Lyrics for Grace by Jeff Buckley:

Verse 1
There's the moon asking to stay
Long enough for the clouds to fly me away
Well it's my time coming, I'm not afraid, afraid to die
My fading voice sings of love
But she cries to the clicking of time, oh, time

Chorus
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire

Verse 2
And she weeps on my arm
Walking to the bright lights in sorrow
Oh drink a bit of wine we both might go tomorrow, oh my love
And the rain is falling and I believe my time has come
It reminds me of the pain I might leave, leave behind

Chorus
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire

Bridge
(It reminds me of the pain)
I might leave, leave behind
And I feel them drown my name
So easy to know and forget with this kiss
I'm not afraid to go but it goes so slow

Chorus
Wait in the fire, wait in the fire, oh oh yea oh oh oh yeah unh
Wait, wait, wait in the fire, wait in the fire
Wait in the fire, wait ah uh unh ah

Song Facts

The song was based on an instrumental song called “Rise Up to Be” written by Buckley’s collaborator, Gary Lucas. Jeff wrote lyrics inspired by his saying goodbye to his girlfriend at the airport on a rainy day, and the vocal melody came naturally. In Buckley’s words, “It’s about not feeling so bad about your own mortality when you have true love.”
