My dear elaine,May I see you again? For I’ve loved you,And I hope to be forgiven,It’s been a cold night,How I long to see the light,To have you there,To feel your hair.Dear elaine,Will it still be the same? From the gateway to your armsI am forbidden.It’s been a cold night,Need the love the burns so bright,To have you there,To feel your hair.Thoughts that once remained discreet,Fall like servants at your feet.Ahhh, ahhhh, ahhhh.Come here, elaine,Please attend to the pain,Please relieve the darken clouds of evening,Prayers I could say,How you swept them all awayI can’t believeYou chose to leave,God(? ) that wears the sallow face,Seems to put in my place,Ahhhh, ahhhh, ahhhhDear elaine,Will it still be the same? Now the house of spirit crumbles,For your love wears many gowns.Love has risen,It has stumbled,Dear elaine,Why should you wish to leave? Dear elaine,May I see you again,For I’ve loved you,And I hope to be forgiven.It’s been a cold night,How I long to see the lightTo have you there,To feel your hair.Dear elaine.
