BACCHUS

Don't run away from me
I'm not done with you yet
It's too laate to tell if the carousel's
magic is undone
And I'm afraidof the sunset
Or something that I may find.

Don't fly away from me
I'm not done with you yet
It's too late to know
if the merry-go's spinning
Umbrella in the sunshine.

I was not informed
of night and day
I stood and second-guessed
my life away
And lonely is the only price I pay
And nothing to be said
was left to say

Don't hide away from me
I'm not done with you yet
There's no time for rain
on a window pane
racing in moonlight
And I'm afraid of the shadows
Of something that I may find

Don't glide away from me
I'm not done with you yet
It's too late to know
if the merry-go's spinning
Umbrella's in the sunshine

I'm all alone
I sing a mellow tone
I spoke but couldn't say
So please don't run away

I'm afraid

Hey, Bacchus
don't you know you cannot
Run away
Bacchus I say
Don't run
