Graces

I’m not trying to be all that unkind
I’m just pickin’ up the pieces of my life
I fall asleep to memories of who I used to be
When I could fall in love with anyone I meet

Oh I don’t know why I act like I do
When our love carries us off to different places
And I’ve never learned when to take, when to give
What can I say to be back in your good graces again?

I’ve travelled on this road for much longer than you know
My heart chose which direction I should go
But the skin I have is aging and my eyes have seen enough
And I think that it’s time I come home

Time is a prism, a reflector of light
Revealing who is young and full of life
And you might be the best thing that I have ever seen
Ageless in the way that I need

Oh I don’t know why I act like I do
When our love carries us off to different places
And I’ve never learned when to take, when to give
What can I say to be back in your good graces again?
