I'll Know the Time

Lui Collins

I'd be a woman, I'd bear a child
Ah but the youth in me's still wild.
I've always wanted it, my body says it's time
Ah, but I can't make up my mind.

Life would be simpler centered round a man
I'd live my life for you, let you hold my hand.
My fears cry out for you, they call me to your side.
Ah, but I can't make up my mind.

November afternoon, alone, a country road
The sky is darkening, the day's grown cold.
The night is calling me to comfort of my home
But something draws me on, a feeling not yet o'er.

Is it the emptiness I feel?
That no one else can fill the well
Of loneliness I hide inside?
I must go on till I fee l the calm settle in.
I'll know the time.

I'll be a woman. I'll bear a child.
Ah, but the youth in me's still wild.
I've always wanted it, my body says it's time.
I'll wait till I made up my mind.
I'll know the time.
