Four Grace.

Song I wrote 3-4 years ago.  Ended up being a really cool thing – somehow it became completely based around the number four:

4 chords
4 notes strummed per chord
4 verses
4 lines per verse
4 syllables per line (roughly)
And – the Capo is on the fourth fret!

If only I could have made it so it was track four on the cd!  Does not fit there though, ha.  So it is track 6.

I do not usually write metaphorically or cryptically…but this one just happened that way I guess. 3 verses present a story…and each line of the fourth verse resolves that story.  The idea of beauty growing out of pain/loss.

Four Grace

Flames burn so far
Through trees so green
Watch as trees fall
Watch as trees die

Wind blows so hard
On seas with fear
Waves are too high
Waves take us down

Rain falls  so soft
And drowns all life
Like tears of God
Like pain Like loss

Life starts in ash
In deep sunk wrecks
Vows in the sky
Grace writes it’s name
