grace lyrics – alan guno

there once was a boy
dreamed of the sun in the moonlight
a prince among men but standing alone
lost in the night
begging the heavens for one wish
his dreams have come true in a world made of stone

hope drowns in pain, joy is chained
who can rule the night when life’s insane?
faith can die – what survives?
and he cried:

chorus:
grace appeared and made me whole
revered all the pain in my soul
what have i now – one thing, nothing more
it finds me, reminds me
my heart will escape the shadow of dreams
the night flies and i am redeemed
beneath your grace a sinner reborn
behold your face, my way to the morn

where is his song?
stars in his eyes bring no comfort
now he returns to a place once enslaved
all this is wrong
sobs from a frustrated hero
too strong to be loved by the world he had saved

pray, pray for light – eyes shut tight
beg for any way to leave the night
dreams can die – what survives?
and he cried:

chorus:
grace appeared, came from above
and taught me that i could be loved
what have i now – just one thing, nothing more
it finds me, unbinds me
all through the night illusions came true
my tears dry for i have found you
salvation comes on the wings of the morn
one life is done and one is reborn

chorus:
grace appeared and made me whole
revered all the pain in my soul
what have i now – one thing, nothing more
it finds me, reminds me
my heart will escape the shadow of dreams
the night flies and i am redeemed
beneath your grace a sinner reborn
behold your face, my way to the morn

chorus:
it came from above
and taught me that i could be loved
what have i now – just one thing, nothing more
it finds me, unbinds me
all through the night illusions came true
my tears dry for i have found you
salvation comes on the wings of the morn
one life is done and one is reborn

a story ends – his spirit unbound
a boy’s life – lost but now found
a second chance, rising high in the east
to find him, remind him
from heaven’s eyes, the grace from above
the sun’s rise that leads him to love
the boy who dreamed in the darkest of night
will now awake and again come alive
