If I ever had to say good-bye to you,
let the world come to an end,
it wouldn't matter to me then
I wouldn't want to live with just your memory
Deep inside myself I never would be free
This life would hold no happiness for me.
I could never say hello to someone new
If I looked into her eyes,
I'd be ashamed and I'd despise myself
for trying to recapture what was gone
Just an imitation dream to wish upon
I'd only hurt her, and that kind of love is wrong.
If I ever had to say good bye to you
I can't imagine where I go or what I'll do
There is no way I could face the world alone
I'd be a puppy dog scared and lost without a home.
So please stay with me until our time is through
Let me look into your heart,
and know that we can never part,
and I will always try to make you happy, too.
And the tears I shed are for a love that's true.
You make me laugh, you make me cry
You make me want to live or die
Just let me look into your heart
I know that we can never part
Then I'll never have to say good-bye to you.
If I ever had to say good-bye to you.
