Roberta Flack - 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 you'll stay
Until it's time
For you to go

Yes we're different
We're worlds apart
We're not the same

You laughed and joked
At the start
Like in a game

You could've stayed
Outside my heart
but in you came
And here you'll stay

Don't ask why
And 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
But I can bend

And though I'll never
In my life
See you again
Won't you stay

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

This love of I
Has no beginning
It has no end

I was an oak
Now I'm a willow
But I can bend

Though I'll never never never in my life
See you again
Won't you stay
Until is time
For you to go

    ♪以下はこの曲の拙訳になりますー鑑賞の際の参考になれば幸いです。。。


    「別れの時まで」

    貴方は夢みてたような人じゃないし、天使でもないーただの男ね…あたしも女王なんかじゃない ただの女よ、この手をとって頂戴 /あたしたちの居場所をつくるの、ふたりの思い描く暮らしのなかにーそしたら貴方は居てくれるでしょう、行ってしまうその時までは…

    そうね あたしたちは違うわ…別々の世界に棲んでるーふたりは同じなんかじゃない…貴方は最初は笑って冗談めかしてた、まるでゲームみたいにね /貴方はあたしを放っておくことだって出来たのかもしれないーでもこの胸に棲みついちゃった貴方は この先もずっと居続けるんでしょうね…

    何故かは訊かずに、どうしてなのかは尋ねずに、永遠なんて望まずにーいまこの瞬間 (とき) 愛して欲しいの

    このあたしの愛には 始まりはなかったし 終わりだって来ないの…あたしは樫の木だったけど、いまは柳ねーでもしなることだって出来るはず… /いつか貴方とは二度と生きては逢えない日が訪れるのかも知れないけれど、こゝに居て欲しいの…


    何故かって訊かないでよ、どうしてだとか尋ねないでよ、永遠なんて望まないでよーいまこの瞬間 (とき) 愛して欲しいの

    このあたしの愛には 始まりはなかったし 終わりだって来ないの…あたしは樫の木だったけど、いまは柳ねーでもしなることだって出来るはず… /いつか貴方とは二度と生きては逢えない日が訪れるのかも知れないけれど、こゝに居て欲しいのー貴方が行ってしまうその時まで…

    I was an oak
    Now I'm a willow
    But I can bend

    And though I'll never
    In my life

    Won't you stay

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

    This love of I
    Has no beginning
    It has no end

    I was an oak
    Now I'm a willow
    But I can bend

    Though I'll never never never in my life

    She loves him enough to sacrifice the things that should matter, just to “bend” to have him stay, until it’s time for him to go....Wow!

    In 1967, my mother attended a PEOPLE meeting, she met Jack, she fell in love, my father found out, he moved us in 1970, in 1995, I came home to find her sobbing in the garage, by herself listening to Jack singing on a tape Joan made from Odettes - Joan had called her and said Mr Hopson is dead, Jack never married he loved my mother till he died - so it was time for them now, waiting until death to be together

    CC C

  29. sylvia oliver

    Youngins these days don't know about this!! She brings LOVE alive!!!!!!!

    Miriam Troyer

    sylvia oliver

    Well I am 18 and this music makes my heart ache so deeply. I know that I am young, but this music just gives me this feeling where I just want to break down in tears. My body feels so lonely. I feel like I belong somewhere else. And I just get such a longing for something, but I do not know what. Its like I am a bird in a cage, not able to fly. The song, "Hey that's no way to say goodbye" makes me lose my breath. I guess I want a fairytale love like Johnny and Baby lol. I pray it happens.

    skpgrn

    Sylvia Owens, The time of our lives as young children coming alive! You made a beautiful statement, "she brings love alive"! Only a women that "knows" love would say that! Love and Peace, Skip

    JaQuayvius Deonte Riley-Wooden

    ​@Miriam Troyer I'm 2yrs Younger than You are. I know the feeling! The feeling is De ja Vu. We feel like We've been here before. Our Hearts Desires for so much better in the World. But We feel as though We're in the wrong era because of certain things within Our Generation that We don't like. This kind of Music brings Joy to Our Souls and Enlightens Us to do better and be better.
    We're what You call an "Old Soul." Being an Old Soul can feel like there's a Course, but it also can be a Blessing. God didn't make Us this way for nothing! He wants Us to Express it and show the World that Old Souls are Somebody as well and show the necessary Love that Everyone should, but is so afraid to do because of their Own Egos. We're something Special. Express Yourself!! Feel Free!!!

    Roberta was geniuine, she was herself, her hair , her style, her talent piano playing and singing .  Very gentle music, She evens talk of a man and his eyes, which is unique.  I always admired her as the classic Yisrael Woman proud of who she was. And trueful.  No loud trampy voice, but decent and different.  She was one o F my favorite.
