Buffy Sainte-Marie – Until It's Time For You To Go lyrics

You're not a dream, you're not an angel
You're a man
I'm not a queen, I'm a woman
Take my hand

We'll make a space in the lives
That we'd planned
And here we'll stay
Until it's time for you to go

Yes we're different worlds apart
We're not the same
We laughed and played
At the start like in a game

You could've stayed outside my heart
But in you came
And here you'll stay
Until it's time for you to go

Don't ask why
Don't ask how
Don't ask forever of me
Love me now

This love of mine had no beginning
It has no end
I was an oak, now I'm a willow
Now I can bend

And though I'll never
In my life see you again
Still I'll stay
Until it's time for you to go

Don't ask why
Don't ask how
Don't ask forever of me
Love me, love me now

You're not a dream, you're not an angel
You're a man
I'm not a queen, I'm a woman
Take my hand

We'll make a space in the lives
That we'd planned
And here we'll stay
Until it's time for you to go

    When I was a young woman I met a young man who had come to my country a job training swap. We were introduced by another gentle man who stayed at the same home with this student. I fell deeply in love with him whilst he was here. I new he had to go back to his own country when he had finished his training. He had come from a wealthy family, I was from a working class family. He spoke broken French English, which was so romantic and just spoke in an English dialect. When the time came for him to leave I was broken hearted. He took it like a man and was very sympathetic towards me. He had a prominent future, mine was one of drifting. Yet for a short moment in life we came together and it was beautiful. I just had no power to hold on to it, and I did not want to end it. So resolved to embrace it for what it was and it has been a beautiful memory through out my life. I could have changed the words by opting out but I chose to let it be and experience it. The wording woman not a angel, and man not a king refers to how we emotionally romanticize the feelings of love. This song was made for me.

    Its about a man an a women who love each other but can not be together. Each is on a different road in life an change can not be. My love and I were on this road. We had to take separate paths. Ill never see her again in this life. Hope to see her on the other side. Love you Linda.
