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 who I want to be
When I think more than I ought to think
And 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... like my love...
Lilac wine... I feel unsteady... like my love
Listen to me... I cannot see clearly
Isn't that she coming near here?
Lilac wine is sweet and heady... where's my love?
Lilac wine... I feel unready... where's my love?
Listen to me, why is everything so hazy?
Isn't that she, or my mind is going crazy, dear?
Lilac Wine is sweet and heady... Where's my love?
I... I feel unready for my love...
