Talk to Me as Lovers Do
Music: Betty MacNeill.By Turlough O'Carolan. Found at Ancient Music of Ireland.
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 renewMy vow to love you more each day,And I will gladly talk to you.
All darkness turns to light when youAnd I can weep and touch and play.Come talk to me as lovers doAnd I will gladly talk to you.
