Talk to Me as Lovers Do

Music: Betty MacNeill.
By Turlough O'Carolan. Found at Ancient Music of Ireland.

Talk to me as lovers do,
Regardless what you have to say,
And I will gladly talk to you.

Be kind, but most of all be true:
Throw your masks and shields away.
Talk to me as lovers do,

Anger, pain, and boredom, too,
Let all that's in you come my way,
And I will gladly talk to you.

We've had rough times, but we get through:
We choose through hurricanes to stay.
So talk to me as lovers do.

Beneath the storm I will renew
My vow to love you more each day,
And I will gladly talk to you.

All darkness turns to light when you
And I can weep and touch and play.
Come talk to me as lovers do
And I will gladly talk to you.
