about

The gorgeous post-punk ballad “Grace” – where dreams find eventual destruction but hope also rises like kites on a warm breeze - lofted by chiming, bell-like guitars, soaring vocals and propulsive bass & drums interlocked into deep interstellar warp drive.

lyrics

Grace
(music: SAS - lyrics: David Soule – © 1984)

I followed this bell, into the valley of loss
Entered the absence through a crack in the shell
Waited so long, for the destruction of dreams
And waiting for the clarity that can never fail


Though I try, still the rain’s a fact
On a street that runs in every direction
After the absence of your violent grace
Racing black and fiery in pursuit of perfection


(BRIDGE)

Oh, and god – when I can see the kites
Like hot prayers rising in the steam of the night
Let me rise to understand – by convection
Now the horror is vision and a sacred infection
