State of Grace

Recommended Posts

Is this one about Duff's daughter or is it about the cover of Amazing Grace that Axl was supposed to record with Sebastian Bach back in the 1990's? I choose to believe that it was inspired by Budd's classic line from Halloween II: "Amazing Grace, come sit on my face!"

Based on the above, the song could be about both then, no?

And I always liked this Wolverine cover.   Poor Wolvie.  His girlfriends always end up getting killed.  Usually by Sabretooth.

State of Grace
[alt lyrics]
 
 
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 don't mean you have to be afraid of how
We're not the same, don't leave me now
But darling

Damn... Another song about Slash? ;)

Great lyrics, very mature. The Billy Joel influence is clearly noticeable but Axl manages to bring the lyrics to another dimension in his superbly artistic way.

No storm metaphor, no rhyming the same word. 0/10.

no mention of having what it takes to be a man... obvious fake lyrics
