Subject: Lyr Add: PEACE DESCENDS (Paul Metsers)
From a word sheet supplied with Paul's record, In the Hurricane's eye, SGM 279, recorded in 1983.

(Paul Metsers)

Peace Descends
Though its schedule is tight
When the tatters of day weaken and fray
And the wet street surrenders to night

Peace descends
Though it's just passing through
When I am here and you are too

Peace descends
In the hurricane's eye
In arms that surround with hardly a sound
And never an alibi

Peace descends
And it's never too long
Till the lovers relax and that seedy old saxophone
Burns up the final song

Peace descends
Too late to repent
When the last insult's hurled and the banners are furled
And the winner can scowl at what's left of his world
And the storm in our hearts is spent
