Story

This song was inspired by a poem by my friend Charles Clifford Brooks III called Blues Solo. I took the poem to a writting session with Sunny Hilden and John DePatie a few years back where we used some of Cliff's lines and the mood of the poem to come up with this blues song called State of Grace. So it was a very cool collaboration between all four of us. This was before Cliff published his book of poems called The Draw of Broken Eyes & Whirling Metaphysics. Since then he has been nominated for 2 Pushcarts, a Pulitzer in Poetry, and Georgia Author of the Year! Recently his friend Holly Holt created a picture video for this track and you can view that here on my YouTube channel under Debbie's Music Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL407DC6C338509698 

For music supervisors: There is also a male version of this song. 

Lyrics

State of Grace

By Debbie Hennessey, Sunny Hilden, John DePatie & Charles Clifford Brooks

 

Some roads snake on all evening

Like a prophet who takes me for a ride,

This road of silence climbs a mountain

Redemption sleepin’ on the other side...

 

CHORUS:I’m movin’ on, so movin’ on,

Wherever I can find my place,

Whatever I need to face,

I’m movin’ on, just like the dawn,

Movin’.........to the state of grace...

 

Some truth hits like a freight train,

Leaving sorrow that drives your dreams insane,

This truth rises like morning

To wake me with a drifting sheet of rain...

 

CHORUS:I’m movin’ on, so movin’ on,

Wherever I can find my place,

Whatever I need to face,

I’m movin’ on, just like the dawn,

Movin’.........to the state of grace...

 

BRIDGE:I’m standin’ my ground

By not hangin’ around,

Gotta find my better day

Away from regret,

All I long to forget,

Getting’ out of my own way....

               

CHORUS:I’m movin’ on, so movin’ on,

Wherever I can find my place,

Whatever I need to face,

I’m movin’ on, just like the dawn,

Movin’.........to the state of grace...

I’m movin’......................................to the state of grace...
