You're not a dream
You're not an angel
You're a woman

I'm not a king
I'm a man
Take my hand
We'll make a space
In the lives that we had 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
There at the start like in a game
You could have 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 of me,
Don't ask how.
Don't ask forever of me,
Just love 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
Yet here I'll stay
Until it's time for you to go

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