Theatre Of Tragedy – Sweet Art Thou lyrics

Play by Raymond, Music by Theatre of Tragedy
"Stay still patient; wilt thou my sister of merciful troth be?
I shall attempt the halter of thy life make less tighten'd! "
"I shall climb the yew,
Will it subdue me or not! "
"Swooning emotio
Ns smite my
Bosom -
I have in aptness depriev'd thy eyrie
"Oh! - but ne'er alas;
Fro many another a lass -
Lodge here fore'ermore. "
Dodge thither sable of yore! "
"A narrow dell hath now for me turn'd into a broad land;
A land rich with fields of the Simbelmynл. "
"Sonorous to my ears are the words
Form'd by thy tongue;
Conquer me! - Waylay me! - Swathe
Me 'twixt thy arms!
Make me sense the wine which is
Runk by queens,
"Make me sense the wine which is drunk by kings, / And let it flow white and
Full in taste o'er my lips. "
And let it flow red and full in taste o'ver my lips. "
"A dais'd bridge o'er the ghyll,
In which a river bottomless -
I would have drownйd,
Yet thou drewest me out soaking! "
"Save thou art not yet all parchйd -
Eavesdroppest ye: A wee drop,
"I can hear it! - I can feel it!
Whence it comes I can only deem,
Yet I will not tarry idly!
Lest this for me is a gay dream:
Let it adamant be -
A dream that will sojourn eternally -
Empty the flagon in
Me! "
In which theatre I will act! "
