Demo: Your Grace

All the songs I post to this blog, like the writing and drawing posts, are rough sketches for more professionally produced versions that may or may not ever see the light of day. I find it helps to get an idea down in some form while it’s fresh in my mind with the intention of returning to it when I have the time and resources to do it justice. The concept behind these lyrics was an appreciation of a woman’s grace, as well as a play on the grandiose title “Your Grace.”
 
I wrote and recorded this song during the blizzard. When you’re snowbound, the options are limited and I reverted to the old standby of songwriting.

The photos in the video are of the sunset on January 24, the day after the blizzard.

I like the nighttime
Because it knows how to hide a desperate man
I like you, too
Because I think you might understand

I’ll climb the mountain
If you tell me that I can
Or I’ll just wait here
In this sea of burning sand

The beat of your heart is setting the pace
Your eyes reflect the smile on my face
Nobody ever moved with such grace
Your grace

I like drinking
Because it helps me to unwind
It helps me to relax
And rearrange my mind

I like the north star
Because it shows me what is true:
I never liked anything 
More than I like you

The beat of your heart is setting the pace
Your eyes reflect the smile on my face
Nobody ever moved with such grace
Your grace
