about

A deep and quiet love, even with all it's faults remains the most tender and beautiful experience.

lyrics

The Gates of Grace-(c)2012-Sonya Heller Music-ASCAP

Verse I
When I'm walking towards the Gates of Grace
Will you hold my hand, so nothing aches
And send my soul with birds that sing
And don't let go 'til I get my wings

Verse II
For you loved this fool with bad front teeth
Who danced to the right with two left feet
Wore mismatched clothing that fit too tight
Had dreams that kept her up at night


Pre-chorus

And those two old Crows at the foot of her bed
Who wouldn't fly away 'til the coffee was made
She spoke too much and he spoke too little
Maybe in Heaven there's a place in the middle

Chorus
Thru the Gates of Grace
The Gates of Grace

Verse III
With the best intentions and an open heart
Sometimes things just fall apart
but I promise now as I promised then
This journey takes us to the end

For there's be no Moon without the Stars
Just an empty shelf with an empty jar
No one here to take your place
No one here to help me chase


Pre-chorus

Those two old Crows at the foot of my bed
Who wouldn't fly away 'til the coffee was made
I spoke too much and you spoke too little
Maybe in Heaven there's a place in the middle



Chorus
Thru the Gates of Grace
The Gates of Grace

Bridge and out...
I will wait at the Gates of Grace for you
I will wait at the Gates of Grace for you
Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu-hujah
Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu-hujah
