GRACE NOTES (Admin BMI 2016)
Music and lyrics by Muriah Rose

On the road, fourth of July
Fireworks blossom against that Wyoming sky
We all cheered, but the babies all cried
I’m just taking grace notes tonight

Stepped in a bar, neon lights
Band played Poncho and Lefty
brought tears to my eyes
The rodeo riders all danced with their wives
I’m just taking grace notes tonight

We’ve got bodies made of the stuff of stars
but they’re clumsy and easily scarred
Tender heartbeat beneath the clay
We always mean more than we ever say
Go to bed, kiss goodnight
Laugh at ourselves as we turn out the light
Hold your hand in the darkness, it’ll be alright
I’m just taking grace notes tonight

We’ve got bodies made of the stuff of stars
but they’re clumsy and easily scarred
Tender heartbeat beneath the clay
We always mean more than we ever say
Forgive me sweetheart when I don’t get it right
I’m just taking grace notes tonight
