Let Me Steal You from the One You Love
Music: Carolan's Draught.
By Turlough O'Carolan. Sequenced by Barry Taylor.
Let me steal you from the one you love
In hopes that as time passes you'll love me.
So deeply does your smile my heart move
That merely touching you is ecstasy.
Normally, such crimes are not my style,
Nor would I infidelity propose;
But I love you so much I can't revile
Anything that some slight hope bestows.
Let me show you how I'll care for you,
How good it feels to have me at your side,
How spring eternal I'll make ever new,
And every want or passing whim provide.
Try me out. I promise you'll be mine
Once you see how bright my sun can shine.
