“Fall From Grace” Stevie Nicks

I choose to be his confidant
And to keep him from the fire
I choose to be quietly discreet
If that is his desire
I touch with gossamer wings
To be quiet around you
There is so much going on
You could easily

Wake up with a stranger
It’s not something you plan
One night in a world of pain
And you finally understand
Not all the king’s horses, not all the king’s men
Could put it back together

You say you wouldn’t do this for very long
The applause from it all is so defining
Well, it bounces off the wall at you
When the miracle is happening
High priestess, she’s the keeper of the peace in this
Twice as much, intensified
What people will do
To get this high

And now alone in my room
As it all begins again
Was I so wrong?
Why am I always so intense?
In this same place I sit
The same place as before
Well, I came all the way here
Just to watch you walk out that door

I didn’t ask when you shook your head
I always accepted what you said
As the truth and the truth only
Well, it’s not enough that you depend on me
And it’s not enough that you say you love me
It’s not enough to just save face
Because sometimes
You just fall from grace
Sometimes
You just fall from grace

Maybe I am calmer now
Maybe things are fine
Maybe I made the whole thing up
Maybe it isn’t a lie
Maybe the reason I say these things
Is to bring you back alive
Maybe I fought this long and this hard
Just to make sure you survive
