And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook | by blue-velvet

And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook

There's an attic where children are playing

 

Where I've got to lie down with you soon

 

In a dream of Hungarian lanterns

 

In the mist of some sweet afternoon

 

And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow

All your sheep and your lilies of snow

  

Take this waltz,

With its "I'll never forget you, you know!"

 

This waltz, this waltz, ...

 

And I'll dance with you in Vienna

 

I'll be wearing a river's disguise

The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,

 

My mouth on the dew of your thighs

And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,

 

With the photographs there, and the moss

And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty

 

My cheap violin and my cross

And you'll carry me down on your dancing

 

To the pools that you lift on your wrist

 

Oh my love, Oh my love

Take this waltz, take this waltz

It's yours now. It's all that there is
