1. Slow

From the recording Home Recordings

recorded, played, sung, mixed, and written by me, Irene Allen. Ooh! except the countermelody, "Bei Mir Bistu Shein," originally composed by Jacob Jacobs and Sholom Secunda, with add'l. English lyrics by Sammy Cahn and Saul Chaplin (says Wikipedia)


A trespass sweetly urg'd
Your love is soothing poison
Still surging madly on
Your love is loneliness
Your love is medication
The Sweet Impossible
And with a steady trippin'
Your love keep drifting on

The sun's imposing pour
Your love is light reflected
The water crashing in
Your love's the morning fire
Like the moon as it croons
Over nervous waves
Your love is like the twilight
The twilight burning on

The giant snowy moon
The golden bubble sun
Your love's my heartache fighting
Your love is slow
