Sara Hickman — Moment Of Grace lyrics

I didn't want a river
But you handed me the sea
I didn't want a forest
But you chopped down every tree
I didn't want these blue skies
But you shot down every bird
I didn't want these questions
That you're screaming to be heard

And the distance between stars
Is the distance between our hearts
And the difference between runners in a race

Is a moment of grace

I didn't want a feature length film
I said a preview will do
But somehow you convinced me
To sit here in the dark with you

And you carry this hole in your heart
You expect me to fill it on the double
But I can't carry more than myself
Oh my own shit and shovel

And the distance between stars
Is the distance between our hearts
And the difference between runners in a race

Is a moment of grace

Da dum dum dum daday
Da dum da dada day
Da dum dum dum daday
Da dum dada day

I don't I don't I don't I don't I don't I don't I don't want you
I just needed you the night
You say a man's got to do what a man's got to do
I say
A woman's
Got
The same right

And the distance between stars
Is the distance between our hearts
Oh ohhh oh
And the difference between runners in a race

Is a moment of grace

Is a moment
