"The Grace" as written by and Rolf U. Lovland....
In better days I've been known to listen
I go to waste all my time is missing

I'm mapping out my ending,
It's never gonna happen now
These things are condescending
With everybody backing down

You pray to stars that can help you get by
And all at once you forget to try

I'd go there if you let me,
They're never gonna find me now
My life is always empty
And in and out of doubt

Your not coming back for me, these things they will never be
I'm so used to being wrong, so put me where I belong

I'll get back to you,
God knows I try,
But I still lose
And I get back to you,
These days run by,
But I still lose


Angels say they can make you suffer
They give and take like a vicious lover

When all this loses meaning,
You'll never want it back somehow
Awake but still I'm dreaming
And never waking up

Alone...Where I'm not alone

    General CommentThis song was written about a man who wants to take his life because he feels he can't find where or what his purpose is in this world. He is struggling with his inner angels and demons, and he's fighting his own voices to figure out what's right. He is basically asking for help. The original title is 'The Grace Of A Happy Death."

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. I can't help but tear up when I hear the song. I'm listening to the song right now and all I'm really thiking is that the guy has lost someone and they realize that nothing will be the same because that someone is no longer with them. Death? I don't know. Breakup, runaway? All I know is that I love this song.

    General CommentThis song just puts me in a great place. Like nothing else is going on around me. It's a beautifully sad song, and having Dallas sing it was a great idea.

    General CommentI reallly can't believe this is sung by the same Dallas Green! This song is awesome!

    I guess what TheRapture said about the meaning sounds about right so I'm not going to say anything else on the subject!

    General CommentMy friend introduced me to this song, and the second I heard it I could relate at least partially to the lyrics. Now, it seems more and more of it becomes clearer every day. I think it's about someone who is extremely lost, and doesn't know where to turn. He had someone before, but he feels as though they've left him and will never come back.

    General CommentYeah.. definitely a suicide song. But it's so pretty, you can't think of it as a sad song.

    God, I love Dallas.
