what do you know about "Grace"?

Anybody know if this song was written about a specific person or anything else about it? Thanks!

Well I could give you one explanation, but it would end up in the Free Your Mind or Goal is Soul area. From reading the lyrics, very possible it's Christianity related.

"It's the name for a girl, but it's also a thought that changed the world."

I think the song is about unconditional love whether that be from God, a family member, a lover, a friend, anyone.

The name of the young girl in "The Horse Whisperer" was Grace. I just saw that movie for the first time this past weekend. And, the overall theme of that movie was love and acceptance and forgiveness and overcoming mountains of despair and obstacles. The movie was about "things and feelings you can't leave behind" and a new beginning built on a foundation of love.

A new beginning could be another interpretation of 'Grace'.

"She travels outside of karma"

Grace is the only force in the universe stronger than karma, because while karma is getting what you do deserve, grace gives you what you don't.
