Lilac Wine (James Shelton, 1950)- Nina Simone / Jeff Buckley (1966 – 1994)

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 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
do things i never should do
i drink much more that 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 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 she, or am i just going crazy, dear?

lilac wine, i feel unready for my love
