cd imgSAVED

  Saved session 3, Muscle Shoals Studio, Sheffield AL - 13.feb.1980, album version  

I you find it in your heart, can i be forgiven
Guess i owe you some kind of apology
I've escaped death so many times, i know i'm only livin'
By the saving grace that's over me

By this time i'd thought that i would be sleepin'
In a pine box for all eternity
My faith keeps me alive but i'll still be weepin'
For the saving grace that's over me

Well the death of life then comes the resurection
Wherever i'm welcome is where i will be
I put all my confidence in him, my sole protection
Is the saving grace that's over me

Well the devil's shining light, it can almost be blindin'
But to search for love that ain't no more than vanity
As i look aound this world all that i'm finding
Is the saving grace that's over me

The wicked know no peace an' you just can't fake it
There's only one road an' it leads to cavalry
It gets discouragin' at times but i know i'll make it
By the saving grace that's over me
