Beth Orton - State Of Grace Lyrics




Put my stake into the ground
Made my claim this time around
And in the selfsame circumstance I’d do the same again
Hold on out for the one I love, for the one I know I’m of
I never would be swayed

It was here before we noticed it
It’ll be here when we’re gone
And if I push you away, well let me be the first to say
That oh I’ve seen your light, it’s in the harbour
Come on pull me all the faster
Back to the selfsame day

Beauty comes in slow release
I awaken to you piece by piece
I have no need for innocence or grief
Put my hand into your hand
And all the words I understand
They fall away like endless days upon the shore
They fall away like endless days upon the shore

We were here before we noticed it
We’ll be here if it’s gone
And if I led you astray, well let me be the one to say
That oh, I’ve seen your light out in the harbour
Come on pull us all the faster
Into the selfsame day

And I put my stake into the ground
In a state of grace this time around
And in the selfsame circumstance I do the same again
I would do the same again
I would do the same again

  1. Alex Nelson

    i played the sugaring seasons countless times(and beyond that!) after the loss of my beloved sister becky. i believe this recording has a place in so many hearts like mine that need the comfort and beauty of this music. to me it was so marvelous. it brought hope and healing in many a mid-nights and early morning.. blessing friends and take care, alex earl nelson

  2. Remi Chabana

    Une chanson magique pour être heureux et triste en même temps comme lorsqu’on est très amoureux, à écouter en pensant à un moment doux de son existence ou à quelqu’un si on est romantique…

  9. razorjules

    I like the way she says, "Again."
    Very British and elegant.
    I hope she tours America, i only saw dates in the U.K. and Ireland.

    Beth this is an amazing album, thanks. I think this is my favourite track, maybe, but they are all good.

    Beautifully said my friend !

    Yes I agree with the statement below, what a nice album this would sound perfect on vinyl.

    This entire new album is stunning.
    Her best work by far, imo.

  14. CarolinaBeachcomber

    Perfect song to listen to as I light the fireplace for the first time this season.

  15. William Kenny

    The overall effect is like listening to a sound somehow created as a filigree of spun sugar and is absolutely beautiful and ethereal....once you hear it, you cannot ever forget it.
