Brenda Lee – If You Go Away lyrics

(are. Mckuen - J. Brel)

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 heart were high
When the day was young and the night was long
And the moon stood still for the night bird 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, worship the wind
But if you go I'll understand
Leave me just enough love to fill my hand
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away

If you go away as I know you will
You can tell the world to stop turning till
You return again if you ever do
Oh what good is love without loving you
Can I tell you now as you turn to go
I'll be dying so 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, go on 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'll be nothing left in the world to trust
There'll be an empty room full of empty space
Just like the empty look I see on your face
Oh I had been the shadow of your shadow
If I thought it might keep me by your sight
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
