Billy Joel

State of Grace

 

 

There you go, slipping away into a state of grace

I know the look that comes across your face

It's so familiar to me

Here I am, trying to keep you in my line of sight

I'm never certain that you read me right

Sometimes you don't want to see me

 

Here we are, both of us know we're in love

But that isn't always enough

I never could rise above it all, down I fall

 

But darling there you go, slipping away into a state of grace

Granted, this world is not a perfect place

Still it's the world that I'm in

Here I am talking while you don't hear a word I say

Knowing you're watching me from far away

Somewhere that I've never been

 

Don't you see, you lived a different life than me

It doesn't mean you have to be afraid of how

We're not the same, don't leave me now

 

But darling there you go, slipping away

 

How can I get you to stay where you are

Keep you from going to far

Holding you here is so hard to do...I'm losing you

 

And darling there you go, slipping away into a state of grace

Drifting away into your sacred place

Someplace that I've never been

There you go, slipping away, slipping away into a state of grace

There you go, slipping away into a state of grace

There you go...drifting away...
