I lost myself on a cool damp night
I gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree
I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see
And be what I want to be
When I think more than I want to think
I do things I never should do
I drink much more that I ought to drink
Because it brings me back you...
Lilac wine is sweet and heady like my love
I feel unsteady like my love...
Listen to me I cannot see clearly
Isn’t she coming to me nearly here?
Lilac wine is sweet and heady where’s my love?
I feel unsteady where’s my love?
Listen to me why is everything so hasy?
Isn’t that she or am I just going crazy dear?
Lilac wine I feel unready for my love
For my love
