Lyrics

Grace

Written By: Pete Melvin

[Verse 1]
She's beautiful, and she moves with such perfection
You wish you could get closer - face to face
But she's there, and here you are
You just admire from afar
Oh, there goes Grace

[Verse 2]
She can lighten up the mood with a smile
She shines her light in every darkened place
But you never bother much,
So you don't know her touch
Oh, there goes Grace

[Chorus]
There goes Grace
Would you believe she wants to meet you,
And say hello, with a warm embrace?
She can take it all away,
So you can start a brand new day
If you just knew Grace

[Verse 3]
You don't want her to see your imperfections
But all your failures, she could just erase
But there she goes again
'Cause you're scared to let her in
Oh there goes Grace

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Oh, her arms wide open
There's no need to fear
Her promise is never broken
She'll open the door to your heart
If you will just let it start

[Verse 4]
If you would just accept her invitation,
She'd take away your pain, without a trace
Can you imagine how it feels,
When the Love comes in and heals,
If you just knew Grace

[Chorus]
There goes Grace
Would you believe she wants to meet you,
And say hello, with a warm embrace?

[Coda]
So you finally let it go,
And with open eyes, you know
Now, you know Grace
Oh, you know Grace

(Never) Let Me Go

Written By: Pete Melvin

[Verse 1]
I was afraid to let you love me
I was afraid to let you care
I was afraid - I didn't wanna let you down
Didn't want to take you there

[Verse 2]
I was afraid that this would happen
'Cause it's happened every time before, yeah
I get too close, I slam that door and run
Can your love open the door?

[Pre-Chorus 1]
'Cause you don't know how I feel inside
All the things I try to hide
All the things that you don't know

[Chorus]
I'm no good for you, Baby
You need to let me go
I will let you down, oh yeah
If you let me get to close
Don't let me get to close

[Verse 3]
Some people could say that they got troubles
Well you know, I got a few, yeah
Seems that's all I got - and I don't got what it takes
And it takes so much, just to say to you

[Pre-Chorus 2]
'Cause I don't know what is wrong inside
All the things that I just can't hide
All the things, I just don't know

[Chorus]
I'm no good for you, Baby
You need to let me go
I will let you down, oh yeah
If you let me get to close
Don't let me get to close

[Bridge]
You really shouldn't blame me,
'Cause you never shoulda told me (what you told me)
'Cause I don't deserve your love,
And you don't deserve this wall (this wall)
And I just wanna ask you,
Why you're still around, after all I've done?
Can you help me tear it down
I need to tear it down

[Revised Chorus]
I'm no good for you, Baby
And I wanna let it go
Don't wanna let you down
If you let me get that close
Won't you let me get that close?

[Final Chorus]
'Cause I can be your baby
You can help me let it go (help me let it go)
I will let you in
If you never let me go
Please don't ever let me go
No, never let me go
