True Love Leaves No Traces

©Leonard Cohen, released on Death of a Ladies' Man (1977)

.

As the mist leaves no scar

On the dark green hill

So my body leaves no scar

On you and never will

.

Through windows in the dark

The children come, the children go

Like arrows with no targets

Like shackles made of snow

.

True love leaves no traces

If you and I are one

It's lost in our embraces

Like stars against the sun

.

As a falling leaf may rest

A moment on the air

So your head upon my breast

So my hand upon your hair

.

And many nights endure

Without a moon or star

So we will endure

When one is gone and far

.

True love leaves no traces

If you and I are one

It's lost in our embraces

Like stars against the sun

.
