Lyrics & music by Sable Aradia (Diane Morrison).

Sorry about the vocals on this track. I was too far away from the mic and I couldn't equalize it forward without drowning myself out with the guitar and the ukulele. But hey, it's live! There will be a studio release in the near future; watch my page for details!

lyrics

Sitting here as the sun goes down
And I dread the darkness because it always brings
Thoughts of you in the cricket song
The sighing wind, and the last little bird that sings

And I remember you
Standing in the park, we were kissing in the dark
I can still see you now
Holding me close before you had to embark

Had to embark

I'm waiting for my paramour
I'm waiting for my paramour

In the lonely hours of the night
I turn out the light and lay me down to sleep
I kneel by my bed, bow my head and pray
My Lord my soul to keep

But it's just no use, your face returns to me
Alone in my empty bed
No warm caress for me tonight
And so I'll dream of you instead

Dream of you instead

I'm waiting for my paramour
I'm waiting for my paramour

Beneath a dusky sky, you taught me how to fly
My lover and my friend
The lilacs bloomed, it was early June
Why did it ever have to end?
You're miles away from me
And time drags on, and I wait for your return
We started a fire with friendship twigs
And a spark of love, and we watched it burn

And that fire rages still
Runnin' wild, and devouring my heart in flames
My love eats me alive right nere
It devastates; it kills and maims
I'm going crazy without you here
So please come back soon as you can
We will get married;
I'll be your woman, and you can be my man

You can be my man

I'm waiting for my paramour
I'm waiting for my paramour
