  • 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 planned
    And here we'll stay
    Until it's time for you to go

    Yes, we're diff'rent worlds apart
    We're not the same
    We laughed and played
    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
    Don't ask how
    Don't ask forever
    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 tho' I'll never
    In my life see you again
    I still stay
    Until it's time for you to go Writer/s: Buffy Sainte-Marie

  • Susan from Philadelphia, PaUntil Its Time For You To Go is a song that I relate to tremendously, like so many others, because many of us have loved someone who could not remain in our lives. The version sung by the group New Birth with Susaye Greene on lead vocals is my favorite version. Have you ever heard it? if you haven't you should listen to it. Thank you for sharing what was in your heart with me, and thank you for earning your doctorate, because I too am following in your footsteps. Please continue to be true to yourself and your crafts, and never let anyone or anything turn you from the truth.
  • Bob from Grand Rapids, MiUntil its time for you to go was GREAT sung by Neil Diamond!!!
  • Dan from Charleston, ScI have read that Lee Hazelwood wrote this song instead of Buffy. Supposedly it was written for a male but Nancy SInatra wanted to record it - and did so. It's a very nice version from about 1966?

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
