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
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 :|
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
And 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, as I know you will
You must tell the world to stop turning, turning
'til 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 slowly 'til the next hello.
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 glide on your touch
I'll talk to your eyes that I love so much.
But if you go I won't cry
Though the good is gone from the word goodbye.
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
And I'd have been the shadow of your shadow
If it might have kept me by your side
