How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
.
Peacemaker
My heart was at war when I met you
(True)
So how could I ever forget the impression you left when you swept through my chamber
The resident stranger
(Peacemaker)
.
Had I slept through the dream
As night protests grew
Then I never would have seen you come to light
Or been invited to delight in the reprise of beckon
Blessed of second sight
(Peacemaker)
.
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
.
Would have died
Before I fought
Before my wings be singed and scorched
Upon the fringe of every thought
Were reasons to proceed free of precaution
.
Fight or flight
All slight in spite
Felt disinclined to either
Life had been a code that I had grown stiff to decipher
In your eyes
I felt like the most homely of insiders
Would have opened up my throat
To feel the grope of your incisors
.
Peacemaker
Peacemaker
.
Chest heaving breathlessly
Rising and falling
I paused then inexorably
Silent yet zestfully
Seen through exceptionally wide eyes applauding
The dawn mists reflected me true
.
Had I slept through the dream
Then I never would have seen my shadow through
Had I walked a path less narrow
Then my shackles would have bound me
Had I lacked a sense of purpose
Then my burdens would have ground me
Had I comprehended duty
Then I never would have ventured forth attentive to the beauty all about me
.
Faith bled devout
Through the cracks in my boundaries
Profoundly I felt then relief
My leathered heart at measured ease
Remembered of the leisured breeze
Midst fallen feathers rising keen on all ascending crest of leaves
(True)
(True)
.
Had I slept through the dream
Then I never would have seen my shadow true
(True)
(True)
(True)
And I never would have dreamed the scene foreseen of ceaseless avenue to you
(True)
.
My final breath mused
Dresses scented perfume
So how could I ever see sheltered your bloom
My resident stranger
I see you clean through
Since the dawn mists reflected us true
.
Since the dawn mists reflected us true
Since the dawn mists reflected us true
My resident stranger
I see you clean through
Since the dawn mists reflected us true
.
True
True
True
True
(True)
True
(True)
True
True
.
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(True)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(True)
.
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
.
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(Peacemaker)
How could I ever forget the impression you left
The impression you left
(True)
