If you go away on this summer day
Then you might as well take the sun away
All the birds that flew in the summer sky
And 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 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 ever 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
And 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, if you go away

If you go away, like I know you will
You must tell the world to stop turning
Till you return to me if you ever do
Oh what good is love without lovin' you?
I can tell you now, as you turn to go
I'll be dyin' slowly till your next hello

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 night
Like no night has ever been or will be again
I'll sail on you smile, I'll ride on your touch
I'll talk to your eyes that I love so much
But 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, if you go away

If you go away, like I know you must
There'll be nothin' left in this world to trust
Just an empty room, full of empty space
Like that empty look I see on your face
I'd have been the shadow of your shadow
If I thought it might have kept me by your side

If you go away, if you go away
If you go away, if you go away
