“Until It’s Time for You to Go” (demo vocal) Lyrics
?: Oh, I have here a recording by Michael Blessing.
Mike: Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much, Lloyd. Lloyd and Clyde.
Micky: Let’s go, huh?
Mike: Glad to be here, Dick.
Micky: I’m just so jealous, I could just squish grapes.
I’m not a dream, I’m not an angel, I am a man
You’re not a queen, you’re just a woman, so 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 laughed and played 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 why of me
Don’t ask how 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
