When I saw you in the Garden
Sweet lilac in your hair,
The sunlight seemed to surround you
And bless the morning air.
I wondered what your name was
And if you would dance with me,
I heard you cry for mercy
But, my eyes they could not see.
'Cos the time is right for love,
The time is right for love,
You can pray to the Lord above
But, the time is right for love.
So much for all your sweet words,
All that you said you would do.
Remember all my love songs,
They were promises to you.
But, I don't hold it against you,
I know you're not to blame
So draw your circle around me
And we'll put all your lovers to shame.
