Lyrics Edit

If you go away on the summer day,
Then you might as well
take the sun away;
All the birds that flew
in the summer sky,
When our love was new
and our hearts were high;
When the day was young
and the night was long,
And the moon stood still
for the night bird’s song.
If you go away, if you go away,
if you go away. if you go away.
But if you stay, I’ll make you a day
Like no day has been, or will be again;
We’ll sail the sun, we’ll ride on the rain,
We’ll talk to the trees, worship the wind.
Then if you go, I’ll understand,
Leave me just enough love
to fill up my hand,
If you go away, if you go away,
if you go away, if you go away.

If you go away,
as I know you must,
There’ll be nothing left
in the world to trust,
Just an empty room,
full of empty space,
Like the empty look
I see on your face.
I’d have been the shadow of your dog
If I thought it might have kept me by your side.
If you go away, if you go away,
if you go away, please, don’t go away
