This song is about “not feeling so bad about your own mortality when you have true love.”
For context/clarity/kicks, you can see the lyrics to Grace here. I’m pretty sure you can find the track on iTunes or some similar musical outlet.
I found a good article while perusing the web to verify that I heard Mr. Buckley’s introduction clearly and transcribed it accurately. Here’s an excerpt from that article:
“…what Buckley is best remembered for… [his] lack of inhibition. He sings with every emotion he has, turning all of his energy into a seduction of the individual listener.”
Grr. That’s precisely what drew me into his music, and it’s what keeps me coming back time and again… (Are you getting the hint, people? Do whatever it takes– get your hands on some Jeff Buckley tunes and just rock the hell out. Call it a “shared experience.” Humor me.)
