Jeff Buckley - 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,

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 +--------------------------------------------------------------------------+ Jon Sebastian Frederiksen - 19th /April /10 Just mail me at Maitinin@gmail.com with questions, comments and corrections!
