If You Go Away



If you go away on this summer dayThen you might as well take the sun awayAll the birds that flew in the summer skyWhen our love was new and our hearts were highWhen the day was young and the night was longAnd 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 dayLike no day has been or will be againWe'll sail on the sun, we'll ride on the rainWe'll talk to the trees and worship the windThen if you go, I'll understandLeave me just enough love to hold in my hand
If you go away, If you go away, If you go away
Ne me quitte pasIl faut oublierTout peut s'oublierQui s'enfuit déjàOublier le tempsDes malentendusEt le temps perduA savoir commentOublier ces heuresQui tuaient parfoisA coups de pourquoiLe coeur du bonheur
Ne me quitte pas, ne me quitte pas, ne me quitte pas
But if you stay, I'll make you a nightLike no night has been or will be againI'll sail on your smile, I'll ride on your touchI'll talk to your eyes, that I love so muchThen if you go, I'll understandLeave me just enough love to hold in my hand
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
If you go away, as I know you mustThere'll be nothing left in this world to trustJust an empty room, full of empty spaceLike the empty look I see on your faceOh, I'd have been the shadow of your shadowIf it might have kept me by your side
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
[spoken] Please don't go away!
