Billy Bragg – If You Ever Leave lyrics

Walking out together
All along the shore
Arm in arm beneath the cliffs that tower above us
We hear the breakers roar

Here we found each other
Here we made our home
Took the sea, the sky, the sun, the summertime
Made it all our own

If you ever leave
If you ever leave me
If you ever leave, my dear
There's nothing for me here

The storms that pound the harbor
Scatter driftwood on the beach
A million stars that fill the winter night sky
Seem just beyond our reach

Tides of time march onward
Just as sunshine follows rain
The season's ever changing, ever moving on
Yet our love remains

If you ever leave
If you ever leave me
If you ever leave, my love
You can take the stars above

If you ever leave
If you ever leave me
If you ever leave, my love
Then you can bring the curtain down
On this lonesome town
