lyrics

Something shook in the heavens last night
A wrinkle of time playing in shadows and light
A wave that was born in the black
Hurtling forward from a billion years back

A collision becomes a ripple so weak
Like the stories we tell that are fading as we speak
The clock isn’t moving but the minutes never stop
Time is moving sideways, from the bottom to the top

When a star falls apart, it turns black
It’s like breaking a heart, can’t turn back

I came to realize that the mind is like two skies
One of the dark and one of light
Each necessary and each one right
And Time is the greatest magician on a stage called space
Cuz we’re Miles apart, yet somehow I feel your embrace

When a star falls apart it turns black, it’s like breaking a heart (Can't turn back)
When a star falls apart it turns black, it’s like breaking a heart (Can't turn back)
I feel you dancing around me, even when you’re not here
It's only when I see you that everything becomes clear
I feel you dancing around me, even when you’re not here
It's only when I see you that everything becomes clear

I can see you walking in the garden, with only one shoe, by the water
And I see you sitting in the long grass in the picture by the mirror
And that time we lay in the sand and watched the stars shooting by
I wished for the moon, I wished I could fly

When a star falls apart, when a star falls apart
I feel you dancing around me, I feel you dancing around me

Navigating the night among the stars
Wake up and forget who you are

When a star falls apart it turns black it’s like breaking a heart
The sun will drown in that ocean of black and we’ll only know his ghost
But I don’t fear the crack slicing through zodiacs
Stopping time in its tracks
Gravity draws us closer, reason under attack
Do I know you?

about

Grace McLean New York, New York

Called “electrifying” by The Huffington Post, Grace McLean has a sound that combines Regina Spektor's quirkiness, Nellie McKay's jazz sensibilities, and Fiona Apple's irreverence. Manhattan User's Guide writes "this pop and jazz singer writes seriously infectious melodies with seriously antic lyrics. Her voice can raise the roof, or she can slide off a note and break your heart." ... more
