"Lady D'Arbanville" as written by and Yusuf Islam Cat Stevens....
My Lady d'Arbanville, why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

My Lady d'Arbanville why does it grieve me so?
But your heart seems so silent.
Why do you breathe so low, why do you breathe so low,

My Lady d'Arbanville why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

My Lady d'Arbanville, you look so cold tonight.
Your lips feel like winter,
Your skin has turned to white, your skin has turned to white.

My Lady d'Arbanville, why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill, yes, you will be my fill.

La la la la la

My Lady d'Arbanville why does it grieve me so?
But your heart seems so silent.
Why do you breathe so low, why do you breathe so low,

I loved you my lady, though in your grave you lie,
I'll always be with you
This rose will never die, this rose will never die.

I loved you my lady, though in your grave you lie,
I'll always be with you
This rose will never die, this rose will never die.

    General CommentCat Stevens had a failed romantic relationship with Patti D'arbanville the former model and actress who appeared in many films including some early Andy Warhol movies and later the surfing classic "Big Wednesday".
    She is alive and kicking (and still looks pretty good for someone over 50) despite Steven's song lyrics stating "I loved you my lady though in your grave you lie". It must have been quite a bitter breakup for him to wish her dead. Alternatively, it may be a metaphorical reference to a dead relationship rather than to a dead person.

    General CommentI wasnt having a go, I was saying that someone should figure out what a song means by themselves instead of basing it on other peoples opinions.

    General CommentStop fighting, this song is to precious to be ruined by that, you see.
    And chrisb1, it's actually that way that he doesn't wish her dead, but the death of her is like metaphor for the end of the relationship.
