​Pacidy

This song is by Genesis and appears on the box set Archive 1967-75 (1998).

Pacidy, my love
Glowing ember of evening
Your eyes are frozen with guilt
I read my fate on your cheeks
The smoldering coals of a passion
Once a meadow of hope

Days of minstrels and bright steeds
Autumn nights and silk sheets
Your tender battle shed o'er me
Scented lavender kisses
Soft and warm, the union of strength
In a love against life
Love against life

Pacidy, my love
Your touch, so limp, was once frenzied
Your [ragged?] lips were once sweet
A life has slipped through my hands
My spirits sift in a stale sigh
Did love exist as a dream?

Mother fawn of a pine wood
Shepherdess of my grief
Veils a freedom not for me
Far beyond the steep ridge
Where blizzards lash the spirit of man
The frailest of beasts
Frailest of beasts

Where blizzards lash the spirit of man
The frailest of beasts
Frailest of beasts

Where blizzards lash the spirit of man
The frailest of beasts
Frailest of beasts
