Grand piano, guitar and sweeping organ add sublime touches in what one might consider a musical eulogy. A woman walks us thru the most tender moments of her life with the one she loved.
"She spoke too much and he spoke too little, maybe in Heaven there's a place in the middle, thru the Gates of Grace"

Lyrics

The Gates of Grace (c) 2012 Sonya Heller Music ASCAP Sonya Heller
Verse I
When I'm walking thru
the gates of grace
will you hold my hand
till nothing aches
and send my Soul
with birds that sing
and don't let go
till I get my wings
Verse II
For you loved this fool
with bad front teeth
who danced to the right
with two left feet
wore mismatched clothing
that fit too tight
had dreams that kept her
up at night
Pre-chorus
And those two old crows
at the foot of her bed
who wouldn’t fly away
till the coffee was made
she spoke too much
and he spoke too little
maybe in Heaven
there's a place in the middle
Chorus
Thru the gates of grace
thru the gates of grace


Verse III
With the best intentions
and an open heart
sometimes things
just fall apart
but I promise now
as I promised then
this journey takes us
to the end
Verse IV
For there'd be
no moon without the stars
just an empty shelf
with an empty jar
no one here to take your place
no one here to help me chase
Pre-chorus
Those two old crows
at the foot of my bed
who wouldn't fly away
till the coffee was made
I spoke to much
and you spoke too little
maybe in heaven there's
a place in the middle
Chorus
Thru the gates of grace
thru the gates of grace
Bridge and out
I will wait at the gates of grace for you
I will wait at the gates, at the gates for you
Hallelu, hallelu, hallelujah
