“Until It’s Time for You to Go” Lyrics

I’m not a dream, I’m not an angel, I’m just a man
You’re not a queen, you’re just a woman, hold my hand
We’ll make a space in the lives we both 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 played and laughed at the start, as in a game
You could have stayed outside my heart, but in you came
So here you’ll stay until it’s time for you to go

Don’t ask how of me
Don’t ask why of me
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, and I can bend
And though I’ll never in my life see you again
Still I will stay until it’s time for you to go
