State of Grace (Album Version)

Patti Scialfa

Check your time plan station master
And bless the 3:45
She's rolling fast and free
And don't she look just like me
Spitting off smoke
And all empty inside
I left my baby down
On a city street
Our love
Followed the course of the sun
It rose above the city skyline
And sunk
Behind the turnpike oil drums, well

Chorus:
Come on now mister conductor
Come on and seal my fate
I was raised to find my way
Now I'm going to find
My state of grace

So I went walking down
The edges of the city
To the iron lady
And the holy land
With no English my family came
And money left a stain
On their foreign hands
I don't know how some people do it
They just walk away and they
Don't look back
Under a river
In a cold mud tunnel
My grandfather's ghost's still
Slamming the jack, well

(Chorus)

Last night
I had a dream of forgiveness
We were walking on
Some sacred ground
And a light fell
Ffrom heaven with a promise
That all lost things
Are someday found, well

(Chorus)

I'm going
To find my state of grace
