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
It made me see what I want to see
And be what I want to be
But I think more than I ought to think
I do things I never should do
I drink much more than I ought to drink
Because I 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?
Lilac Wine, I feel unready for my love
Feel unready for my love
