    ________________
   / Jeff Buckley  /  "I think the fire is maybe what you could call the torment
  / Grace         /  of existence, the continuous struggle to understand and
 / Grace         /  rationalise one's own existence and being. I think in this
/_______________/  song JB is saying that he has come to accept that the
                  struggle cannot be won against death in the end - not that he
necessarily wants to die, but more that he is no longer afraid to give in to the
ultimate enigma of death, the extinguishing of the 'fire' of existence - "I'm
not afraid to go but it goes so slow." Not at all negative in my opinion.
Perhaps a little spooky in conjunction with his young death." - caitsith01


 Tuning: Drop D (D A D G B E)

[Verse]

    "
 1.   There's the moon asking to stay
      Long enough for the clouds to fly me away
      Oh, it's my time coming, I'm not afraid, afraid to die

 2.   And she weeps on my arm
      Walking to the bright lights in sorrow
      Oh, drink a bit of wine, we both might go tomorrow, oh, my love

 3.   And I feel them drown my name
      So easy to know and forget with this kiss
      I'm not afraid to go, but it goes so slow
                                                "

[Pre-Chorus]

    "
 1.   My fading voice sings of love
      But she cries to the clicking of time, of time

 2.   And the rain is falling and I believe my time has come
      It reminds me of the pain I might leave, leave behind
                                                            "
