​But For The Time

This song is by Jerry Jeff Walker and appears on the album Bein' Free (1970).

How I tried not to hide our goodbye
And see you crying
But it had to be
Still all we had good and bad
Can't make us sad
But only glad that
Our love was free
And I'll count the times
I spoke the lines
I love you, I love you

I'd like to say in every way how much you made
Me want to stay here
And I thought I might
But rambling on has been my song for far too long
To end it all here
It wouldn't feel right
Yes that's been my crime
Just moving on down that line
So long, so long

But for the time my parting line is not goodbye
But simply I'll be
Here within your heart
For there I know a love can grow and not turn cold
Like it was before we
Felt these feelings start
And if I lose my way
I'll know there's something safe
Here with you, here with you

I'll curse my fate again
Blind man's bluff I'll play
But surely some day, some way, I will stay

But for the time my parting line is not goodbye
But simply I'll be
Here within your heart
For there I know a love can grow and not turn cold
Like it was before we
Felt these feelings start
And it's I'll count all the times
I spoke the lines
I love you, I love you
