My Lilac Garden

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
                                     Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love
                                     Listen to me, I cannot see clearly
                                     Isn't that she, coming to me nearly here?....
