Song Lyrics

A Beautiful Disgrace

New song lyrics:

All the lonely people, where do they all come from?
Is it something that we are or something that we’ve done?
And is there anybody else as lonely as me?
And if so, where could you be?
We could play cards or something

And is this really all that we are?

All the desperate people, what do we need to find?
Is it in our circumstances, or is it lost inside?
I’m not pretty enough to be this dumb
And I’m not brilliant enough to be this much of a loser

When will we all be lost in love?
When will your world have suffered enough?

It’s like the snow falling in May
Tell me it’ll end someday
Because I can’t take much more of these mistakes

All the dying people, where do they all go to?
Will this growing body count ever be enough for you?

When will we all be lost in love?
When will your world have suffered enough?

It’s like the snow falling in May
Tell me it’ll end someday
Because I can’t take much more of these mistakes

Someday I’ll be strong
Someday I’ll be true
One day I’ll be gone
One day I’ll be through
Like answers without form
Like a pleasant bitter taste
This calm inside the storm
What a beautiful disgrace

Someday I’ll be strong
Someday I’ll be able
One day I’ll be gone
One day I’ll be stable
Like the lightning before thunder
Like the words behind your face
I’ll stand back in wonder
At the world you laughed into place

  1. That was my favorite line. Very “guy-dealing-with-feeling-forlorn.”

    This past Sunday my pastor was preaching on part in Romans 8 that talks about all creation groaning, and he said: It is not a groan of despair, it’s a groan as in childbirth–which means that there will be an end to it, and that the end will be worth it all. This song just reminded me of that….

  2. morgan….you’ve done it again. i can’t wait to hear it with the music. it makes me miss the days when we’d come to the duplex or the apaartment and be wlecomed with a “hey, you guys wanna hear the song i just wrote?” i loved that and i miss it so much.

    also, you are extremely talented. i don’t know if i’ve told you that enough. listening to the new cd just makes me amazed at your ability to write songs. they are just really good.

  3. It’s like the snow falling in May
    Tell me it’ll end someday
    Because I can’t take much more of these mistakes

    It WILL all be over someday…absolute fulfillment, happiness, contentment and FUN. Having just lost a dear friend, I have to believe AND have to hear, as well, that it will all be over same day because I can’t take much more of these mistakes either.
