Sweet concord mellow wine
Loosening my tongue
As I tell all
To all
About you the volcano erupting
Into my life
Storming verbally
Crushing my heart
But I don't cry
Not me!
Sweet concord mellow wine quiets me!
And as you claim you are mine
I ask, 'Lord why me'?
'I asked for roses and you set me a tree'!
