If You Go Away

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 
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 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 
And talk to the trees and worship the wind 
But if you go, I’ll try to 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, 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 slowly till our next hello 
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 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 
But if you go, I won’t cry 
Though the good is gone from the word goodbye 
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away.

If you go away, as I know you must 
There is 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’d have been the shadow of your shadow 
If you might have kept me by your side 
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away.
