Lyrics: Anon

Tell me Delia, charming fair,
Why I hope and why despair;
Why I'm blest when thou art by,
Or while absent steals this sigh.
Ease my breast, my doubts remove:
Is it friendship, is it love?

Still I struggle, still pursue
restless cares, and all for you.
Then tell me Delia, lovely fair,
Why I hope and why despair.
Thou canst each fond doubt remove:
Is it friendship, is it love?
