A Moment's Grace Lyrics

I wasn't born this way
I've been living a lie they say
So when it brought me to my knees
Well, I had everything so tell me would you please
How could I possibly have needed so much more

The thing I was craving then
Was some kind of laboring
So I might find a friend
In all the aching in my muscles as they hurt
Oh won't you put my hands to work
To ease my mind

And you realize in a moments grace
You've been unraveling the fabric of your coat
And you pick a line down the wall and trace
Until the end
And when you walk back sorry
With a folding body
Like you should
No I am not
Gonna die this way

Maybe it was the mold you see
That was knocking the wall in me
And I forgot just what it was
That I had needed for all the time I'd been given
Maybe I'd forgot what living was now for

And you realize in a moments grace
You might just already be on to something good
And you pick a line down a cord and trace
Because you can
And when it comes back heavy
You'll be more than ready
Like you should
Cause I am not
Gonna die this way

Through a crack in the road it sprung
The seedling warm and young
Stretching out for the sun
It's August and I'm grinnin'
For this time I might be winnin'
As the moving lights that time of year lay still
And as my body changes a pace I seem to know again
That I am not gonna die this way

And I'll hold my misses
In a bed of kisses
Like I should
Cause I am not
Gonna die this way

What is the Meaning of A Moment's Grace?

I think he sings about the realization that he should go and do the things that feel so strongly before it's too late, because he's going to die alone like everyone does and he can't take these things with him. Then he realizes, in a moment's grace, that he's been preoccupied, and then feels regret, but he doesn't want to die with regrets.
