Kae Tempest - Grace Lyrics


It was Grace
Stunned by the last light of the sun
We were swimming in a green sea, as deep as a drum
There are things I must record, must praise
There are things I have to say about the fullness and the blaze
Of this beautiful life

The beloved watched the world on its knees
With an infinite degree of separation
That was something to see

And my friend told me death is like taking off a tight shoe
And when I stopped looking for me
I was able to find you

Right there where everything is, transcendent
I can feel myself opening up, getting closer
No hope is enough

I’ve stopped hoping, I’m learning to trust
I came to under that red moon
I was completely crushed

Please use me
Please move through me
Please unscrew me
Please loosen me up

Make music with me
Make everything stop
Make noise and make silence with me
Make love

Let me be love
Let me be loving
Let me give love
Receive love
And be nothing but love

In love
And for love
And with love

In love
And for love
And with love

Surrender, I do surrender
Move through me
And feel me get out of the way
And tune into something more deep and reflective
Than what’s to be achieved or perceived or affected
What’s my problem?
I’m always drawn back to that wrestling match
Ten thoughts in the ring of my mind playing catch
I can’t live for the noise in my head
I just want to dig a big ditch in the soil of my breath and bury my brain there

But love said
«If you bring forth what is within you
What you bring forth will save you
But if you do not bring forth what is within you
What you do not bring forth will destroy you»

It was Grace
Stunned by the last light of the sun
Swimming in a green sea, as deep as a drum
There are things I must record, must praise
There are things I have to say about the fullness and the blaze
Of this beautiful life, of this beautiful life
