"Full Of Grace" as written by and Sarah Mclachlan....
The winter here's cold and bitter
It's chilled us to the bone
We haven't seen the sun for weeks
To long too far from home
I feel just like I'm sinking
And I claw for solid ground
I'm pulled down by the undertow
I never thought I could feel so low
Oh darkness I feel like letting go
If all of the strength and all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place
I know I could love you much better than this
Full of grace
Full of grace
My love
So it's better this way, I said
Having seen this place before
Where everything we said and did
Hurts us all the more
Its just that we stayed, too long
In the same old sickly skin
I'm pulled down by the undertow
I never thought I could feel so low
Oh darkness I feel like letting go
If all of the strength
And all of the courage
Come and lift me from this place
I know I could love you much better than this
Full of grace
Full of grace
My love

    General CommentThis song brings to mind what it's like for lovers in a rut. The words speak volumes about how hard it is when 2 people drift apart because their love is being stifled, finally ending in separation.

    General CommentI remember when they played this song at the end of Buffy The Vampire Slayer's second season finale. I was already in tears from the death of "Angel" but when they played this song I just started bawling. Like misundazt00d said, it's such a beautiful but depressing song. Sarah has such raw talent, and her voice just carries emotion so well...Kudos to Sarah and kudos too Joss Whedon for picking a great song for the ending of BTVS's second season.

    General CommentI first heard this song on the second season finale, Becoming Part 2, of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And it was the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. To me, this song is about someone living in pain and sorrow and feeling like they can't love someone because they are in such a dark place. It is so beautifully depressing. It's my absolute favorite Sarah Mclachlan song. I cry every single time I listen to it. I can totally relate to the lyrics. When she sings, "It's just that we stayed too long in the same old sickly skin" it takes my breath away. Just the way she sings that is amazing. The way she sings the entire song is amazing. She is an incredible singer with a wonderful voice and her music is magnificant.

    General CommentThis song is probably my favourite song ever. I first heard it on Buffy as well and bought the CD the next day. It's beautiful. I agree with "miss mo" that it's about someone who's experiencing depression which they have to deal with on their own and they have to leave because they've "stayed too long" already and they're only hurting each other. I personally feel that despite being an incredibly depressing song, it's lined with hope. The fact that she knows she could love them more or better suggests she's willing to try but needs to sort herself out first. For the record, I want this song played at my funeral.
