Byrds – If You're Gone lyrics

By Gene Clark
If I need you, it's to me you're everything,
If I have you, if I love you just the same.
If you're here, the night is rightly gone before.
If you're gone, I'll see the daylight and that's all.
If I stand on understanding what is now,
If I ever need someone to show me how,
If the daylight can be hidden by the sun,
If you're gone, then I know I will need someone.
If I love you, If I know how much I care,
If I find the things you are then anywhere,
If I know you, I may never know your name.
If you're gone, then there is nothing that remains
