Through These Heavy Graces

Composed by Allison Crowe

I’m not better than anyone
and you’re no better than me
So here we stand at the artifice
face-to-face in symmetry

I laugh when I’m afraid
and I cry when taken by peace
I shake through new beginnings
and I scream when I release

I want to breathe
but I can’t catch breath
I want to live
but I can’t shake death

And bathe in light
in the darkest of places
Tread lightly
through these heavy graces

Guilt crawls through my skin
and exits every pore
I exist a floating creature
of heart and bones, so sore

But you stand firm in faith
for your emptiness of soul
And I’m left here with the shaking
when laughter takes its toll

I want to breathe
But I can’t catch breath
I want to live
but I can’t shake death

Bathe in light
in the darkest of places
Tread lightly
through these heavy graces

And shadow takes his cover
It’s piercing with his eyes
No moral lesson learned here
No clever compromise

Just feign of retribution
and tears swallowed ill at ease
To wash the scars from inside
this doubt will not appease

I want to breathe
but I can’t catch breath
I want to live
but I can’t shake death

And bathe in light
in the darkest of places
Tread lightly
through these heavy graces

I want to breathe
but I can’t catch breath
I want to live
but I can’t shake death

And bathe in light
in the darkest of places
Tread lightly
through these heavy graces

Tread lightly
through these heavy graces

Tread lightly
through these, these heavy graces
