Saving Grace

Saving Grace

I'm not as quick as I was, but I get by
What else can you do, 'cept lay down and die?
The world keeps on moving, it don't ever rest
I tell myself, wouldn't it be nice if for a change
I was life's guest?

The life of the heart, is a terrible thing
It can break you in two, or cause you to sing
Spend your life chasing rainbows or love's saving grace
Catch yourself watch the passing years mark the time
In the cells of your face

Never could keep a secret, never had a life of my own
Always did what came natural, spent too much time alone
I've been blessed with a life to live, don't want to piss it away
Like a star makes a million bucks, ends up lonely and broke
Ain't it a shame?

Ain't it a shame?
My tears fell like rain
Ain't it a shame?
You're the one to blame
