Nina Simone – Lilac wine
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 than I ought to drink
Because It brings me back you…
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…
