A melancholy ghost moves Outside your window certain That brushing past your curtain And dancing through the leaves Will remind you of your first love Who held you warm and tender And gently asked you to surrender To the Honeysuckle Breeze
Now do you see his face love In the shadows and the sunlight He held his tongue to still the dark night Now he's whisperin' through the trees To remind you of your first love And the days before your winter When you breathed the sweet sweet splendor Of the Honeysuckle Breeze
Far away, far away you've wandered And soon forgot the one who loves you still In the ruins of the precious gifts you've squandered Rise again and breath again His will
Come away, come away sweet darlin' While the scent of love's still drifting on the wind Your lover knows your hungry heart's still starving For the gentle one who bids you come to Him
(REPEAT FIRST AND SECOND VERSE)
Oh, breath the sweet sweet splendor of the Honeysuckle Breeze yes...
