh, it's my time coming, I'm not afraid, afraid to die

My fading voice sings of love

But she cries to the clicking of time, oh

Wait in the fire

Wait in the fire

Wait in the fire

Wait in the fire

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

Wait in the fire

Wait in the fire

Wait in the fire

Fire

Oh

Ooh, ooh, ah

And I feel that I'm drownin' my name

So easy to know

And forget with this kiss

I'm not afraid to go but it goes so slow, oh

Wait in the fire

Wait in the fire, wait in the fire, oh

Oh, wait in the fire

Wai-wai-wait

Wait in the fire, wait in the fire

Wait

"long enough for the clouds to fly my away "- it was cloudy weather in memphis the day he gone missing

"my fading voice sings of love"- him singing 'whole lotta love' as he stepped deeper

"but she cries to the clicking.. of time.." could be his mother agonizing for her son missing for 6 days

this song even unintentionally , describes his passing away from this life.. with grace of course
Jeff wrote the lyrics after saying goodbye to his girlfriend at the airport one rainy day. "It's about not fearing death, or fearing any of those countless slings and arrows that you suffer sometimes on this Earth, because somebody loves you," he said. "You're not afraid to go."

"And it's just about life sometimes being so long," Buckley added. "At the time I was anticipating leaving Los Angeles for New York. So I was waiting to go. I'm not afraid to go, I'm not afraid to die, I'm not afraid to go away from this place or from any place but it just goes so slow. And I had somebody who loved me in New York. A lot. And it was amazing. It still is
he also stated "Grace is what matters, in anything... That's a quality I admire quite greatly. It keeps you from reaching for the gun too quickly, keeps you from destroying things too foolishly. It keeps you alive and it keeps you open for more understanding."

it it's hauntingly beautiful how this song copliments both life and death... it's the feeling of not fearing to go, we all get back to the universe someday anyways..so drink a bit of wine for this moment and live in fire and 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, afraid to die
My fading voice sings of love,
But she cries to the clicking of time, oh, time.
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, 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, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, 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
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire, oh oh yea oh oh oh yeah unh
Wait, wait, wait in the fire, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, wait ah uh unh ah

I took my first airplane trip to this album.
It had just been released, knew nothing about jb.
Sony Walkman, grace on full blast with a beer in hand, I was flying in many ways.
What passion in his voice!
Operatic. Just superb.
Makes me simultaneously happy and sad. And this track is on my funeral playlist

Joe Thekelly

He was so good.
Burned bright.
Bless

All humans must listen and learn

@Deniz B. "knowledge speaks, wisdom listens." "creativity is more important than knowledge." it is our hope that incomparably beautiful stars will shine as bright, if not, even moreso, it'd be vanity not to embrace that possibility

Listen and yearn

I mean of course you might learn from it but no one can ever come close to creating what Jeff created...
