"Nevada's Grace" as written by Daniel Jacobs, Travis Miguel, Brandon Saller and Ektor Varkatzas....
In this perfection I lament her beauty
Her voice a sour note in this bitter serenade
In this perfection I lament her beauty
Her voice a sour note in this bitter serenade

And all these words I could have would have should have said
Ring out like gunshots across long lost days
If that wasn't love then what the fuck was I thinking?
I would bear my soul just to bask in your grace
And your beauty, your strength inspires all of my days
I would carry any load just to bear your cross for a day

In this perfection I lament her beauty
Her voice a sour note in this bitter serenade
In this perfection I lament her beauty
Her voice a sour note in this bitter serenade

Your love fills me up when the blood in my body's drained
And your strength is my backbone when I feel every bone break

I'm built for pain i swore to let no one in and there you where a vision a beauty

It takes my breath away you took my breath away
and it takes my breath away how you took my
breath away [2X]

How could I know that you would take my breath away? And
How could I know one kiss would change everything?

Your love fills me up when the blood in my body's drained
And your strength is my backbone when I feel every bone break
Your love fills me up when the blood in my body's drained
And your strength is my backbone when I feel every bone break

    General Commenti think some are wrong in assuming this is a happier Atreyu song. the lyric "i lament her beauty" lament would mean he grieves for her beauty. i think its more about a relationship he thought was really serious and it wasnt what he thought "if this wasn't love then what the fuck was i thinking?" she took his breath away but with one kiss she was gone. "how could i know one kiss would change everything?"

    General Commentmust of my friends when we listen to new cds...we just skip over the songs we think will suck..but i slapped my friends hand away when this one came on.

    its amazing song and it seems to be underated.

    i think its either about

    a) god/or some higher power giving strength to the writer of the song.

    ooorrrr the one i think more.

    b) a girl who can make a guy go on in life.

    General Commentthis song to me is about a guy who enters a relationship.. and totally flips head over heels "How could I know one kiss would change everything…?"
    showing he did not know that this one kiss from this girl could be his soulmate and how he is willing to do anythign for the love she gives him

    General CommentFrom the lyrics, this song is probably about the love that the writer/someone has for a woman. This is quite obvious from the "take my breath away" lines to the literal meanings in the second stanza. This relationship may be a forbidden love, because from the title "Nevada" we can relate this to a place of sin, Las Vegas. With this love comes lust, and we find this in the part where it says "your love fills me up when the blood in my body's drained" and "your strength is my backbone." These are possible sexual references describing an erection. I think the sinful nature of this song makes the magnitude of the last three lines so great. This song is great no matter how correct my interpretation is; one of my favorites on The Curse.

    General CommentIn this perfection I lament her beauty
    Her voice a sour note
    In this bitter serenade (x2)


    And all those things I could have
    Would have
    Should have said
    Ring out like gunshots across long lost days
    If that wasn't love then what the fuck was I thinking?
    I would bear my soul just to
    Bask in your grace and your beauty
    Your strength inspires all of my days
    I would carry any load
    Just to bear your cross for a day


    In this perfection I lament her beauty
    Her voice a sour note
    In this bitter serenade
    In this perfection I lament her beauty
    Her voice a sour note
    In this bitter serenade


    Your love fills me up when the blood in my body's drained
    And your strength is my backbone when I feel every bone break


    I'm built for pain
    Iswear to let no one in
    and there you were
    a vision of beauty

    It takes my breath away
    You took my breath away
    And it takes my breath away
    how you take my breath away (x2)

    How could I know that you would take my breath away?
    How could I know one kiss would change everything…?

    Your love fills me up when the blood in my body's drained
    And your strength is my backbone when i feel every bone break (x2)



    Just addin some things that were missed
