Absinthe
(c) 2008 Bill Gaunce

I've read all of those allegations
They had it wrong in Revelations
Lautrec, Van Gogh, Wilde and Poe
So many more we'll never know
She's opened up with rave reviews
That sticky sweet temptress
The lovely green muse

Rejoiced in poetry and art
A seductive whore, a heartless tart
Through the worm -wood psychedelic haze
My mind goes soaring through the maze
Never slowing, don't dare tarry
That sticky sweet temptress
The lovely green fairy

I know, I know, I know, I know,
I tried but couldn't let it go
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder

I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
My heart is hanging from my sleeve
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder

Floating like a boozy vision
Through the second, third revision
Seeing things as they should be
But fading as my mind flows free
Falling at her feet we coalesce
That sticky sweet temptress
The Lovely green goddess

Falling from my world surreal
Her grip has lost it's old appeal
But were as one, a binary star
I'm seeing things as they really are
And ending now my dialog
With that sticky sweet temptress
the lovely green fog

I know, I know, I know, I know,
I tried but couldn't let it go
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder

I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe
My heart is hanging from my sleeve
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder

I know, I know, I know, I know,
I tried but couldn't let it go
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
