If you go away

Barbra Streisand

. .

               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 night was 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
               We'll talk to the trees and worship the wind
               Then if you go, I'll understand
               Leave me just enough love to hold in my hand

               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
               Oh, I'd have been the shadow of your shadow
               If it might have kept me by your side

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

                Please don't go away!

By Dusty Springfield
