The Grip
Words and Music By Anne Stott


If I sit on this porch and watch the storm roll by
If the heavens above finally tell me why
If the clouds in the nights shed all our tears
Will you stay with me through these years?

I held strong for both of us
In a past I still can touch
But I could only hold so long
The grip won't save what the love has lost

That time we always knew the right thing to say
It's a feather now long since blown away
Don't pray for redemption you can't accept
Moving forward looking back

I held strong for both of us
In a past I still can touch
But I could only hold so long
The grip won't save what the love has lost

One night one day
All that I hold dear
One night one day
Are there any angels near
Any angels near

When they tell our story years from now
How will it end will fate have turned us down
Will they talk of love that might have been
Or will you stay with me 'til the end?

I held strong for both of us
In a past I still can touch
But I could only hold so long
The grip won't save what the love has lost
