If you go away
On this summer's 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

And 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

But if you stay
I'll make you a day
Like no day has been
Or will be again

We'll sail on the sun
We'll ride on the rain
We'll talk to the trees
And worship the wind

Then if you go
I'll understand
Leave me just enough love
To hold in my hand

If you go away
If you go away
If you go away

Ne me quitte pas
Il faut oublier
Tout peut s'oublier
Qui s'enfuit dj

Oublier le temps
Des malentendus
Et le temps perdu
A savoir comment

Oublier ces heures
Qui tuaient parfois
A coups de pourquoi
Le coeur du bonheur

Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

But if you stay
I'll make you a night
Like no night has been
Or will be again

I'll sail on your smile
I'll ride on your touch
I'll talk to your eyes
That I love so much

Then if you go
I'll understand
Leave me just enough
To hold in my hand

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 this world to trust

Just an empty room
Full of empty space
Like the empty look
I see on your face

Oh, I would have been
The shadow of your shadow
If it might have kept me
By my side

If you go away
If you go away
Please don't go away
