Grace Tab
    ________________
   / Jeff Buckley  /  "I think the fire is maybe what you could call the torment
  / Grace         /  of existence, the continuous struggle to understand and
 / Grace         /  rationalise one's own existence and being. I think in this
/_______________/  song JB is saying that he has come to accept that the
                  struggle cannot be won against death in the end - not that he
necessarily wants to die, but more that he is no longer afraid to give in to the
ultimate enigma of death, the extinguishing of the 'fire' of existence - "I'm
not afraid to go but it goes so slow." Not at all negative in my opinion.
Perhaps a little spooky in conjunction with his young death." - caitsith01


Tuning: Drop D (D A D G B E)

This song is mainly played by an electric guitar, playing the lead parts,
and an acoustic guitar, playing the background chords.
The guitars play the same unless two seperate parts are notated.

 LYRICS
**********
There's the moon asking to stay
Long enough for the clouds to fly me away
Oh, it's my time coming, I'm not afraid, afraid to die
My fading voice sings of love
But she cries to the clicking of time, of time

Wait in the fire, wait in the fire

And she weeps on my arm
Walking to the bright lights in sorrow
Oh, drink a bit of wine, we both might go tomorrow
Oh, my love
And the rain is falling and I believe my time has come
It reminds me of the pain I might leave, leave behind

Wait in the fire, wait in the fire

(It reminds me of the pain I might leave, leave behind)

And I feel them drown my name
So easy to know and forget with this kiss
I'm not afraid to go, but it goes so slow

Wait in the fire, wait in the fire

Jeff Buckley - Grace Tab :: indexed at Ultimate Guitar.

About the artist behind Grace Tab:

Jeffrey Scott Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scotty Moorhead,[1] was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. He was the son of Tim Buckley, also a musician. Buckley gained popularity in the early 1990s by playing cover versions at venues in Manhattan's East Village, such as Sin-é, and he gradually focused more on his own material. After much interest from record labels he signed with Columbia and, after recruiting a band, recorded his debut studio album, Grace.

Over the following two years, the band toured widely to promote the album, including concerts in the U.S., Europe, Japan and Australia. In 1997, he stopped touring and moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to experiment with new material for a second album. During his time there, he recorded many four-track demos and completed his third recording session for his new album with his band, with Tom Verlaine as producer. While awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during an evening swim in the Wolf River. His body was found on June 4, 1997.[2]

Since his death, there have been many posthumous releases of his material, including a collection of four-track demos and studio recordings for his unfinished second album My Sweetheart the Drunk and expansions of debut album Grace and his Live at Sin-é EP. Buckley's first #1 came posthumously in March 2008 when "Hallelujah" topped Billboard's Hot Digital Songs following a performance of the song on American Idol. Buckley and his work continue to remain popular and regularly featured in 'greatest' lists in the music press.[3][4]
