If You Go Away Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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
When our love was new and our hearts were high

When the day was young and the nights were 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'll stay I'll make you a day
Like no day has been or will be again
We'll sail the sun, we'll glide 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 fill up my hand
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away

If you go away as I know you will
You must tell the world to stop turning
Till you return again if you ever do
For what good is love without loving you

Can I tell you now as you turn to go
I'll be dying slow to the next hello
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

I 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

But if you'll stay, I'll make you a night
Like no night has been or will be again
I'll sail on your smile, I'll glide on your touch
I'll talk to your eyes that I love so much

But if you go I know I will cry
And all the good is gone from the words goodbye
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
Please don't go away
