I lost myself on a cool damp night
Gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree

I made wine from the lilac tree
Lost my heart in its recipe
Made me see what I want to see
Be what I want to be

But I think more than I ought to think
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
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady
Like my love

Listen to me
I cannot see clearly
Isn't that he coming to me
Nearly here?

Lilac wine is sweet and heady
Where's my love?
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady
Where's my love?

Listen to me
Why is everything so hazy?
Isn't that he
Or am I just going crazy, dear?

Lilac wine, I feel I'm ready
For my love
Feel I'm ready
For my love
