The Imposter

The Imposter
By Kevin Max

Listen: [rm]
Lyrics:
I saw you meeting at the new world order
You looked very modern with your narrow shoulders
You were a vision of Holy Grace
And oh you held your place

Everybody wants a soul revival
And you handed me the language and a social title
You were the coco and the go-go baby
And you shook me all over the place
Yeah you put me in my place

I wanted you
I followed you
Ended up leaving everything I ever knew
You fell for me
You believed me
Please believe me
Please believe me

Stop, you know I need you
The moment I see that tear run down your face
My disgrace is in your eyes (I'm trying, (he's trying))
To stop, you know I mean to
There will be no faking
No more of my charades
I know I'm giving up
The imposter in me

A few years later and I have you hostage
To my ways of isolation of my selfish knowledge
I didn't understand what love was about
Until you showered me with grace
Yeah you put me in your place

I wanted you
I followed you
Ended up leaving everything I ever knew
You fell for me
You believed me
Please believe me
Please believe me

Stop, you know I need you
The moment I see that tear run down your face
My disgrace is in your eyes
(I'm trying, (he's trying))
To stop, you know I mean to
There will be no faking
No more of my charades
I know I'm giving up
The imposter in me

This is such a strange beginning
I follow you and I find new meaning
We are formed from all these pieces
Take my love and give it reason
And you know our day will come
And you know our day has come
And you know, you know, I know and you know oh

Stop, you know I need you
The moment I see that tear run down your face
My disgrace is in your eyes
I'm trying, he's trying
To stop, you know I mean to
There will be no faking
No more of my charades
I know I'm giving up
The imposter
I know this is possible
Oh the imposter
Is me.
