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 Put my heart in it's 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 Do things I never should do I drink much more than 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?
