lilac wine

"i lost myself on a cool damp night
gave mself 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 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?

lilac wine, i feel unready for my love..."

um belo poema belamente intepretado por essa bela, a seu modo, Nina Simone
