"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
La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la, la 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.
