about

This started out with a lyric about a summer friend I had and the troubles he had with his girlfriend. The line: 'why can't you just grow old with Grace?' was my though upon his situation.

The song evolved evolved into something else. A commentary on beauty and beauty's perception, from the eyes of a person who loves their partner as the world made them.

Despite this, every time I sing that line I still think of my friend and his girlfriend, Grace. I never told them about the it, i probably still won't (unless they read this of course.)

As far as i know they are still together.

Track Name: Grace
Take the mask off
How do i know you've laughed before?
You're feet have walked a thousand floors,
i'd like to know what made you, you.

I love the creases.
Emotion left a gift upon your face
A thousand times that you say you're ashamed,
You'll show your looks, your soul, your age.

I don't care about the wrinkles, around your pretty face.
Why can't you just grow old with grace?
I don't care about the wrinkles, that surround your pretty face.
Why don't you just grow old with grace.
Why don't you just grow old with grace.

Drop the surgeon,
A knife won't fix what never really broke.
A thousand scars and oh, that wad of notes
Might change your looks, but it won't change you.

I'll still love you,
The you I know, won't need that fake facade.
Years on i'll still thank my lucky stars
That I'm yours, with all the edges.

I don't care about the wrinkles, around your pretty face.
Why can't you just grow old with grace?
I don't care about the wrinkles, that surround your pretty face.
Why don't you just grow old with grace.
Why don't you just grow old with grace.
With grace,
With Grace.
Track Name: 31
We've found a moment,
In spite of everything
Where we can be alone.
And that is something.

So take a day dear,
This one in thirty one.
To sit between the sheets
And make love in the morning sun.

So we wait,
And we count up sleep
In the hope that we can keep
The loneliness at bay.

So here's the thing dear,
and nothing but the truth.
There's time for you and me
and more for me and you.

So we wait,
While we count up sleep.
In the hope that we can keep
The loneliness at bay.

So we wait,
We wait.
We wait.
