about

Power dream pop endures in the restless hands of Her Vanished Grace. On STAR-CROSSED (2012) the lush abrasion of melting guitars stirs the atmosphere with brutal loving care. The odd radiance of these unlikely songs echoes with the delight of their breathless dizzying roar. With quixotic enthusiasm, Nance, Charlie, Maria and Billy continue to search for a sound that resembles the silent hurt and the loud noisy joy of life on earth.

Track Name: Car Crash
Car Crash

Vanish into thin air
Bright flashing light
Hurts my eyes and I see what I fear
Speeding through the night
Heat sparks a fire out of the smoke you arrive

I'm slowly crashing every car
A mile a minute you'll go far

Oh I'm almost there
I'm almost there

Fading out the light
The end of the day is
The end of the day every time
Close my eyes
Heat sparks a fire out of the smoke you arrive

Slowly crashing every car
A mile a minute you'll go far

I'm almost there
I'm almost there

Seeing is believing
Seeing is believing
Seeing is believing

Fly through fly through the night
Sound of the engines
Drowns out the sounds of the fight
In a blind spot
Reflections of nothing expecting the impact I'm shot

Slowly crashing every car
A mile a minute you'll go far
Slowly crashing into you
Got to find out what to do

I'm almost there
I'm almost there
I'm almost there
I'm almost there
Track Name: Fade Away
Fade Away

If it came down to what you see
And the inside is just like me
Would you silently turn away
If it came down to what you say

The sky is white and now it turns to gray
If I were you would I say
If you were me would it still be the same
Canceled out
Fade away

If you know that the world is you
And you know then that it's all true
And you constantly turn to go
You forget all the things you know

Never thought this could be your fate
You remember that it's too late
And the ghost was you all along
And the shadow is almost gone

The sky is white and now it turns to gray
If you were me would you say
If I were you would I still be the same
Invisible
Fade away

Track Name: Break Down
Break Down

If the eye of the storm's invisible
Will you know when it pulls you out the door
And I know that it seems impossible
But all the sky and all the world is yours

What you've broken breaks you open

If it's just a way to get it back
If we're on the way to make it ours
Some kind of answer
Something's gotta happen

If It's all there is to get it
I'll try not to let it break down
Running out of chances
Out of answers

Well you run and you run to get somewhere
Can you leave your hurt where you don't care

Just something better
It's all that matters

Well it's all, it's all, it's all the same
Can you can you tell me where you've been

Something better
It's all I'm after

What you've broken breaks you open

Oh if the world can't forget it
I'll try not to let it break down
Some kind of answer
Flirting with disaster

I don't know, I don't know why
Wish I could find, Find the answer

Into Gold
Turns to gold

Into gold
And it starts
It starts to grow

Ah if the eye of the storm's invisible
You feel the push and then the pulling
Just because we don't know the answer

If it's all there is to get it
If it's all the same

Ah starts to grow
Into gold
Starts to grow
Track Name: Midnight Sun
Midnight Sun

The vanguard spreads out wide
The sky opens
Palisades held high
Track Name: Turn It Over
Turn It Over

Turning it over
Discover the other side
Running for cover
Hiding deep inside

I see what it looks like, what it looks like
You here in the starlight, in the starlight
I'm here still don't know you, still don't know you
So near, moving slowly, moving slowly

Rolling it over
Turn it over and show the pretty side
Hiding behind you
And out comes the ugly side
It carries over
And comes back two at a time
It's not what you wanted
Blinded by the light

I'm here still don't know you, still don't know you
So near, moving slowly
Track Name: Hungry
Hungry

You are the snake who sheds its skin
You let the ugly beauty in

All of the blood and all of the money
Never enough world to please you honey
Sound of the heartbreak leaving you hungry

You always were misunderstood
You are so bad when you are good
You are so bad when you are good

All that we are and all we're becoming
Never enough world to please you honey
Sound of the heartbreak leaving you hungry

All of the blood and all of the money
Never enough world to please you honey
Sound of the heartbreak leaving you hungry

You always were misunderstood
You are so bad when you are good
Track Name: Star-Crossed
Star-Crossed

It's not falling down
It's just falling over
Feel it all all around
You're wrong, You're wrong, You're wrong, You're wrong

Oooh

Tearing all apart
Pushing us together
We will come and go
Alone, Alone, Alone, Alone

Oooh
It's falling down low

And you know it's true
It's the same old worry
Feel it all all around you
You're wrong, You're wrong, You're wrong, You're wrong

Oooh
It's falling down low
Oooh
It's falling down low

It's the same old dawn
A moment's glory
You're alone
Alone, Alone, Alone, Alone
Track Name: Dawning
Dawning

All of a sudden caught my eye
The shiny promise of a lie

It's all the time
Remember when
On the road and on again
Hear the sound of always
Only when you're calling out
It's just the same
It's on the game
It's only when you're sounding out
All those words
Remember when
On the road and down again

You were wrong and I was right
All of a sudden caught my eye

You take your time
It's all the game
And all the ways I call your name
We're crawling
We're calling
It's all the ways we're dawning now
It's only when
You're in the game
Your way you follow
And all the shame you gave away
The shadows follow all around
It's just the road we're headed on
The way before we're gone
Like shadows on the ground

All of a sudden caught my eye
Track Name: Earth Stood Still
Earth Stood Still

We move around in daylight like we do in dreams
Here
Skating on the surface, nothing's what it seems
Here

Don't forget it seemed the Earth stood still
While we watched the Sun go down
There's no way to know exactly who you are right now
There's only love
And when all the pieces break apart
And you feel like you're alone
It's the perfect time to give it all up
And to let it go

Writing down our secrets to bury in the ground
Now
Tangled up in costumes, hiding in the sound
Now

Don't forget it seemed the Earth stood still
While we watched the Sun go down
There's no way to know exactly who you are right now
There's only love
And when all the pieces break apart
And you feel like you're alone
It's the perfect time to give it all up
And to let it go

We move around in daylight like we do in dreams
Here
Skating on the surface, nothing's what it seems
Here
