Lyrics – Grace

From Swallows’ In the Shadow of the Seven Stars

Grace

DATE: Friday, April 24, 1891
LOCATION: Glenmore Hotel, Manhattan, New York City

Oh, it’s better when you’re gone
Oh, it’s better when you’re gone
Silence like a sickle
Reaps the coming dawn
Oh, it’s better when you’re gone

Oh, it’s better when you’re gone
Oh, it’s better when you’re gone
I lie awake and listen
For rumors of your song
Oh, it’s better when you’re gone

Rejoice
Rejoice

Oh, I’ll recant if you’re found
Oh, I’ll recant if you’re found
The walls recall your presence
They shudder and they moan
Oh, I’ll recant when you’re found

Rejoice
Rejoice

Oh, when you’re buried and you’re gone
Oh, when you’re buried and you’re gone
They’ll steal the shroud and burn it
Before the poet’s write your song
Oh, when you’re buried and you’re gone

Rejoice
Rejoice
Rejoice
Rejoice
