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 she 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 going crazy, dear?

Lilac Wine, I feel unready for my love
Feel unready for my love
