the hand of grace draws the line

there’s no guard to keep you from crossing my mind
it’s absurd to keep it from happening, but still I try
there you are in that dress, as you step from the curb
the damage done, I confess, I did with just one word

like the Aussie Eddy, here I am spinning the wrong way
never really ready for what my mouth is going to say
then you step into view and I almost forget
that of all that’s happened to me, baby,you’re the best

It’s not clear, but it’s true
you’re loving me; He’s loving you
the hand of grace draws the line
and we’ll get it right this time

the awful things we’ve sown can always be redeemed
the countless way’s I’ve grown are not easily seen
unless grace is looking, taking it in at a glance
and I’m still here waiting to hold you as we dance

It’s not clear, but it’s true
you’re loving me; He’s loving you
the hand of grace draws the line
and we’ll get it right this time

I know you’re trying hard to quietly forget
all the weeds grown in the yard keep the winter’s grass in check
but there’s one thing to remember as you try to fill your mind
and block out the cold of December — with your hand in mine

It’s not clear, but it’s true
you’re loving me; He’s loving you
the hand of grace draws the line
and we’ll get it right this time
